General Meeting on Wednesday - 14 June 2017
The St. Louis Unix Users Group (SLUUG) general meetings are usually on the second Wednesday of each month.
We start the general meeting with a basic session (usually focused on personal commputing); which may include either
amazing graphical packages,
command line wonders,
demonstrations of useful applications,
displays of newly discovered web sites,
major resolution of long standing anomalies,
shifts in both time and space. Then we will have our usual quick welcome, introduction,
administrative announcements, and a Questions and Answers Period.
After all that, we take a break before our main event (usually focused on enterprise commputing).
The BASIC portion for June will be
The CAT Network on Raspberry Pi
by Lee Lammert
Sometimes it can be insructive to show muddles what happens when they use
an insecure web site, .. in the tutorial Wednesday Lee will demonstrate
how to configre the "Cat Network" on a Raspberry Pi 3B that will
substitute Cat pictures (Cat as in colorful furballs that purr) for any
image on the page!
This tutorial might show factors common with both personal and enterprise computing.
Lee Lammert is interesting and informative.
The MAIN presentation for June will be
Software Cost Estimation
by Bryce Meyer
Will cover the factors that can affect software cost, and methods and models to get the costs of software projects and software development. Calculations of how much a software effort will cost depend on the data available on the project itself, design choices, and organizational factors (examples: how good is my team, how well do they work together). We will walk through the current family of models, the good and the bad of each, and techniques to get better estimates so you can be more confident in how long that coding project will take, and how much it will cost.
