Hey CHSTech!

Working on a crazy concept to re-think application architecture, based on turning the database inside out, full stack flux, and micro-services.  
If anyone is interested, I would love to get some feedback on a new concept we are working on, it is still early stages and very much in flux.  If you would like to collaborate on this mad science, you are welcome!  I would love to share at the next CHUUG - If you have 15 minutes check out this short screen cast - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INP1uuOYU3E&feature=youtu.be

Github project here:  -> https://github.com/twilson63/palmettoflow 


Let me know, what you think, please have an open mind because it does break current best practices.  Have a great weekend!

Does anyone know of a person or group that organizes user test groups in Charleston?  My California based co-workers would like to come here to interview people who may fit our demographic.  They would like to hire somebody to organize a few days worth of user trials including finding potential candidates.  Organizer and testers would be paid.  Anyone know of a group or somebody in Charleston that does this??

Hi, has anybody been trying Dart?  I'd be interested to hear your experiences (either experimental or in production).

It's a GO hackathon. In case anyone is interested, the Makelab guys are hosting an event for it.

http://www.meetup.com/Makelab-Charleston/events/219785827/
How does the Gopher Gala work? Participants will break up into teams of 1-4 people before the Gala begins, and then over the course of a 48-hour period will produce a standalone application. There are no rules on what you can make - however, the critical part of your app must be written in Go.

Hey folks!  I hope everyone is doing well and having a great post-Thanksgiving week so far!

So I have a random question... I am working on a project and could use someone with some graphics programming experience; this community seems to have an amazing pool of talent and I wanted reach out to see if anyone would be interested.   I can give you some more specifics if so, but in general we are looking for someone who's familiar with linux on embedded systems and is comfortable with C, QT, or OpenCV.

Please shoot me a message if you'd like to hear more.

Thanks so much!

Charleston ISSA (computer security talking shop) are looking for lightning talks for January and February.  Anybody been to one of these?  They good?

yeah, the ISSA has some good talks on a fairly wide range of security topics. The meetings tend to be understandable for people who aren't well-versed in the topic while engaging the many skilled & experienced nerds in attendance. Unfortunately, they often meet the same nights that the ChUUG meets.

related: they are putting on an 'intro to red teaming with metasploit' course in a little over a week – http://www.charlestonissa.org/training-events/

About this community

This group allows its attendees to pitch technical topics they will either speak on, or want to hear about. While it is limited to tech, there is nothing within that field that is off-limits. So, on the 4th(or 3rd if the month has no 4th, just follow the community :-) Thursday of the month, come dine/drink with us and discuss technical things!

I wanted to mention I just stood up Deis, a private PaaS platform based on Docker and CoreOS. Looks pretty nice if your team wants a private Heroku style deployment experience. The best part to me is it runs on top of CoreOS, so if I decide Deis isn't right, I don't have to totally replace everything. The idea is you deploy with "git push deis master" and it compiles your code into a Docker container, then launches it with Fleet (standard part of CoreOS). (Thanks for the tip +Tom Wilson​).

Yeah I would be willing to do that if somebody arranges a chuug meeting. Hit me up for dates. In general I followed the instructions on the Deis site to deploy on Google Compute Engine (IaaS)

Hack Night at The Iron Yard Charleston
Come one, come all to Hack Night! Hack night is a gathering of programmers, designers, hardware hackers, and other tech minded creators. We're open to all who are wanting to make something, contribute to open source, or need help with a project. Charleston has a great tech community with a lot of focused gatherings on learning code and sharing ideas or new technologies, but there's not really a regular meetup for hacking on some code or collabora...

Folks here might be interested in this training.  There is a small fee but I saw Paul Burbage at Barcamp and he did a great presentation on the "bash bug" vulnerability.  http://www.eventbrite.com/e/how-i-pwned-your-website-tickets-15471418429
“Capturing and Dissecting Content Management System Attacks with Honeypots” We will examine the nature of these vulnerabilities and recreate them for exploitation in a lab environment. You will learn how to set up a safe lab environment for attacking with some of the latest public web application exploits, and be challenged with a Capture the Flag (CTF) event at the end of the class.

Who in the Charleston area is doing native Android and/or iOS development?  Looking for individuals and companies that I can badger with questions and maybe work with.

Mike, I've been asking around and haven't had much luck finding talent locally doing native app development.  Local shops that I have talked to are farming the work out to contractors because of the lack of talent.  I'm doing the same.  It's such a shame because in Silicon Valley, everyone wants to "go mobile".

Has anyone else noticed that all traffic from Chs for Comcast customers gets routed through Jacksonville and then Marietta?  This adds a minimum of 40ms latency to any connection and it's giving me the itchings.

Is anyone getting ready to take the Puppet certification exam?  Mine is in 4 weeks.  I attended PuppetConf and 2 DevOps confs, and I'm studying and coding everything I can get my hands on.  I could use a study buddy.  Please and thank you...

Thank you, Ted!  I've done Chef Beginner and Intermediate Training, but no formal Puppet training.  I thought I would have outgrown my test anxiety by now  :)

Those of you who saw my rambling talk on Linux dentry caches and kernel debugging with Systemtap will know what I'm talking about. Just going to leave this here for your amusement:

Please support Uber by attending the 1st court appearance of an Uber driver cited for operating without a permit at the airport. Court date is December 4th at 2:00 PM at the court house just off Leads Ave.

It makes me uncomfortable seeing anyone recommend supporting a business for operating without a license. +Taft Navarro, why would this be a good thing?

I use Uber (and other online dispatch services) often and have a fairly strong grasp of livery service regulations, but this seems like an example of a driver doing something they clearly aren't supposed to be doing. Do you have a link to more backstory on this specific situation? The way your post reads, it sounds like you're asking me to support an independent contractor for violating local regulations, rather than supporting Uber for increasing competition in the Charleston taxi and sedan market.
