CactusConKids++

CactusConKids was even better this year. #CactusCon is a two day regional security conference in #Arizona with a couple thousand attendees.

The one day program added an escape room. To participate in the escape room kids had to first complete three stations: lock picking, arduino updates and a simple breadboard build.

Each of the three rooms in the escape challenge had a puzzle matching one of the three pre-requisite skill stations. Each room also had a hack to bypass the challenge. CactusCon is a hacker/security conference after all :).

SeaGL accepted my etckeeper talk

SeaGL accepted one of my talks again this year! This year I'll speak about Joey Hess' excellent etckeeper.

etckeeper makes it easy to keep system configuration files in revision control. In addition to normal revision control, etckeeper includes important features to track file ownership and permissions, work with package managers and track empty directories. etckeeper supports git, mercurial, bazaar and darcs revision control systems.

Tübix times two

Tübix has kindly accepted two of my proposals for the beginning of June conference in Tübingen, Germany.

In the morning I will be showing uMatrix, a privacy and security webextension browser add on. Via a simple interface uMatrix allows personal rules for website cookies, JavaScript, CSS, pictures and video.

In the afternoon I will be speaking on privacy and security via better control o
f account credentials and private data.

Both talks will be in German. The conference is in German and Schwäbisch.

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.
