Not really on bitcoin, per se, but on alt coins which you can exchange for bitcoin. At this junction, bitcoin requires too much juice and equipment to really generate any worthwhile profit. I would be happy to cover what it takes to mine on a Pi and offer some background experience, links, code, etc. and answer questions that I can.
I plan to cover using my knowledge of the crypto coin mining that is available. But, mostly I will cover my own experience in using the Pi as a control base for mining. This spans about 5 years. As you may know, most mining operations require lots of computing power, not found on the Pi, but in equipment controlled by the Pi software. I will also discuss the Pi software and demo a working version - sort of the guts of what is needed.
Also I can make available a list of links to related sites that deal with mining or access which will help anyone that is interested in investing in coin acquisition.
To Be Rescheduled: ( PREVIOUSLY SCHEDULED, BUT NOT DONE ) CEPH Distributed Network File System by Michael Carrington of SUSE
The Saint Louis MO, STL Linux Users Group (STLLUG) meets monthly to learn and talk about Linux. This GNU/Linux Users Group usually holds its meetings on the third Thursday of every month. Meetings are free, public and open to all.
We will continue with our great restaurant location. You can come early, or not; but, we should all wait to order food and drink at the same time.
We start gathering by 6:30PM and at 6:45PM we start with introductions, announcements, current events of interest, and a general CALL FOR HELP segment. Then we will go into the presentation of our main topic, sometime around or after 7:00PM.
STLLUG is loosely affiliated with the St. Louis Unix Users Group (SLUUG), as one of its Special Interest Groups (SIG). Under SLUUG care web page support is provided. Individual membership dues, fees or other charges are NOT required. These meetings are free, public and open to all.
