Personal Online Security, Privacy, and Password Management for Ubucon at SCaLE 16x

My "Personal Online Security, Privacy, and Password Management" for Ubucon at SCaLE is tomorrow.

I'm looking forward to giving the presentation in conjunction with SCaLE. It was popular when I gave it at Linuxfest Northwest a couple years ago and the many times I've given it for local groups.

Last year Linux Journal used my article as the cover story. The article was based on the presentation I will be giving at Ubucon.

SCaLE16x talk moved to Saturday

My SCaLE 16x talk was moved to Saturday afternoon at 15:00. The talk is an example driven introduction to regular expressions.

"Regular Expressions: A guided tour"
Saturday, March 10th
15:00 - 16:00
Room 101

The talk was Sunday, but SCaLE asked me to switch with another presenter when a scheduling conflict arose.

regexen at SCaLE

SCaLE accepted my regular expressions talk for Sunday afternoon, Regular Expressions: A guided tour.

SCaLE is in Pasadena at the beginning of March.

It's a great, inexpensive, volunteer run Free Software conference.

My talk is an example driven introduction to regular expressions. It uses plain English to explain regular expression concepts, syntax and language. Common tools such as grep, sed and awk will provide conduits for demonstrating regular expressions.

bookending SeaGL

I'm bookending SeaGL's schedule this year. The first hour of presentations includes my SSH talk and the last hour includes my intermediate Bash talk.

SSH and the shell: go forth securely

Intermediate shell scripting: getting more bash for your $

SSH at SeaGL

SeaGL accepted my SSH talk, SSH and the shell: go forth securely.

For the second year in a row I will be heading to Seattle to speak at SeaGL.

I really enjoyed SeaGL last year ( and LinuxFest Northwest north of Seattle the year before ).

SeaGL is a great, intimate Free Software conference. It has much of the greatnesss of SCaLE presentations and hallway track sized so you can meet every attendee.

LinuxJournal Cover Story

Linux Journal chose my article about online privacy and security using a password manager as the cover story for this month's edition. You have to be a subscriber to read it right now.

The cover graphic to go with my article could be depicting chop sticks pulling a password out of a data stream, so it's also an article that can be accompanied by Sriracha.

etckeeper at SCaLE 15x

SCaLE accepted my etckeeper talk for SCaLE 15x.

As a system administrator I find it important to track changes in configuration files. Revision control systems have some fatal flaws for tracking /etc/. Luckily Joey Hess' excellent etckeeper wraps several revision control systems and adds the features we need to track our configuration files.

online privacy article for Linux Journal

Linux Journal will be publishing my article about Online Privacy and Security Using a Password Manager in the January edition ( pre-emptive URL ). I adapted my talk ( given at LinuxFest Northwest last year ) for print and concentrated more on the password manager aspect.

Thanks to Linux Journal for accepting my article and publishing it.

Someone Else's Problem night at PLUG

SEP is Someone Else's Problem, so for SEP 2016 PLUG is covering cloud, which is Someone Else's Computers.

We have two talks about dynamically deploying systems. One is an introduction to OpenStack. The other is an overview on deploying dynamic HA environments with HashiCorp's tools.
