July Meeting: Rescheduled: Block box testing and short dashing presentation

Date: July 7, 2016 at 7 p.m.
Location: Algonquin College (Woodroffe Campus), room T327

Due to the projector issues, we are doing the talks that did not happen last month

Tonight we will have two presentations, the one on black box recorders and one on the dashing dashboard.

Pre-meeting:

There will be a one hour pre-meeting item from 18:00 to 19:00 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 will be a social event at one of the nearby pubs or restaurants. A short discussion and vote as to location will be taken then.

GPG Keysigning:

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.

Black Box Pi

Raspberry Pi as a "Black Box" Tester

Speaker: Ian Gorman

It sits on an Ethernet connection and makes hourly downloads to measure speed.

When you get it back, you attach a keyboard, monitor and mouse, and use R to produce a summary report and some graphs.

A short talk on dashing

Speaker: Scott Murphy

In the past, we made a number of attempts to get one of the Shopify people responsible for dashing to give a talk on their framework. That never worked out, so to make up for it, I'll give a brief talk on dashing based off of an existing tutorial. I also have a demo dashboard to show after we go over the basics, so you might get ideas.

July Meeting: LITW 2016

Date: July 17, 2016 at 7 p.m.
Location: Strathcona Park Ottawa

This year LITW will be held at Strathcona Park on Sunday July 17 @ 13:00 (1:00pm) rain or shine.

This is a casual, family oriented event. Bring kids, significant others, devices, laptops, battery operated projects, autonomous vehicle, drone, camera or whatever suits your fancy. Bring some food to share and a fun attitude. I’ve been told the squirrels are friendly.

The board will bring a cooler of pop/juice/water, some paper plates, utensils, paper towels and anything else we think would be a good idea.

If you are planning on attending, please RSVP to the board with a count of how many people you are bringing so we have an idea as to how much to bring.

Looking forward to another successful LITW and we will see you there!
