BASE: fish (friendly interactive shell)

by Moises Baltazar

The friendly interactive shell (fish) is a unix shell that attempts to be more user-friendly, interactive, and feature-rich then competing shells (sh, csh, bash, and zsh). Unlike zsh, which requires investing time to configure plugins to make it pop, the best things about fish are already builtin and enabled.

Moises is a freelance consultant who specializes in Data Science. He speaks javascript and R, but dreams in python. He may be found on the web at , or @mobalt on github, kaggle, or linkedin.

These sessions might show factors common with both personal and enterprise computing.

MAIN: Docker Container Security

by Bob Ward

Docker and other systems for running infrastructure in containers have become increasingly popular for businesses of all sizes over the past few years. Whether you're running them to avoid configuration headaches, for isolation between services, or to ensure a consistent deployment, containers have many benefits over traditional system deployment methods.

In this talk, we'll go through a 101 level introduction to deploying containerized infrastructure securely with Docker. The talk will cover topics like patching, underlying host access, and automated tools to help guard against mistakes. We'll also talk about some best practices for building and deploying your containers that can help avoid trouble down the road.

Robert Ward is the co-founder and CTO of Juristat. In his role there he's helped build a fully containerized infrastructure that handles secure data from many of the top patent filers and firms in the country. He is also a co-founder of Arch Reactor Hackerspace, and a co-organizer of the monthly STL2600 meeting.

Sometime after 7:00 PM we attempt a quick welcome, introductions, announcements, current events of interest, and a general CALL FOR HELP (Questions and Answers) segment.

Sometime after 7:30 PM, we may take a short break before our MAIN topic (usually focused on enterprise computing),
