Bill Lindley: Control The World (or whatever you want) With Linux and a Raspberry Pi

We will see how a $35 Raspberry Pi (or even the $9 version), a breadboard and a bit of circuitry connected to the SPI and I2C buses can control pretty much anything: a thermostat; a "self driving" model car; or a clock-radio that also displays software build progress and your corporate network uptime status.

Mr. Lindley has been in the computer industry since he sold his first program (a printer driver for Heathkit HDOS) in 1980. He has used system from the earliest 8-bit microprocessors, through the PDP-11 and VAX, up to IBM mainframes, and has managed to write programs that did not crash on most of them. Mr. Lindley has been a GNU/Linux user since 1992 and has been free of proprietary software since 2001. Most recently he has been pleased to be an adjunct professor at Mesa Community College.

Rajendran Rathinasabapathy: In the crossroads of Agility, Microservices and Cloud computing

Being a project manager for a while evolving along with the evolution in the IT landscape of agility, microservices and cloud computer, I see a pattern in the painful ordeal teams go through, especially when collaboration is needed more than ever to build systems. The topic is very relevant when highly individualistic opensource programmers work together. In this presentation, as the subject is vast, I layout a list of critical blind spots and pitfalls the teams can avoid while designing and developing larger applications.

Working in IT for the past 20 years from being a developer to a portfolio manager. Currently involved in strategizing CI/CD for a sub-domain in info security. with varied tech stacks. I am a proponent of microservices and also a scrum master. In my free time, I learn to make digital an analogue circuits. I teach programming and robotics to kids and I am learning Jiu-Jitsu :-)
