It's been two weeks now since the Utah Open Source Conference for 2012. My fellow End Pointers wrote previously about it: Josh Ausborne about the mini Liquid Galaxy we set up there for everyone to play with, and Josh Tolley with a write-up of his talks on database constraints and KML for geographic mapping markup.
There were a lot of interesting talks planned, and I could only attend some of them. I really enjoyed these:
- Rob Taylor on AngularJS
- Brandon Johnson on Red Hat's virtualization with oVirt, Spacewalk, Katello, and Aeolus
- Clint Savage about RPM packaging with Mock & Koji
- Daniel Evans on testing web applications with Capybara, embedded WebKit, and Selenium (which End Pointer Mike Farmer wrote about here back in December)
- Aaron Toponce on breaking full-disk encryption (I missed this talk, but learned about it from Aaron in the hallway track and his slides afterwards)
- Matt Harrison's tutorial Hands-on intermediate Python, covering doctest, function parameters and introspection, closures, function and class decorators, and more.
I gave a talk on GNU Screen vs. tmux, which was fun (and ends with a live demo that predictably fell apart, and audience questions that you can't hear on the recording). Here's the video:
I have a bit more to cover from the conference later!
