Date: October 5, 2017 at 7 p.m.
Location: Algonquin (Woodroffe) P201
We are back at Algonquin this month Room P201
This month we will have two talks, one from Rob Echlin on GitLab services and one from Ian Gorman on PBX log data extraction.
There will be a one hour pre-meeting item from 17:30 to 18:30 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.
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.
Speaker: Robert Echlin
In some use cases, just for variety and flair
Rob has used git for 7+ years, and managed Git servers just as long. His experience with Bitbucket, and older VCSs informs this discussion . It looks like these two are the future of central repositories: others are already following.
We will look at workflows, features, ease of use, and choices.
Speaker: Ian Gorman
Ian will be giving a short talk and demo of some work he is doing for the National Capital Freenet's phone system.
Ian has a lot of experience at applying experience outside of its original box.
He has solved problems in Economics, Math, Computer Science, logic based controllers, bicycles, and human relations, generally mixing in information from at least one other discipline or computer language to make it work, or work better. His experience with computers includes Linux, Mac, and several server OSes from IBM, Sun, and others. He has worked with drivers, parsers, API design, business rules, Java garbage collectors, and some less exotic code that just needed to work.
