OFFER: Avocent DSR2161 12-port KVM switch

From: "Alex Smith (K4RNT)" 
------------------------------------------------------
I have an Avocent DSR2161 12-port KVM switch that has been laying out in my
carport for ages.

I don't need it, does anyone here want it?

I'm located near Fayetteville, so meeting up in Tullahoma or Winchester
would be necessary.

Let me know if interested.

Thanks!

Storage for VMs

From: Dan Lyke 
------------------------------------------------------
So the question came up in the SOC meeting this morning...

We've got a lot of VMs, and are going to be spinning up more of them.
Heck, we're tossing a lot of Vagrant around in git repos these days.

We need storage for those.

We're probably below SolidFire's current price range, but we don't
have infrastructure yet, and it isn't unreasonable to think that we
could be in future price ranges there.

I know nothing about the space.

Anyone want to educate me?

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?

Linux on Curriculum at Chattanooga College

From: Mike Harrison 
------------------------------------------------------

Partially thanks to Daniel Applegate, I got roped into
being on the advisory board at Chattanooga College (formerly ECPC).

Ok. Stop Laughing. 3+ months ago that would have been appropriate 
snickering. Things have changed.

Terry Parker took over a few months ago and has completely 
rebuilt a jobs skill focused IT program. That means it's mostly 
MS-centric, with apropos certifications (A+/CompTIA/Microsoft/Cisco..)
and focus as well as a two year Associates Degree. All new intructors, new 
computers, new labs.. an amazing transformation in about 3 months with 
more on the way.

It also includes Linux (Redhat RHCE focused) in the curriculum
as a major chunk of time! Mostly as a server it seems... but it's awesome
to see it blocked out in the curriculum formerly.

Which brings me to: NICE FACILITIES FOR MEETINGS/EVENTS

Terry would like to get more cross-pollination of the students
with local IT-centric groups, and offers some meeting/classroom
space as bait. There has been some talk about a pseudo-formal 
educational/presentational meeting or more (a half or full day)
this might be good for both groups. Of course, his interest is bringing in 
fresh perspectives, energy and people for his students as well as 
potential students or people wanting certifications.
We get a chance to share Linux/FOSS/etc..  and infect these soon to be 
corporate M$-Lackeys with a subversive strain of intelligence.


Terry is:  Terry.Parker@epbfi.....  (you can guess the rest)
if anyone wants to take him up on that offer and contact him about 
availability.

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.
