  • Graylog – Graylog is a powerful enterprise logging and query engine. Brandon Keep is going to give us a presentation that shows how you can get started with the application. If you are in need of a logging solution this presentation could give you some really great ideas.
  • Linux News – We will discuss and Linux related news items that strike a responsive cord with the membership.

Hope to see you all there!

The October RRLug meeting was held starting at 6:00pm on Thursday, October 12th. There was 15 in attendance and we had the following discussions:

  • GPD Pocket UMPC-Laptop – Joe Granneman brought in his new hardware acquisition, a GPD (GamePad Digital) 7-inch PC. The little computer fits in your pocket! Its a beautiful little machine that comes with 8GB RAM, 128GB ROM, and runs Linux!
  • Smoking in Docker – Steve Lembark demonstarated how to build a smoke-test engine using Docker images & volumes. He show is the several smoke-test engines from CPAN that can pull and compile packages on a variety of O/S and Perl platforms. His talk described the basics of smoke testing, one of CPAN’s engines, and building a hybrid container using an image and volume to provide a stable, maintainable smoke-test environment. The basic approach is applicable to any build-testing environment from nightly builds to project data validation.
  • Linux News – as usual we discussed many Linux related news items that struck a responsive cord with the membership.

    Had a nice turn out and some really interesting presentations.
