- Sharing America's Code with Code.gov
Leveraging the power of code sharing and collaboration, Code.gov saves significant taxpayer dollars for the American people by helping the U.S. government cut down on duplicative software development. This initiative indexes open source projects from America’s federal agencies from the EPA to the DOD to GSA. Join the Northern Virginia Linux Users Group (NOVALUG) for a morning with Code.gov, and learn about their successes (and challenges) with open sourcing America’s code. Code.gov has indexed nearly 3900 Open Source Software projects from the U.S. Government. Showcased at this event will be some exciting projects including NSA-WALKOFF, CDC-MicrobeTrace, NASA-WorldWind, and USDOT-CARMA Autonomous vehicle platform.

- Open Source overview and Zabbix
Due to the Government Shutdown we're unfortunately unable to get code.gov to attend and present on January 12th. Once a political solution is found we'll reschedule code.gov to come back. We'll cover open source and what resources are available to people and communities of people to collaborate on Open Source projects. Andrew Nelson from the Zabbix project will talk about some cool monitoring he's done with Zabbix and popular and very versatile Open Source NMS.
- Intro to NextCloud
John Franklin will present NextCloud, an open source groupware solution, ideally suited to households, non-profits, and small businesses. John will go through the installation process and demonstrate as many of the features as possible, including file sync, calendars and contacts, server-side encryption, password management, and an online office suite. And before John tells us about NextCloud, Sid Ramesh has a few things the has created using 3d printing that he will share. In early 2019 he will possibly give a presentation on 3d printing in Linux. He noted that there are a couple of Loudon County Libraries with 3d printers that will print for a small (weight based) fee.
- Access Control in Physical Security
Access Control Systems Access control should comprise something you have, something you know, and something you are. Barcode, barium ferrite, magnetic strip, Weigland, proximity, and Hollerith are types of card or badge readers. Barriers restrict or impede access, are continuous, and deter threats. Locks are mechanical or electrical. Containers are classified by the Underwriters Association and categorized as burglary, record, and media. Area classification is controlled, limited, and exclusion. Roger Roehr will present detail of each providing insight to what goes on behind the scenes with access control.
