Audience: Everyone
Topic: FOSS @ HOME

In this session, we will talk about the current state of AI, how it is changing our lives and what tools that leverage this magic are available today that can make us more productive. Mastering the dark arts of automation and knowing what AI is capable of can allow us as developers to spend more time doing other things while making our applications more secure, performant, durable, and maintainable. While this magic is not going to replace us any time soon, it sure can make our lives much easier!

Topic: Observability

Without sales leads or conversions, how does a commercial organization measure the gains of participation in a community event? And for community projects, what's the return on investment in running a booth or giving talks at such events? This presentation outlines the challenges of figuring out the ROI of community event participation, and will offers multiple potential solutions Red Hat has been experimenting with to measure impact and gains.

The Intelliplant stands as a testament to collaborative innovation, bringing together the expertise of the mechatronics, sensors, and design teams. This multidisciplinary effort, with each subgroup focusing on specific aspects, allowed an all-girls team to harness peer-conducted research and construct Intelliplants—self-watering plant pots powered by Arduino with real-time monitoring capabilities. This intricate project utilizes an array of components, including Arduino UNO, relay, neopixels, photoresistor, soil moisture sensor, LED matrix, water pump, and power adapter.

Topic: MySQL

MySQL is famous for running the web. This implies that a lot of connections to will be made from, in most cases, many webservers to a limited number of database servers. We'll discuss how MySQL handles this and how connection pooling can help you optimise this process. We'll also talk about ProxySQL and how this can help to easily implement a connection pool for your MySQL.

Topic: MySQL

Long before 'NoSQL' databases became all the rage, developers stored JSON in relational database tables. With the advent of the JSON data type, developers now have a powerful set of functions to update, retrieve, and filter data based on values stored in a JSON blob. In this session, we discuss storing JSON in our database and how the tools in MySQL can make that task a bit easier.

Audience: Everyone

My talk will provide a personal account of how I was asked to step into the Open science world and learning on the job, opened my eyes to how segragated and fearful we can become to change. I will provide an overview on Open science at NASA and at the federal level. I will also talk about the benefits and impact of open science to the research and academic world. I will talk about the NASA TOPS mission and how my introduction into being certified as a Carpentries instructor provided a new road map to how I would approach my work as well as how I would work with others in the future.
