Here are some awesome pics from the event and our celebration after :-D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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.
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.
- 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
Thank you to all our Chix and Mentors who attended!!!!!

Developers need a comfort level with the basics of Linux that’s impossible to get from on line tutorials or a book. Interacting with the servers at Amazon Web Services (AWS), Digital Ocean, or other cloud providers will almost always require command line interface (CLI) basics. Get your hands down and dirty with the Linux command line without giving up your ‘other’ operating system.
Linux can be run from a Flash/USB drive, a live CD, or within one of the many virtual machines like VMware, VirtualBox, or Parallels. This “Good ‘Ol Fashioned Linux Installfest” aims to get you up and running via a virtual machine, a live CD/USB disk, or an install to your current computer.
This Installfest is aimed at beginners looking to get into Dev or Dev Web work who need a hand up in Linux CLI. If you have experience in Linux and would be interested in mentoring please contact the organizers directly.
With the kind sponsorship of IndieDesk DTLA this event will be on June 4th from 11am – 3pm. The first 1.5 hours will be dedicated to installing Linux following by a quick CLI tutorial to get you started.
In order to best respond to each participant’s questions throughly we are limiting RSVPs to 10 people. Depending on demand another Installfest may be scheduled later.
RSVPs will need to be made through EventBright and IS LIMITED TO 10 PEOPLE. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/good-ol-fashioned-linux-installfest-tickets-25709511842
You will need a computer with a minimum of 2gb memory for the virtual machine options.
