Phone Death

From: Phil Sieg 
My Galaxy s4 died friday at lunch. Kaput. Guess the little Chinese guy that revived it last month will be getting it back on my next trip...

So I hopped on craigslist and got a Nexus 5 from a guy 3 blocks from me for a fair price.

I LOVE the Nexus so far...BUT am a little concerned about battery life.

BTW I have a ton of accessories for the S4 if anybody is interested....

3 new batteries (1 samsung, 2 Zero lemon Hi Capacity 3,000 mah)
At least 3 different Spigen cases (2 slimarmor ones)
Desktop charger that works with or without a case

Let me know if there is any interest.

Dave's Garage - Moving Sale

From: Dave Brockman 
Hash: SHA1

The house finally sold, we're finally moving.  I still have things I
do not wish to move.  Some of you want those things.  Your last chance
to see those items will be Friday evening or Saturday morning, before
they are packed by movers and packed away into storage (and then
secondary move, and wait for me to find time to sort again).

Known to exist:
10/100 unmanaged switches (Intellinet/3Com/AT)
Dell 740 Optiplex units (I believe all are dual-core XP COA included)
Cheap SOHO "Routers" of various flavors (Netgear/DLink/Linksys)
23" 2 Post Rack
Couple of CRT Monitors
Tiny 17" LCD Monitor (makes a nice server rack head-end in a pinch)

If you've been here before, you know literally anything could fall out
of a box and into your vehicle.  Or the whole box.  Anything listed
above is available for free to a good^W^W^W^W new home, donations of
Mojo and other lunchables accepted.

Anything worth more than a burrito is most likely available for
negotiation for cash, BTC (dust included) or barter.  I like shiny
fast network thingies.

Ed, it's really time for you to come pick up your Packard-Hell LP and
HP LC Netserver.  I've been holding them long enough for you... :)

Also to note, as we are cleaning out the garage, I will also be
packing up the bar.  Bourbon and Scotch have been known to fall into
glasses over ice cubes during such events.  We'll say the bar hours
will be from 6-9pm on Friday.  Pizza is also known to mysteriously
arrive during such events, if there are hungry folks to eat it. Reply
via unicast if you need contact information, directions, etc.

New job

From: Billy 
How's been a Red Hat employee for 3 days?

This guy!

Anyways. I'm a Solutions Architect for the southeast, mostly Florida for now, but I'll be moving up to Atlanta in about 4-6 months. I'm still little green around the products, but I'm learning as fast as I can!

Anyways, I'll be around more, and may even have some accounts to support in Chattanooga by the end of summer.

Would love to attend some chugalug lunches after I get settled.


free devlab

From: gary hasty 
FYI, if anyone's thinking about coming down for the AT&T hackathon this
weekend we're also having a devlab session during the day at the foundry:


*Free one-day workshop on the AT&T Speech, In-App Messaging, Advertising
APIs, and Appcelerator*

Are you a *mobile application developer* with an interest in adding *voice
commands*or text-to-voice translation to your app?  Or sending *text
messages* from inside your application?  Or earning *advertising revenues*?
Join the AT&T Developer Program for a one-day workshop on the *AT&T Speech,*
 *In-App Messaging* (including SMS and MMS)*,*and* Advertising APIs*.  This
will be a day of learning and hands-on coding ("lab time").  Bring your
laptops (PC or Mac) and leave with our APIs working from your own AT&T
Developer Program account. The event will close with a session by Pratik
Patel, CTO of Triplingo and evangelist for Appcelerator, on how to leverage
Appcelerator to complete your app.

The workshop will be taught by AT&T and Appcelerator subject matter
experts, and AT&T Developer Program staff.  This also is a great
opportunity to network with AT&T and your fellow mobile developers. We will
be using Postman and cURL for the lab exercises.

The event is free and lunch is provided.  If you are an app developer
working independently or with a company planning or already producing
mobile applications then this is the event for you. Space is limited so
register now.

Find out how carrier APIs from the AT&T Developer Program can benefit you
and your app strategy. *We look forward to meeting you!*

Developer Event this Weekend

From: David White 
This email was just sent to the Chattanooga Developer Lunch Meetup group,
and I was planning on sending a similar version to you guys before I event
got that email just a few minutes ago.

So instead of reinventing the wheel, I'll just plagiarize from that email.
I may or may not be able to make it (likely not):

Code Across, which looks like a really cool developer event is taking place
this weekend at the Chattanooga Public Library. Come out and meet with
other developers that are interested in using technology to make
Chattanooga a better place to live.

From the event description:

"CodeAcross 2014 is a weekend of events taking place in cities around the
world. There will be events hosted simultaneously in dozens of cities all
across the globe during the weekend of February 21-23, 2014. Coinciding
with International Open Data Day , the goal of
CodeAcross is to activate the Code for America network and inspire
residents everywhere to get actively involved in their community.

Chattanooga's CodeAcross event will be focused on beginning to build
solutions to some of our City's most pressing transit, housing, and public
safety challenges.  You helped us identify the challenges we need to tackle
at our kickoff event in December - now come help us build the solutions!

Technologists, educators, designers, planners, and thinkers of all kinds
are needed to team up with our Code for America Fellows and Brigade members
to start turning your ideas into accessible, useful tools.  Join us to
build the tools that will build a better Chattanooga."

Drupal Camp Chattanooga - Sat Nov 9th 2013

From: Lee Walker 

I'm running our very own Drupal Camp this year at Chattanooga State.
The beginners track is "Drupal in a Day" - included in the ticket
price - which will teach you to site build with Drupal (no coding
skills necessary) in a day. All you need is a laptop. We'll teach you
to build a website.
Interested in getting (younger) coders into web tech? This is a good
class to take.
Other tracks include theming, and development, plus some business sessions.

$25 a ticket. Includes lunch and a t-shirt.

This is a community run event (i.e. not for profit), and needs the
tech scene support.

The Drupal community is one of the largest and friendliest open source
communities out there. Come join us.

I'm still trying to raise sponsorship (to pay for the camp). So if
anyone knows any local businesses who may be interested in sponsoring
please send them my way, or send them this link
I have tiers ranging from $200 to $500.

Each attendee can also add an optional personal sponsorship of $20 to
help if they are feeling the open source vibe.

Incidentally, in the spirit of open source, I'll be publishing all the
information on where the money came from and what we spent it on.

Hope to see you all there.

Chugalunch Monday October 7

From: James Nylen 
I'm hereby calling a Chugalunch at The Terminal, #6 14th St, Chattanooga,
TN, USA on Monday, October 7, 2013 at noon local time.

If that's not clear enough for anyone... then you had better come because
you are probably a space alien or a time traveler and that means we're the
people you want to talk to.

I'll be at the outside tables, weather and availability permitting.

Good Lunch

From: Mike Harrison 

Good Lunch, although James got very distracted by the scenery
and is still recovering from a wild weekend it seems.

and I learned about Redis: redis.io  and that Wil has built his own rules
