OT - Geeky coworking space

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
Mike and I have corresponded a little bit over the past day, and we
actually randomly ran into each other this evening at a networking event
(not literally). He knows what I'm about to say.

I'm (possibly) looking for 2 desks. Not a private office, that's too
expensive right now. A coworking space, where I would have my own desks - 1
for me, 1 for an employee - would be just the ticket.

Downtown isn't really a good option for me, due to the nature of my
business (going in and out a lot, travelling to client offices, carrying
computers / networking / server equipment in and out all the time, etc...).
Also, Society of Work seems expensive. So that's not one I'm willing to
consider.

I've posted a part-time (to turn into a full time) job position at
https://developcents.com/jobs/, which will give you an idea of what the 2nd
person would be doing.

Besides Mike's place near Signal Mountain, anyone have an office space, or
know of someone who does, that would be an idea fit for what I'm looking
for?

Must haves are phone, internet, and desk.

Access to a private meeting room is a bonus!

OT: TPP mandates enforcement of Non-competes

From: Rod-Lists 
------------------------------------------------------
"The connection between Silicon Valley and Detroit (sorry Detroiters) comes in Article 18.78, which requires countries to have laws allowing companies to protect trade secrets and imposing criminal penalties for violators. The language in this section is broad, but it can certainly be interpreted as implying that governments allow for the enforcement of “non-compete” agreements. Non-compete agreements prohibit employees from quitting their job and working for another company in the same industry for a substantial period of time.

This is an important issue for tech companies. Many states allow for the enforcement of non-compete agreements, which companies often put in contracts both to limit their employees’ mobility and also to try to impede competitors. Importantly, California does not. A recent study found that the difference between California’s law and Michigan’s law, which does enforce non-compete agreements, was an important factor in California’s success in the technology sector. Unlike Michigan, it is easy for tech workers in California to quit their jobs and join a new company or start their own."

From: John Aldrich 
------------------------------------------------------
Anyone know of any decent jobs for a "Geek of All Trades"? I'm looking
to possibly relocate to Florida in the next few months. My lady friend
is originally from Cleremont and wants to go back. I'd just as soon go
with her... don't have anything really holding me here except the house
and the job. If I had another job I could deal with the house. :)

Fwd: Front-end Web Developer Position (full-time, freelance)

From: James Nylen 
------------------------------------------------------
I was contacted about a remote job opportunity for a JavaScript (React.js)
developer in the event registration and ticketing space.  Sounds like a
good gig, but I already have one of those :)

Additional notes from Garth - please contact him at garth@eventespresso.com
if you're interested:

> Some developers shy away from our requirements. But if we find the right
React developer then we can find some design resources to help them if they
are not familiar with Photoshop/Illustrator, etc. So you can pass that
along as well.  This position will be the "React expert" for our
development team that orients our core php developers with React. They know
JS, just not React specifically.

Subject: Front-end Web Developer Position (full-time, freelance)
To: jnylen@gmail.com


Hello James,


We are looking for a full-time front-end freelance web developer. I found
your information on GitHub and I wonder if you have the right experience
and would be interested?


We build applications for online event registration and ticketing. Our core
product is an extension (plugin) for WordPress which we sell services for
both as a plugin and SaaS.


We are building an event directory that aggregates these events from
thousands of event publishers' self-hosted websites and our SaaS platform.
We want to add a front-end web developer to the team who can help with
UI/UX projects such as this event directory. In addition we plan to spend
some time improving the UI/UX of our core product by enhancing the default
WordPress interfaces and then building a fully custom JS UI. We also have
two brand websites that could use some updating. But, the event directory
will be the first priority.


We need someone with the following experience:

   - *Advanced**:* Photoshop/Illustrator, HTML, CSS, Javascript (React),
   and jQuery, Object Oriented Programming
   - *Intermediate or Beginner**: *PHP, MySQL, WordPress/WordPress CLI,
   Version Control (git)


We give our staff a lot of autonomy, but we are also very collaborative.
You must be focused and self-motivated, have solid planning skills, and
basic marketing and customer skills.


Compensation depends on experience. Again, this is a freelance,
full-time opportunity (~30-40 hours a week).


If you are interested in knowing more, please reply with some examples of
your work and we can set a time to talk.


