Start: 6:00 pm

Have you ever installed an open source product and the instructions told you to set a folder or file to 777 (world writable)? Probably so, but this is a major no-no in terms of keeping your server secure. Hear Joel explain why this is so bad and how to properly configure your server to make this insecure setting unnecessary. Time will also be available for you to share your security war stories, as well as ask questions that may currently be stumping you on the security front.

As always, this is the Second Tuesday of the Month - at bucketworks!

MadisonRuby

From August 18th to 20th, Madison, Wisconsin will host the Madison Ruby Conference at the Overture Center of the Arts. Madison Ruby (MadisonRuby.org) a two-track conference committed to bringing together two great communities: it will showcase the assets of the Ruby community to locals, and provide visitors with a chance to experience one of the best, brainiest, and least expensive places in the US to live and work.
The venues and layout of Madison Ruby’s events are such that we’re able to take advantage of the walkable downtown area awash in food, drink, and entertainment options.

The Workshops
August 18th will be filled with workshops for brushing up on Ruby and related skills. Scott Chacon will run “Working Effectively With Git”. Madison Ruby is also partnering with DevChix to organize and promote a free RailsBridge Workshop to reach out to under-represented demographics. In this workshop, you will build a complete web application using Ruby on Rails. This application will be fully functional by connecting to a database, reading and writing information.

The Talks
August 19th and 20th will feature dozens of speakers, including:
• Matt Yoho, “Have Fun the Rong Way” • Chad Pytel, “jQuery Mobile on Rails” • Gerred Dillon, “Re-imagining Rails Messaging” • Rick Bradley, “Free Whiskey ... Disk” • Jessie Shternshus, “How to Give an Awesome Lightning Talk” • David Copeland, “Making Awesome Command Line Apps in Ruby” • Jeff Casimir, “Blow Up Your Views” • Matt Margolis, “Scripting Vim with Ruby” • Dan Melnick & Scott Parker, “Building the Great Wall: API Driven Applications” • Brian Hogan, “Creating RubyGems from Scratch” • Jina Bolton, “CSS Workflow with Sass” • Chris Matthieu, SaaS Panel Member • Jon Larkowski, “Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How to Test” • Stephen Caudill, “Tip of the Skinny Iceberg” • Lori Olson, “Consultants & Rockstars, Who needs 'em?” • Collin Schaafsma, “Kick Your Project in the Mouth” • Renée De Voursney, “Whose Wife Are You?” • Tim Connor, “Your Mongo Haz Seeds” • Bryan Liles, MINSWAN • Jacqui Cox, "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!" - Strategies for
Coping in Chaos • Jason McCay, SaaS Panel Member • Steve Klabnik, Literate Programming • Giles Bowkett, “Life On My Home Planet.” • Meghann Millard • Charlie Nutter • Barry Hess, SaaS Panel Member • Steven Bristol, SaaS Panel Moderator • Gail Ambrosius, Master Chocolatier discussing her craft • A few other non-technical craftsmen are also in the line-up. We are planning to include a brew master and cheese maker but either are subject to change.

The After-Party
While talks, and workshops are great, the best part of any conference is the after-party. You can count on a killer after-party for the inaugural Madison Ruby with live entertainment, great music, good booze, and awesome conversations.

A Little About Madison, Wisconsin
While being one of the least expensive places in the US to live and work, Madison has a lot to offer. It is home to a number of great, award-winning breweries, a few within walking distance of the conference. It's also home to the largest producer-only farmers’ market in the country, just steps away from the conference on the Capitol Square.

What Attendees Should Expect
We encourage attendees to explore the beautiful downtown area. There is no better way to experience a new city than to go where the locals go. For that reason we have decided not to provide a crummy conference box lunch and instead encourage attendees to seek out lunch at one of the more than 100 restaurants within walking distance. Including Afghani, Ethiopian, Chinese, Japanese, American, Russian and restaurants of other types and themes. A highlight is L’Etoille, or it’s lunchtime persona Graze, which is rated as one of the top 50 restaurants in the country. And wherever you choose to explore EngineYard is helping to pick up the tab ... more details soon.
Along with the scheduled presentation tracks there is plenty of opportunities to inspire or continue conversations via lightning talks and ample spaces between talks.
