PDXPUG: May meeting next week

When: 7-9pm Thu May 15, 2014
Where: Iovation
Who: Selena Deckelmann
What: The Final Crontab

Crontabber is a new open source utility that makes cron jobs automatically retriable, uses Postgres to store useful information like duration and failure reasons, and integrates easily with Nagios. Come hear about the reasons Mozilla created this tool, and how it’s helped us make our environment more stable and reliable, and less prone to getting calls on the weekend.

Selena Deckelmann is a major contributor to PostgreSQL and a data architect at Mozilla. She’s been involved with free and open source software since 1995 and began running conferences for PostgreSQL in 2007. In 2012, she founded PyLadiesPDX, a portland chapter of PyLadies. She founded Open Source Bridge, Postgres Open and speaks internationally about open source, databases and community. You can find her on twitter (@selenamarie) and on her blog. She also keeps chickens and gives a lot of technical talks.

We have a new meeting location while the Iovation offices are being renovated. We’re still in the US Bancorp Tower at 111 SW 5th (5th & Oak), but on the ground floor in the Training Room. As you face the bank of elevators from the main lobby, take a good deep breath of drywall dust and head to your right to a hallway. Follow the hallway as it turns to the left. The Training Room is the 2nd door on your right and is labeled “Training Room”. There is no room number.

The building is on the Green & Yellow Max lines. Underground bike parking is available in the parking garage; outdoors all around the block in the usual spots.

See you there!
