    Bill Kendrick - "KDE Connect"
    Location: Explorit Nature Center (5th Street)

    "KDE Connect" is a project that aims to let your different devices communicate with each other. For example, can receive your phone notifications on your computer, use your phone as a remote control for your desktop, easily share photos and other files between devices (without using cables!), and more.

    To achieve all this, KDE Connect implements a secure communication protocol over the network, and allows any developer to create plugins on top of it. Currently there are KDE Connect clients on the KDE desktop for Linux, Android and and Blackberry devices (with support for iPhone coming soon).

Future Meetings:

  • [geek:3] Mon, May 18, 2015
    Alison Chaiken - "Systemd: The Modern Linux init System You Will Learn to Love"
    Location: Davis Public Library, Blanchard Room

    The controversial systemd — a suite of system management daemons, libraries, and utilities designed as a central management and configuration platform for the Linux computer operating system — has absorbed udev, and purported to replace syslog with the journal daemon.

    Recent decisions by Debian and Ubuntu to adopt systemd assure its prominence as a Linux init system. Users and sysadmins are predictably horrified. In fact, systemd is winning wide acceptance, our speaker says, because it is simpler, easier to use, and better documented than its competition. Alison Chaiken will describe how to get started with systemd, discuss some problems with it, and perform some simple demos.

    About the speaker:
    Alison Chaiken is a senior software engineer at the Embedded Software Division of Mentor Graphics, working in embedded Linux and middleware. She was in the recent past a MeeGo Technical Consultant at Nokia Mobility Solutions, and describes herself as 'a recovering physicist', who has computed primarily on Unix since the days of the VAX 11/750. Before her work at Nokia, she worked on pervasive computing projects at HP Labs, then moved to Stanford Linear Accelerator Center to write instrument control and user interface software.
