January Meeting: SSD vs. Spinning Rust and discussion

Date: January 11, 2018 at 7 p.m.
Location: To be determined

We will be at Algonquin this month.

The room will be T304

This month we will have a single talk from Renato Carrara on SSD vs HDD. This will likely generate some discussion, so we will leave the entire session for it.


There will be a one hour pre-meeting item from 18:00 to 19:00 for people who are new to Linux, have general questions, or wish to help out with people who are just getting started.

After Meeting Social:

After the meeting, there typically will be a social event at one of the nearby pubs or restaurants. A short discussion and vote as to location will be taken at the end of the talks.

GPG Keysigning:

After the main talk and possibly the BoF, there will be the opportunity for a GPG key signing. This is a monthly offering, just look for Scott after the talk and we can go from there. Bring some kind of photo ID and some keyslips if you expect people to sign your key.If you need some method of creating pages of keyslips, there is an online slip generator available.


SSD/HDD: Why SSD will never overtake the HDD

Speaker: Renato Carrara

Renato Carrara will give a talk on why SSDs are not taking over spinning hard disks, ever. This will be part presentation, part discussion, so questions and commentary are expected and even encouraged.

About the Speaker

Renato has enjoyed a varied career in the high tech industry, holding roles such as SysAdmin, ASIC design support, project management and managing memories for large ASIC designs. As an expatriate Brazilian, he brings an interesting perspective to Canadian winters.
