August KyOSS Meeting

Short title for calendar grid: KyOSS
Date: Wednesday, Aug 8, 2012
Time: 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Location: LVL1 Hackerspace, 814 E. Broadway (rear), Louisville Ky. 40204

Topics for discussion include: BASH customization and shell scripts, Symfony development framework for PHP, Linux Mint 13 with Cinnamon, One-page webapps, ...

Topics on the slate so far:

  • Bash shell customization and scripting (Barton Chittenden) - a good config file (or two) can supercharge your command line experience. And having a toolbox of custom-made shell scripts renders you a wizard in the eyes of the rest of the world. Barton wields this magic every day at work and has agreed to share with those who would learn.
  • Symfony2 development framework for PHP (Charles Griffin) - Charles has set up a neat PHP working environment using Symfony2 and the Aptana plug-in for Eclipse. He has found Symfony (along with OO PHP) to be extremely useful for building form-based apps. (He might also show us how he uses some mind-mapping apps.)
  • Linux Mint 13 with Cinnamon (Ben Fitzpatrick) - Ben continues his series of distro reviews with this one.
  • One-page webapps (suggested by Jim Troy) - Jim posted a few links on this subject to the list recently, so we'll take a look at it.
  • plus come with your own topics

And, we'll be ordering pizza. (Thanks, Deven, for coordinating this.)
