free devlab

From: gary hasty 
------------------------------------------------------
FYI, if anyone's thinking about coming down for the AT&T hackathon this
weekend we're also having a devlab session during the day at the foundry:

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/devlab-by-att-atlanta-speech-in-app-messaging-advertising-apis-and-appcelerator-workshop-registration-10516496123


*Free one-day workshop on the AT&T Speech, In-App Messaging, Advertising
APIs, and Appcelerator*

Are you a *mobile application developer* with an interest in adding *voice
commands*or text-to-voice translation to your app?  Or sending *text
messages* from inside your application?  Or earning *advertising revenues*?
Join the AT&T Developer Program for a one-day workshop on the *AT&T Speech,*
 *In-App Messaging* (including SMS and MMS)*,*and* Advertising APIs*.  This
will be a day of learning and hands-on coding ("lab time").  Bring your
laptops (PC or Mac) and leave with our APIs working from your own AT&T
Developer Program account. The event will close with a session by Pratik
Patel, CTO of Triplingo and evangelist for Appcelerator, on how to leverage
Appcelerator to complete your app.

The workshop will be taught by AT&T and Appcelerator subject matter
experts, and AT&T Developer Program staff.  This also is a great
opportunity to network with AT&T and your fellow mobile developers. We will
be using Postman and cURL for the lab exercises.

The event is free and lunch is provided.  If you are an app developer
working independently or with a company planning or already producing
mobile applications then this is the event for you. Space is limited so
register now.

Find out how carrier APIs from the AT&T Developer Program can benefit you
and your app strategy. *We look forward to meeting you!*

OT bugs and code quality

From: Christopher Rimondi 
------------------------------------------------------
For those of you are on/lead teams of developers or engineers what do you
do keep everyone focused on reducing bugs and thinking through the impact
of changes? I get there is a lot that can be done with unit and integration
testing and formal QA. However, what I am asking centers more on keeping
quality front and center in the team's mindset.

There is probably no easy answer to this but, how do you separate bugs that
are caused from "moving fast/meeting deadlines" versus we probably should
have caught this one?

Went to the DC423.org meeting last night, saw an interesting presentation 
by  Stephen Hilt about a "leach" embedded controller he had built..
learned about "dronecell" a neat little GSM/GPRS module..added to a 
Raspberry Pi made an interesting useful remote device. Very small.

And Dr. D. kept playing with a nice little micro quadcopter... which I 
want to know which make/model that was because I need a cat tormenting

Drupal Camp Chattanooga - Sat Nov 9th 2013

From: Lee Walker 
------------------------------------------------------
www.drupalcampchattanooga.com

I'm running our very own Drupal Camp this year at Chattanooga State.
The beginners track is "Drupal in a Day" - included in the ticket
price - which will teach you to site build with Drupal (no coding
skills necessary) in a day. All you need is a laptop. We'll teach you
to build a website.
Interested in getting (younger) coders into web tech? This is a good
class to take.
Other tracks include theming, and development, plus some business sessions.

$25 a ticket. Includes lunch and a t-shirt.

This is a community run event (i.e. not for profit), and needs the
tech scene support.

The Drupal community is one of the largest and friendliest open source
communities out there. Come join us.


I'm still trying to raise sponsorship (to pay for the camp). So if
anyone knows any local businesses who may be interested in sponsoring
please send them my way, or send them this link
https://www.drupalcampchattanooga.com/become-sponsor
I have tiers ranging from $200 to $500.

Each attendee can also add an optional personal sponsorship of $20 to
help if they are feeling the open source vibe.

Incidentally, in the spirit of open source, I'll be publishing all the
information on where the money came from and what we spent it on.

Hope to see you all there.

Chugalunch Monday October 7

From: James Nylen 
------------------------------------------------------
I'm hereby calling a Chugalunch at The Terminal, #6 14th St, Chattanooga,
TN, USA on Monday, October 7, 2013 at noon local time.

If that's not clear enough for anyone... then you had better come because
you are probably a space alien or a time traveler and that means we're the
people you want to talk to.

I'll be at the outside tables, weather and availability permitting.

Good Lunch

Good Lunch, although James got very distracted by the scenery
and is still recovering from a wild weekend it seems.

and I learned about Redis: redis.io  and that Wil has built his own rules 
engine.

Soliciting Location Suggestions for next Chugalug Meetup

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
As many of you recall, we had a Chugalug meetup back in June that I had
helped plan, but then had to bail at the very last minute and miss the
meeting (which I was disappointed about).

That was hosted on the 4th Floor of the Library.

I tried a couple months ago to nail down another date for hosting a similar
event, but that failed miserably due to a number of reasons.

I want to try doing it again, soon, but we will likely be looking into
doing it at a different venue (also for multiple reasons).

I'm still willing to help take a lead role in planning and organizing the
event / meetup / lining up speakers, but if folks wanted to help, I'd
welcome the help.

The main point of this email is to solicit suggestions for a possible venue
(besides the 4th Floor) for a similar type of event - a half-day meeting of
workshops (possibly break-out style), hardware swap, etc...

