#LosAngeles #WomenInTech The City of LA is sponsoring a Tech Fair Jan 26th. Free tickets are available, but not for long. Link to announcing tweet and relevant info below.
Join the Office of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and the City’s Entrepreneur in Residence Jason Nazar, for one of the City’s largest Technology Job Fairs taking place on Thursday, January 26th from 11-8pm at The Reef in Downtown Los Angeles. The fair will feature 200+ of LA’s premier technology companies looking to hire great candidates in engineering, marketing, sales, and more.
The tech ecosystem in Los Angeles has experienced enormous growth the last few years, marked by record numbers of companies being started, massive funding rounds, and many high-profile acquisitions and exits. With more students graduating with engineering degrees in LA than any other market, there is no better time than now, to stay in LA and work for one of LA’s premiere technology companies.

Package management. Every Linux distro has one, or more, ways to update and/or install software. These one, or more, ways are grouped under the “package management” subsystems in Linux.
A package manager or package management system is a collection of software tools that automates the process of installing, upgrading, configuring, and removing computer programs for a computer’s operating system in a consistent manner.

New to Linux and found that confusing? Here are a few other resources that are a little more helpful that I’d like to share.
- The first is a big picture overview from How-to Geek. This article takes LInux package management terms and breaks them down into smaller categories. How Software Installation & Package Managers Work On Linux
- Got the big picture and ready for the nitty-gritty? Digital Ocean has written up a wonderful comparative tour of the different package management commands. Package Management Basics: apt, yum, dnf, pkg
