  • Thomas Sødring - Noark 5v4 som fri programvare (2:16:51)
  • NUUG
  • Prosjektet nikita-noark5-kjerne er i sitt andre år med utvikling og vi har kommet et godt stykke på veien i arbeidet med å realisere en Noark 5-kjerne som fri programvare. Noark 5v4 eller tjenestegrensesnittet som det heter er fortsatt under utvikling. Vi har utviklet nikita-noark5-kjerne i henhold til Noark 5v4 og ønsker å dele våre erfaringer med implementasjon og tolkning av Noark 5v4 standarden. Vi vil gi en overordnet beskrivelse av teknologivalgene våre og forklare hva som ligger i HATEOAS-begrepet. Noark 5v4 bruker OData som en standard for søk og vi tar også en gjennomgang hvordan det brukes. Deretter åpner vi for en diskusjon om hvilken innovasjonspotensial det ligger i en Noark 5-kjerne som fri programvare og hva som skjer hvis arkivering blir gratis.
  • 20180109-trustworthy.webm (0:58:18)
  • NUUG
  • Jonas Smedegaard, Debian developer and PureOS developer, talks about backdoors in computers, and explains how some laptops, servers, and phones minimize such risks. He brings a Purism Librem13 laptop and a few other gadgets.
  • Virtual Machines and Where to Find Them (0:44:24)
  • NUUG
  • Viua VM is a greenfield virtual machine designed for parallel execution. Its instruction set aims to facilitate writing reliable, correct, concurrent software. Such an undertaking is not completed in a day or two - work on Viua started in December 2014, and is still ongoing. Viua positions itself as a contender to the throne currently occupied by Erlang's VM - BEAM. Apart from a technical overview, this talk will give a tour of the "softer" problems one may encounter while working on a piece of non-trivial Free Software. It will also discuss how work on such software may affect one's position in the academia and in the business world. This will be described from an undergraduate student's point of view, early in their carreer.
  • Vincent Ambo - Where does YOUR compiler come from (0:49:54)
  • NUUG
  • Many people are familiar with the problems around the lack of trust in proprietary hardware components and their firmware. Similar issues do however exist on the software side of things, especially when it comes to how we bootstrap compilers for the ubiquitous C-language. This talk will present an overview of how these processes work in modern Linux distributions, which issues we have and what the implications are. We'll also do a brief dive into related topics, such as repeatable build environments and reproducibility. If you're not already aware of these issues, hopefully this talk will leave you with a newfound sense of paranoia and some pointers towards things that YOU can do to improve the situation.
  • Trustworthy computers (0:58:23)
  • NUUG
  • Jonas Smedegaard presents Trustworthy computers. Buying a new laptop, phone or other computer is not easy. Many computers can run Linux nowadays, but depending on your needs fewer of them work well, if security is one of your concerns then options available to you surprisingly shrink to almost zero. The talk will highlight some security issues and advice on what to look for in computers - laptops, phones and small home servers - for those of us concerned about privacy and want full control over our computing environments. Jonas Smedegaard is a freelance systems administrator and developer with a special interest in ethically designed computers and software. Jonas is a long time Debian developer involved with several Blends including FreedomBox and DebianParl where ethical aspects of hardware and software is crucial. Since mid 2017 Jonas has been hired by Purism to help develop the Debian-based PureOS shipped with their line of Librem laptops and a future Librem phone. NUUG talk from 2018-01-09.
  • Nivlheim, et verktøy for datainnsamling fra datamaskiner (0:31:58)
  • NUUG
  • Øyvind Hagberg presenterer Nivlheim. USIT drifter maskinparken til UIO, som består av 2800+ servere (fysiske og virtuelle). Vi har utviklet et verktøy som kontinuerlig samler inn informasjon om disse, bl.a. hvordan de er konfigurert og hva slags hardware de har. Det hjelper oss å holde oversikt. Presentasjonen handler om hvordan dette verktøyet virker, og hvilke muligheter det gir oss. Vi går inn på noen tekniske detaljer, og snakker om historikken bak designvalg. Til slutt snakker vi om hva vi gjør for å gjøre dette verktøyet om til åpen kildekode, og hva vi planlegger videre. Øyvind Hagberg jobber i driftsavdelingen på USIT. Han holder på med utvikling av støttesystemer for drift av maskinparken. Han har bakgrunn som utvikler, og har jobbet på USIT siden 2014. NUUG talk from 2017-12-12.
  • TED - Rutger Bregman: Poverty isn't a lack of character; it's a lack of cash (0:15:03)
  • NUUG
  • "Ideas can and do change the world," says historian Rutger Bregman, sharing his case for a provocative one: guaranteed basic income. Learn more about the idea's 500-year history and a forgotten modern experiment where it actually worked — and imagine how much energy and talent we would unleash if we got rid of poverty once and for all.
