City of Los Angeles Tech Fair Jan 27th 2017
#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.

Apt-get? Yum? Synaptic? … What?!?

apt-get-mooPackage 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.

From Wikipedia:

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.

Um, Yeah, OK.

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.

Happy updating!
