Message from JUG President, Jason Lee

December 20th, 2016 Comments off

Next month (January 10th, to be exact), we will have Google Developer Advocate Ray Tsang (https://twitter.com/saturnism) in town to talk about gRPC*. I saw a brief demo at JavaOne and it was awesome. This is a great opportunity for the Oklahoma City tech community, so we want to get the word out early, and, while the invitation is always implicit, we’re trying to make sure other tech groups are aware that they, too, are invited.

Another exciting change for the new year is that we now have, thanks to Techlahoma, our own Meetup group: https://www.meetup.com/okcjug/. We’ll be using this group for meeting announcements, reservations, etc. We’ll be basing our food order off of the registration numbers, so it’s really important that you all create an account and RSVP for each meeting. There are no plans to deny food to those who didn’t RSVP, of course, but getting accurate numbers ahead of time will help make sure we order the right amount of food.

I think that’s it for this year. Mark your calendar for January 10th. Go create a Meetup account. Watch for the meeting notice from Meetup and RSVP if you’re coming. And have a very merry Christmas and and a happy new year!.

* The topic hasn’t been nailed down yet. It should be either gRPC or Kubernetes. We’re still discussing. ūüôā

2016 September Meeting

September 7th, 2016 Comments off

When: September 13, 2016    11:30 Р13:00

Where: Prototek    401 NW 10th St.   Downtown OKC


Website: http://prototekokc.com/

Speaker: Tamara Bartlett, Software Developer and Consultant, ThoughtWorks

Topic: Infrastructure as Code (IAC)

The topic of¬†Infrastructure as Code (IAC) keeps cropping up in the world of Continuous Delivery and Continuous Integration but the topic can seem a bit abstract. But what if it’s compared with something everyone is familiar with, like board games? Dip your toes into the basics of automated deployment and Infrastructure as Code through some fun board game analogies. Learn about the benefits, challenges and tooling of IAC.

Tamara is a software developer and consultant currently working for ThoughtWorks. After graduating with a degree in Computer Engineering and a brief stint at Boeing doing software for satellites, she now is interested in DevOps, back-end software development, and ways to make software teams work harder, better, faster, stronger. In her free time, she runs, drinks excessive amounts of coffee, skydives, and attempts to do yoga. In the near future, she’s looking forward to presenting this talk at Grace Hopper Conference (for women in computer science) and attending HashiConf to learn more about Infrastructure as Code.

We thank Techlahoma for generously providing the materials for the meeting, including the projector, pizza, chairs and to ProtoTekOKC for providing the cool environment.

We are meeting at ProtoTek again this month as the new location is still not ready.
