The Power of Emacs and PuppetDB

The more I work with Emacs the more I love it. We will start off with with Emacs tips and trick. I have a decent cheat sheet including things like rgrep and magit but please be ready to show off your own. Also, bring your laptop and we'll work with you to customize your setup.

Next up we have PuppetDB, a datastore for the popular open source devops tool called Puppet. Deepak Giridharagopal will take us through his project written in Clojure.

We'll do a bit of planning for a group project that will probably span at least a session at our next couple of meetups. Many of us spend a lot of time watching logs scroll by or the terminal output from some algorithm. We can all recognize patterns of when things are good and when things aren't working quite as planned. Is scrolling output the best way to convey what is happening? Using tools like Machine Learning, Overtone, and Quill can we find a better way to convey this information?

Special thanks to Cody ([masked]) at Tek System for sponsoring food and beer.

Also, special thanks to our new space sponsor Stoney's Full Steam Tavern. We'll be meeting upstairs by the projector.

Don't forget we have our own Github repo. Feel free to start projects, post code and send pull requests. If anyone hasn't been added to the organization please send me your Github id.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
