Welcome to the Seattle Unix Group Home Page
Welcome to the web site for the Seattle Unix Users Group, also called slug or seaslug.
We have moved this site to one using Zope and Plone which offers several major advantages:
- Distributed Responsibility for the Site, allowing more than one person to review and approve postings, meeting announcements, etc. For example, all members of the Board of Directors could have ``Editor'' roles which would allow them to publish articles posted by members, meeting announcements, links to other sites, etc.
- Members can ``join'' the site which could allow individual members to put up their own information including such things as resumes without assistance from a webmaster.
- Membership Participation which could allow them more of a voice in what the group does.
- Search Capabilities are automatically available making it easier to find things on the site.
- Related Items based on key words in documents, links, and files can make it easier to find other things relating to the current link.
- Easy Page Creation using Plone's ``structured text'' which allows people to create reasonable web pages without having to know any HTML (this page is done using structured text).
The Seattle Unix Users Group is an organization of Unix systems administrators, programmers and users. The purpose of the organization is to foster knowledge about the Unix operating system and related software (e.g., GNU/Linux, Java, etc.). The group has been meeting continuously since its founding in May 1984. In January 1994 one of our board members participated in the formation of the Greater Seattle Linux Users Group in March 1998 one of our board members founded the Seattle Perl Users Group
