Speakers:

  • Lilly Ryan: Why is software still so bad at acknowledging that all users will eventually die?
  • Adrian Close: ZeroTier
Why is software still so bad at acknowledging that all users will eventually die?
 
Lilly Ryan is a pen tester, Python wrangler, and recovering historian from Melbourne. She writes and speaks internationally about ethical software, social identities after death, teamwork, and the telegraph. More recently she has researched the domestic use of arsenic in Victorian England, attempted urban camouflage, reverse engineered APIs, wielded the Oxford comma, and baked a really good lemon and coconut cake.
 
ZeroTier
 
Adrian is going to talk about using ZeroTier as the basis for a resilient WAN.  Also for access to and between boxes that have no direct inbound connectivity.  And for VPN purposes.  And for doing interesting stuff with traffic redirection and inspection.
 
He has worked in the local Internet industry for the last 25 years or so, doing *nix sysadmin, security and networking, and generally just trying to make stuff work.

 

Note: The ZeroTier talk was cancelled due to illness, so Andrew Pam, Russell Coker and Lilly Ryan presented on the LCA2019 conference instead.

Many of us like to go for dinner nearby after the meeting, typically at Brunetti's or Trotters Bistro in Lygon St.  Please let us know if you'd like to join us!

Linux Users of Victoria is a subcommittee of Linux Australia.
