Proposals for this user

* Deploy with Devopracy Event Cloud!

This is a hands on workshop where you can bring your laptop and learn how to deploy an application to the event cloud. Bring your own app, or deploy an open source civic engagement application from a supported collection. The tooling is Packer, Terraform, and Chef Zero with a CLI in Ruby. If you know the steps to get your code running on a server, we'll show you how to go to cloud with bootscripts and custom resources available.

* Devopracy: Infrastructure Code for Virtual Democracies

Devopracy is an open source project to build a disposable, portable cloud for civic engagement events and virtual democracies. We'll examine these use cases with consideration for security, maintainability, and code quality. There's a companion workshop on how to deploy the cloud and deploy an application onto it.

* Metaprogramming in Metarepositories

OSBridge is one of the best conferences I know to hobnob with talent in DevOps, Systems, and Infrastructure. This is an advanced talk on development environments for distributed systems programming. Let's get down with git, and automate all the things.

* Good Enough Voter Verification & Other Identity Architecture Schemes for Online Communities

This talk is a deep dive into considerations for Identity Architecture for online communities. It's most specifically applications for political action, civic engagement, or virtual nations. I'll talk about pragmatic solutions for voter verification using the state voter registration database, schemes for peer to peer authentication, offline/online identification, Impartial Identity Architecture to control conflict, and more. The discussion is high level and appropriate for beginners, but there will be links to code and big ideas.
