Big Data LA was a success in the face of Adversity. Made it to the event via public trasport when the car blew up (no, the car didnt start yet another fire in California). Thanks to +Joey Dye +Romy Meyerson +Alan Williams and his sister Allysa for helping with the booth. Winning best community booth at +Big Data Los Angeles was amazing. Hopefully we can do it agian for +So Cal Code Camp.

It looks like we might be doing another openSUSE miniSummit at SCaLE next year. We are going to need some volunteers to make it a reality. Is anyone here interested in helping?

Help day of the event(likely a day or two before the expo hall opens):
+ help with setup and cleanup
+ keep the track on track - help keep on schedule, answering questions and other general needs (likely lots of running around)
+ maintain swag table - keep it full and looking good!
+ set up and maintain game area. Play and interact with people. Help with openSUSE questions and maybe even some installs. (embody"have a lot of fun", no matter what)
+ Social media coverage using the SoCalSUSE twitter, and instagram accounts along with promotion on Facebook, G+ (here), and in the Fediverse.

Leading up to the event:
+ give a talk
+ help us find people to give talks
+ miniSummit logo design/design ideas
+ New booth banner design
+ help us set decide on the talk schedule including break spacing
+ help us find volunteers to help work the miniSummit and the SCaLE booth
+ decide on games and fun things to engage the community at the show
+ demo machine setup (fresh TW and Leap installs to show at the booth and in game room)

Well there was a Minor freakout today.  Turns out there is a new SSL vulnerability currently being called DROWN.  or as i like to call it from now on 人人人ヾ( ;×o×)〃 人人人

So a couple of Suse related things including a shout out to +Bryan Lunduke and +Venn Stone  for alerting me to this. So to calm people down or freak them out some more here are a list of links that should help people out in understanding DROWN or 人人人ヾ( ;×o×)〃 人人人 as i like to visualize it.

First. 13.1 and 13.2 are not Vulnerable as both are shipped with the no-ssl2 enabled.

SLE patches are out and soon should be arriving to Leap and Tumbleweed.

OpenSSL guide to DROWN

Main page with information about DROWN from the researchers of the DROWN attack.
