  • Adrian Close: ZeroTier
  • Enno Davids: Ethics - Weasel words, weasel words, weasel words, bad thing


Please note that as Adrian was not able to present this talk in February he will be giving it this month instead.
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.

Ethics - Weasel words, weasel words, weasel words, bad thing

A discussion of ethical considerations inherent in using and writing software, highlighting that there are few if any hard and fast lines and that while your ethics and mine may coincide, our ethics and that other guy's may not. WARNING: copious real world examples and audience participation may be involved.
Enno is a 35+ year veteran of the UNIX and Open Source fields. Having both contributed to and made use of the technologies the community has created he has a good relationship with the creators of commercial and free (in its various interpretations) software.
Of late Enno has been involved in data collection both the typical OS and app based as well as remotely probed embedded (Arduino and wemos/lolin), and other monitoring and big data. Splunk has been a speciality for some time now as have some of the newer tools that appear at regular intervals.

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.
