November Follow-up

Not too much of a follow-up really, as it wasn’t a technical talk night. The annual social is on Dec 14, 2015, click the calendar link in the widget to get more details. As this was really a post-LISA'15 talk, not much new was discussed. We did create a list of future topics, so that will get fleshed out over the next little while. I’ve got until early January to get a talk together and an embarrassing richness of topics, so there will be a talk on a requested topic, I just need to pick one.

Photos from LISA'15

I think this may be the lowest number of photos I’ve taken during a LISA conference where I’ve had a camera yet. I should start organizing them when I take them.

Post October Followup

I’m sitting in my hotel room after the initial get together at LISA15. Since I’m a little tired and the tutorials start tomorrow morning, I decided to take a quiet evening and catch up on a few things. One of those being the followup to last month’s meeting. While we still had a smaller crowd, the topic was interesting, at least to me. I finally got around to doing a basic talk on docker.

Post September Follow-up

We had more people than I expected tonight, so that was a plus. While it was a very informal evening and not on topic all evening, we did manage to get a couple of people back on track with GPG. Don’t forget to exchange public keys and sign them and send them back. The more signatures, the more trusted the GPG key. The site I mentioned for random password generation is: http://world.

August Followup

It was a small turnout tonight, probably something to do with work schedules, deliverables, vacations and Brazilian style rain. The good news is that due to a laptop issue and a spate of excess work, I had not managed to get my docker talk together, so I recycled a talk I had done for OCLUG earlier this year. The talk was on static site generation and it featured a demo that used digital ocean droplets (docker like instances) for the source machine representing a laptop or desktop and the target web server.
