I'm getting this one out early as it's just confirmed and we expect it 
to be popular. It's a big deal getting these guys to speak to us when 
they're just about to go massive.

After the news that CentOS 8 will be end of life this year and 
transition to a rolling release model, Greg Kurtzer, original founder of 
the CentOS project announced Rocky Linux, a free, community-run drop in 
replacement for CentOS and RHEL.

Within days, a community sprang up to build the project infrastructure, 
and plan a sustainable model for the future. Following a whirlwind 3 
months, the first release candidate of Rocky Linux is expected by 31st 
March 2021 with an official release by mid-2021.

Greg and Director of Operations R. Leigh Hennig will be talking about 
the formation and status of Rocky Linux, answer questions that sysadmins 
might have about migrating a CentOS system to Rocky Linux and how users 
can contribute to the success of Rocky Linux.


Meeting starts at 19:30 GMT, Weds 28th April 2021.

The talk will start around 20:30.
