Ottawa Valley SAGE
LOPSA-Ottawa will be starting a series of introductory workshops on containers and micro-services this month (May 17th at the Kanata Dymon Storage Boardroom) that will be running for several months in order to get people new to the concepts a little hands experience on in a relaxed setting.
Our very active Columbus chapter recently met up on the 28th of March. Jared Price gave a presentation on "From Sysadmin to CTO."
"Making the transition from a systems administration role to a technology leadership role is often challenging. Many sysadmins are talented and passionate about what they do and have perfected the art of expertly managing systems, automating key processes, and adapting to a constantly changing technology stack (virtualization, cloud, containerization). The move to a leadership role requires a strong foundation in technology, but also an understanding of business processes and people."

East Tennessee LOPSA
LOPSA of East Tennessee held an event on April 3rd. Hosted by TEKsystems in Knoxville, Matt Lindsey of ORNL spoke on 'IoT Hacking for Fun and Profit.'
"The Internet of Things is an increasingly inescapable element of life on the information superhighway in 2018. While this plethora of low power, infrastructure-like devices can provide a lot of user convenience, it’s no secret that security is near the bottom of most vendor’s priorities. This talk will cover the state of IoT industry security in 2018, recent events that shape it, a primer on the unique security considerations of these devices and best practices for organizations that leverage them."