Thank you,

Garth Koyle

2016 SouthEast LinuxFest -- Call for speakers closes soon and much MUCH more!

From: "George P. Burdell" 
------------------------------------------------------
Howdy all.   The 2016 SouthEast LinuxFest will be from June 10-12 at the
Sheraton Charlotte Airport in Charlotte, NC.   As usual our event is
totally free to attend.   Our call for speakers is still open but if you
want to speak hurry and submit soon -- it closes on 4/1 (no joke! ;)).  We
love taking a generous helping of talks from regular guys from the region
as speakers.  It's a great chance to tell everybody about your passions and
network with the people who make the software you love and use every day.
We'll be streaming talks again this year free onto YouTube -- but don't
think you'll get the full experience watching from your chair!  We had
scores of people hired to work on the FOSS they love at SELF last year and
we'll have several companies at SELF again this year looking to hire YOU
for your FOSS skills.  And our geeks with guns and craft beer bottle share
events are pretty legit, too!

If anybody from this LUG will be attending -- please email me off list.
SELF is trying to coordinate to send back "swag boxes" to LUGs with
shirts/stickers/etc they can share with their members.

If anybody wants to submit a job to our job board (free!) please feel free
to send that to me off list as well and I'll get that up right away.   We
got several people hired that way last year as well!

If you are interested in submitting a talk, becoming a sponsor, getting
some propaganda to spread on your blog/social media, volunteering,
organizing a carpool, organizing a room share, finding a FOSS job, or
becoming an ambassador, you can get all that information here:

OT: Old Smartphone becomes ultimate remote

From: Phil Sieg 
------------------------------------------------------
Happy New Year!

I, like many of you, have struggled with a large and growing collection 
of remotes everywhere I have a TV.

I finally figured out that my phone is the ultimate remote control. Then 
I figured out that an OLD UNUSED smartphone was an even better choice so 
it can stay with the electronics for the wife and kid to use as well.

SO my old android phone is now:

TV Remote
PLEX Controller
Chromecast controller
Marantz Receiver controller with Marantz app (Denon and some others have 
receiver apps as well)
Netflix Remote
Hulu Remote
Logitech Harmony Hub interface

So when I sit down I nab the android remote, launch the logitech harmony 
app and tell it I want to either: Watch TV, Chromecast, Listen to music. 
When I choose the hub executes a macro that turns the appropriate gear 
on, switches inputs and gives me unified remote ability from either the 
smartphone screen or the Harmony remote. i.e. when in TV mode the 
channel up and down is my cable box while volume is my receiver.

PLEX is my goto for most of my streaming, so I set the system to 
chromecast, launch plex on the android remote, start my show, and send 
it to the chromecast which turns the plex app into a graphical remote 
for controlling the stream.

By setting the phone to Airplane mode and then turning BT and wifi back 
on I can get 3-4 days out of the battery. Since it is a handset with 
wireless charging, I just set it on the charger each night and it stays 
charged.

The glue that binds all of this is the $100 Logitech Harmony Hub which 
is a brilliant product well executed with fantastic build quality to boot.

This is a poor description of what has turned into an elegant solution.

Hope it helps another person in remote hell.

HELP! Ubiquity Unifi...

From: Phil Sieg 
------------------------------------------------------
So I just set up my network in the new house.

I ordered a 3 pack of the ubiquity unifi long range AP's.

Installed 1 on the middle floor (3 floors), and I have full signal 
EVERYWHERE in the house.  Tomorrow I was going to put up the other 2.

Question: Is there such a thing as over-saturation of signal? I have 3 
and I have a "box" in each ceiling that needs to be covered. I am not 
opposed to using them all and NEVER EVER having weak wifi again unless I 
am 2 blocks away.

Gimme the straight poop guys.

EPB rocks and a Pro-Tip

From: Phil Sieg 
------------------------------------------------------
I am having a great day.

In my new house (been building for a YEAR now), EPB came by to hook up 
the internet & TV locations. I asked them if they could put a "few" ends 
on my CAT5 pulls... They said SURE!

So 18 cat 5 runs = 36 ends. Next I said can you tone them out and label 
them please? They said NO PROBLEM SIR!

Can you test each one? ABSOLUTELY!

Pro-TIP if you do a house, remodel, business wiring and you get EPB... 
They will do all the hard shit FREE and be nice about it!!!

They just gave me an entire day of my life back!
