With in mind we will bring you 3 presentations this month: Intro to OpenStack, Dynamic HA Deployments with HashiCorp Tools and Eddystone Bluetooth Beacons Intro
Billy Olsen: Intro to OpenStack
Description: Let's take a stroll through the OpenStack Zoo and visit what it is, how its put together, and how it can be used to provide services. We'll explore the core components, some of the non-core components, and what the big tent is.
We'll look at some of the ways that OpenStack can be deployed and managed and how to contribute to the world of OpenStack.
Bio: Billy discovered Linux during his days in college, where he ran Redhat, SuSE, Debian, Mandrake, Gentoo, Lindows, and some other obscure Linux distributions (and even some *nix systems). Having used Linux as his main system for years, he eventually got the opportunity to work with this thing called OpenStack which he developed a pure love/hate relationship with. Since then, he's switched companies to make sure he can focus on working on OpenStack, clouds, and FOSS.
When he is not on the computer, he enjoys spending time with his family - which involves lots and lots of Legos and model rockets.
Anthony Kosednar: Dynamic HA Deployments with HashiCorp Tools
Description: An overview of HashiCorp's opensource tool set and how to get started on using it yourself.
- Image Creation
- Deployments (Computing, Infrastructure, & Storage
- Cluster Management
- Secret/Credentials/PKI Management
Bio: Anthony Kosednar is an Information Security Engineer with a background in Aerospace. By day he helps secure corporations and large events (such as Super Bowl XLIX). By night, he puts on the cape of software architect for the Arizona Cyber Warfare Range. Through the darkness of night he helps program the systems that operate the range.
Ed Nicholson: Eddystone Bluetooth Beacons Intro
Description: A brief introduction to and demonstration of BLE Beacons based on the open (!free) Eddystone protocols from Google. While many IoT and Beacon vendors provide proprietary management portals, there is a free (BSD-3) management application in development in addition to libraries and beacon scanners.
Bio: I have been involved with Free Software for some time, and am
most interested in how people, organizations and populations use, create and experience information. Recently, I am enjoying The Prescott National Forest as my "personal office" and The Valley of The Sun as a home away from home. Personal systems run either Fedora, CoreOS, Android or OpenBSD
The meeting starts at 7pm
We will go for food to BJs at the Chandler Fashion Center Mall after the meeting so we can chat with each other comfortably. Please feel free to join us. Please come even if you aren't hungry, the food is not mandatory.