The goal is to maybe even turn this into a regular occurrence (Quarterly?),
and the ultimate goal is to attempt a Chattanooga Technology Conference in
the next year or two that many of you will recall was discussed about very
early this year.

Anyone have space we could use for a half-day meetup, and/or have
suggestions for such a space? A caveat is "free" would be very, very nice
(and almost mandatory).

Also, contact me if you want to help with the next meetup and/or help with
the longer-term brainstorming and planning for an actual (well
though-through, well planned, well executed) conference.

Aaron called a Chugalunch but did not mention the place and time.

How about outside at Nikki's by the Red Bank Tunnel at 1pm. ?

They only take cash, good decent burgers cheap.. and their onion rings are awesome!

Forum vs Listserv

From: Mike Harrison

On Mon, 16 Sep 2013, Mike Robinson wrote:

Been nice knowing you... but I hope you stay.

Chugalug has been active since 1999. It's evolved a little since then,
and will evolve more over time. "Listserv" suck, "WebForums" suck..
both have different reasons they are each superior and inferior.
Those reasons are often different for different people.

I'll admit the recent foray into PGP/GPG and signatures has added noise to 
the list, but it is part of the evolutionary process of both the list and 
the technologies being used. The biggest factor is the people involved and 
their behaviors.

Chugalug has existed for 14+ years under my personal benevolence as an 
experiment in communal anarchy and community as much as it is a "LUG".
Its flavor dates back to the hobbies (and businesses) of several of the 
founding members that ran Bulletin Board Systems (BBS's) including myself.

If the community decries posting PGP/GPG sigs as antisocial behavior,
the more socially aware members MIGHT not post them to the list.
They might, just because they can. I'd like to let the community work that 
out over time.

My personal gripe of top posters that don't trim is a common one
for many of my more e-mail list savvy generation. While I don't like
PGP Signatures that are invasive in the body of the email compared to MIME 
attachments, I understand the tools being used and their reasons. I'd 
rather see a post from Dave or Dan with such "noise" than not have them 
post. I swap back and forth from using PINE and Apple Mail, I usually see 
-everything- in PINE and only the relevant part in Apple Mail. Maybe your 
choice or configuration of e-mail interface is part of the issue?

===Anyway, back on topic:======

A web forum.

0.  I won't host any commonly available web forum (Simple Machines Forum, 
PhpBB, etc.. ) on my personal server. I have in the past and they are so 
full of exploits and management overhead as to be not something I want to 
deal with. Anything with session/cookie based auth is a pain. Once upon 
a time I hacked SMF to use Basic Auth.. worth using.

1.  If anyone wants to set one up and host it and manage it, I'd happily 
point some DNS hostname's to it.. join the fray, explore how it worked 
with the community.

2. My personal experience with Web Forums is the tend to race to the 
bottom. The listserv format is the only barrier to being a member of 
Chugalug, and posting/conversing to 250+ people, it's just enough of a 
technical barrier to be desirable.

3.  Viva la Revolution! If the community organizes a revolt with enough 
long term commitment to be credible, I'll graciously concede. I'm a member 
of some other "LUGS" that die and rebirth every few years, fighting over
control, format, agenda, mission, checkbook, 501c3 status, meeting 
locations...

======Just saw the post about: reddit  http://www.reddit.com/r/chugalug/

Awesome. Works for me.. We could even setup a cross-posting mechanism....
a redirect.. All things are possible.

I've also seen Linked In Forums, IRC chats..  All good. Welcome to 
socially responsible anarchy. This is a "Society of Independant People"
and you can be an active force in it.

noogaJS - Chattanooga JavaScript Community

From: Andrew Pierce 
------------------------------------------------------
If you were at Code & Creativity (I know Mike H. was) or DevLink this week,
you may have heard about a new User Group starting up here focused on
JavaScript. Brian Hooper and I are starting this group up and I wanted to
extend an invitation to everyone here on CHUGALUG.

Love it or hate it, JavaScript is hot. And that's a huge understatement. If
you're doing web development, you're probably dealing with some JavaScript
no matter what's on your back end, PHP, Ruby, C# (yuck), or whatever. We
want to help bring JavaScript developers together for learning, networking,
and eating lots of pizza.

We have speakers lined up for the rest of the year and we really hope to
see you there. Our web site is http://noogajs.org and you can follow us on
Twitter at http://twitter.com/noogajs.

The first meeting will be at Unum on September 24, 2013. Pizzas (and you)
should show up at 5:30pm and the speaker, Jim Cowart, will begin his
presentation at 6:00.

Beginning in October, we will be moving the meetings over to the 4th Floor
of the downtown library where Dan Eveland and company are doing some
awesome things.

The plan is for the meetings to be held the 4th Tuesday of every month with
the exception of November and December when we'll back them up a week due
to the holidays.

I'd really love to see as many as can make it at the meetings and
participating. If you'd like to present, we are working on filling the 2014
calendar so you've got time to get something together.

Thanks!
Andrew
