PLUG July East Valley Meeting Wrapup

Thursday's PLUG meeting for July went well. We had a large crowd for mid-summer including lots of new faces.

Announcements included an opening for teaching electronics at a local community college. The department head showed up, so I handed it over to him for descriptions of the classes and what they need. He's adamant about a GNU/Linux infrastructure being vital to the success of the program and has hired 4 previous instructors from PLUG.

We also had someone return after many years living elsewhere. It was good to catch up some, and I look forward to longer conversations in the near future.

First up I gave a new talk about federated social network Mastodon. I will follow up with a talk on ActivityPub in the Fall.

Next, I gave my uMatrix talk, this time in English.

Next month Ed will give a talk on Technical Debt.

Tuesday is a resume review night at 18:00, followed by this month's Stammtisch at it's normal time of 19:00.

Announcement on Mastodon.

Thursday is PLUG's next security class. This month Aaron will be giving us an "Introduction to Shodan"

Some upcoming Valley events include DevOpsDays Phoenix and CactusCon.

The cfp for DevOpsDay Phoenix is still open. One of the DOD Phx organizers gave us an update, though she isn't participating as much this year due to time constraints from a new job.

SeaGL's cfp for the November conference in Seattle is open as well. SeaGL has office hours at noon on Thursday's in July to help prospective speakers with their proposals.
