Open Source Open Mic: The Threequel

  • Nov 5, 2015 · 5:30 PM
  • DRW

Hi everyone!

Joe and Matt would be delighted if you could join us for an evening of most splendid lightning talks to share, learn and collaborate about all things developery, at our third Open Source, Open Mic event.

This is an event by developers, for developers (about stuff developers are interested in)! Come join us and share your experiences using, and hacking on Open Source software.

Here's how it works:

• Sign up! (It's freeeee!)

• Turn up! (We have free beer, soda, pizza and cupcakes)

• Meet interesting developers from a diverse set of backgrounds

• Enjoy a whole bunch of 5 minute lightning talks

• Participate by doing your own lightning talk (if you like)

• Retire to a nearby cocktail bar

So, what kind of talks to expect? Well, pretty much anything related to using open source software, such as web development, user experience, building big data infrastructure, new languages, old languages, tools, performance, operating systems, home automation, programming for social good, etc.

If you want to talk about something, please let us know when signing up.

See you there!

    Here's the slide for "Linux port sharding":

    And example code (Ruby and Python) including a Docker container if you're not running Linux 3.9:

    • Joe W.

      If you use Docker on a Mac or Windows it includes a bootstrapping Linux VM which has the correct kernel. This was how I did the demo

    • Rob H.

      Ah, I only thought of it from the standpoint of being on a distro without a 3.9 kernel. That makes sense now!

    I can talk about newest Open Source Hardware board that I've been working with: Next Thing Co's C.H.I.P. I presented it as my hackerspace recently, so I could do a lightning version of that:

    I really admire Next Thing Co's philosophy to get upstream support for C.H.I.P. in the mainline Linux kernel. Far too many ARM Linux devices end up in stuck in some old vendor tree.

    The Elm language site is here:

    And here's the code I demoed, plus more:

    If you're looking over the code and are curious about something, feel free to reach out and ask me!

    Hello OS:OM members... I'm gonna do a lightning talk but I need your help picking a topic.

    Here are some things I'd like to share with you:


    1. HTTP 2 has a hidden super power. This. Changes. Everything. (Well some things)

    2. JavaScript in 2015 - the language has evolved. The fun bits!

    3. Exciting new web standards coming to a browser near you in 2016

    4. The beauty, elegance and simplicity of GNU Make. It's not just for C

    5. A developer's introduction to interacting with physical things in the real world. From software to hardware

    6. This one weird Linux kernel trick will change the way you write server apps (Ruby, Python and Go edition)

    7. Building a streaming WebSocket backend, the UNIX way. In any language. From scratch. L-I-V-E

    8. Writing a mini-language. Intro to grammars and lexers and parsers oh my!


    So, what do you think? Reply with which topic you'd like to learn about.

    Hulloooo everyone! Excited about tonight's meetup! Some very interesting talks planned it seems! I'll be doing one on the fastest way to search inside a gzipped file...

    A quick reminder...if you're coming tonight and you don't use your full name in your Meetup profile, can you PM me with your real name so I can make sure the security robots don't annihilate you with their bureaucracy beams?

    Taaaaaaaaaaaaaa and see you tonight!


    PS Happy Guy Fawkes Night

    I think I'm going to do a talk this time (on the Elm programming language); what's the display hookup situation like? I can bring my laptop and set that up, but it would be easier if there's a Chromecast or something I can stream to!

    2 · October 27, 2015

    • Rob H.

      What kind of hookups are available? Sadly, my poor laptop only has a VGA port; will that work?

      November 4, 2015

    • Matt G.

      VGA will be fine! My old laptop only has that too :)

    Bummed I can't make it anymore. I'll be out of the country for the rest of the week. Looking forward to the next one.

    November 1, 2015

  • David T.

    Bummed I'm going to miss this one. I'll be at Blizzcon, trying to enjoy myself. :-)

    I wish I could go! The last one was super cool. But I'll be traveling :(
