disroot.org has caught attention of the free software world with it’s simple but innovative setup offering a variety of services using LDAP - one account for all services and has emerged as a replacement for the the monopolistic google services. College of Engineering Pune (COEP, www.coep.org.in) has been using a setup similar to the disroot for it’s Wiki, Moodle, Proxy, Desktops, Nextcloud, FOSS server services. The talk will focus on basic concepts of LDAP, how to setup LDAP and configure various services for an academic institute. The talk will primarily be a demonstration of a technology stack integrated together to serve needs of an academic institute. Interested attendees can engage in an practical hands on session later to do a similar setup with their hardware.
