Welcome

 

TONIGHT
 

We'll have 2 presentation on Thursday, "Intermediate shell scripting: getting more bash for your $" and "SSH and the shell-go forth securely", both from der.hans

 

der.hans: Intermediate shell scripting: getting more bash for your $

 

Description:
Want to take your shell scripting to the next level? Interested in adding string manipulation and arrays to your arsenal? In shell math?

Shell still has the best system integration for stringing together our favorite command line tools such as ls, grep and sed. Better yet is doing some of that work in the shell without reaching for a forked program, especially inside loops. This presentation will cover intermediate scripting techniques and useful command line tips.

After attending this session, audience members will understand string operators, in shell math, indexed arrays and associative arrays. They will also be familiar with regular expressions, globbing and differences between the two. Finally, attendees will be familiar with useful builtin variables.

 

der.hans: SSH and the shell-go forth securely

Description:
SSH is the go to tool for sysadmins and developers for interactive connections to remote machines. It creates secure, encrypted connections between computers, even across hostile networks. Unless you accept keys without verification (DON'T DO THAT!!!).

SSH can also create tunnels for encapsulating other connections, including other protocols and data. Sysadmins can bridge protocols across networks for ease of access such as a one-off data sync. Devs can present the dev database on their desktop to ease use of graphical development tools.

After attending this session, audience members will be able to create a local tunnel from client to server, a remote tunnel from server to client, and do simple analysis of local vs remote evaluation of a command. Attendees will be able to use tunnels for SSH or sample other protocols (MySQL and HTTP), and tunneling via a third party system. They will also be familiar with dynamic SOCKS proxies and using SSH to tunnel graphical applications. Finally, attendees will also learn SSH configuration and command line tips for convenience of use, including using forced command to restrict an SSH key to one purpose.

 

Biography:
der.hans is a technology and entrepreneurial veteran. Roles have included director of engineering, engineering manager, IS manager, system administrator, community college instructor, developer and DBA.

In his free time, der.hans endeavors to help build community through user group and conference leadership. He is chairman of the Phoenix Linux User Group (PLUG), BoF organizer for the Southern California Linux Expo (SCaLE) and founder of the Free Software Stammtisch.

He presents regularly at large community-led conferences (SCaLE, SeaGL, LFNW) and many local groups.

TONIGHT

 

Aaron Jones: Introduction To Holiday Safety

Description:
Introduction To Holiday Safety is a two hour course focused on preparing for the holiday rush. While the holidays are a great time to shop, eat, and have fun, they are also a popular time for criminals who will be looking for ways to enrich themselves illegally. We will be discussing some of the tools and tactics used such as phishing, credit card skimming, and purse snatching and some of the things you can do to protect yourself. This class is targeted towards the general public and does not require any experience in cyber security.

Hello. My name is Mike and I like Free and Open-Source Software (FOSS). I'm attempting to find a group of people who are like minded. Presently, I'm looking for people who would be interested in socializing but in the future I plan on trying to hold computer-club meetings. The purpose of these meetings is both to be social and to try to teach about open source software. I know there is a computer club here in the Verde Valley but they charge for membership. We will meet at coffee shops and other such places so, as Linux is free, the club will be as well. A third thing I would like to do is to periodically have, what they call in Phoenix, installfests. Installfests are events where people, who wish to test FOSS gather together to install a FOSS operating system on their computers (usually as a dual-boot so as to preserve their windows installation). Please, contact me and we'll get together :) Name of the group? Why of course.... it is VVOSSS. (pronounced 'Voss')
