    Portland Functional Programming Study Group: "Reinventing the Wheeler" and more

    PRESENTATIONS

    1. "Reinventing Wheeler" by Matt Youell -- Wheeler is a lazy, imperative, declarative language with no functions and no objects. Some languages try to eliminate state. In Wheeler state is the primary abstraction. Wheeler is very early in development and is at a stage where feedback from the technical community would be greatly appreciated.

    Portland Semantic Web Interest Group

    Tonight we'll have the first of our Semantic Web application demos. Three lovely volunteers will be showing actual applications that use Semantic Web technologies in various states of development.

    Brian Panulla will show a system for building and interacting with rubrics - tools for educators to facilitate assessment and grading of student assignments.

    Leif Warner will be demonstrating a semantic web system modeling complex and shifting state of the local Portland music scene.

    Paul Daigle will be demonstrating a semantic system for identity management. The model cross-links between authenticated social objects (people, groups, time, location) and associated media (data, content) to help manage access.

    So come, listen, discuss!

    PLUG Advanced Topics: DRBD & Pacemaker part II by Adam Gandelman

    DRBD stands for Distributed Replicated Block Device. Mainline in the Linux kernel since 2.6.33, it is used to replicate data at the block level over the network in a "network RAID1" fashion. It is generally deployed as a cost effective, shared-nothing alternative to a SAN and used as the building block for high availability clusters. Pacemaker is currently the de facto open-source cluster resource manager (CRM) for Linux HA clustering. With it, nodes and services can be monitored and managed to ensure maximum uptime in the face of the most severe service and hardware level failures. Combining the two allows admins to %99.999 uptime at a fraction of the price of proprietary alternatives.

    In LINBIT's second PLUG Advance Topics installment, Adam Gandelman will give a more in-depth view of DRBD and Pacemaker and demonstrate how they work closely together to keep applications running and consistent. During the second half of the presentation, Adam will provide attendees with a real-world example by configuring a highly-available LAMP cluster from the ground up. Though geared toward web services, the concepts presented can easily be expanded to provide the HA gaurantee to virtually any Linux service.

    Agenda: - Brief re-introduction to DRBD, Pacemaker and HA clustering concepts. - Overview of various use cases and interesting deployments - Configuration and implementation of a highly-available LAMP cluster using DRBD for data redundancy and Pacemaker for resource management.

    Adam Gandelman is an expert in open-source clustering and high availability. Originally from New England, Adam lives in Portland, OR where he has been working at LINBIT, developers of DRBD and maintainers of Heartbeat. Aside from providing top-level Linux High-Availability and Disaster Recovery consulting for customers in the Americas, he leads LINBIT training courses in the US, doubles as a technical writer and regularly contributes to related open-source projects.

    PLUG Advanced Topics: What Went Wrong with My Disaster Recovery Plan

    Brian Martin will be test-driving his IEEE presentation on his experiences in a true, "abandon the building" disaster recovery effort. He'll place particular emphasis on where technically sound, well-tested disaster plans often fail in a real disaster, and how these problems can be overcome.

    The best data center disaster recovery plans are developed carefully and tested regularly. If you're at that stage, you may think you are well prepared. In this entertaining presentation, Brian Martin describes the unexpected problems that arose when a well thought out and tested plan met a real disaster, and draws lessons that are applicable to any disaster recovery situation.

    Brian Martin has spent 30 years in the IT field, fairly evenly divided between being a mainframe system programmer and a server system administrator. He has operated Martin Consulting Services in the Portland Oregon area since moving to Portland from the San Francisco Bay Area in 1996. He has a wife, two cats, a dog, and nine in-service computers at home.

    Portland Functional Programming Study Group
    1. Presentation: Jamey Sharp will give us a walk-through of the Haskell gzip deflate algorithm code that he and Josh Triplett developed.

    2. Group coding activity: We'll split up into groups that will each try to build an FP app from scratch in an hour, and then share the results with everyone. We'll make teams with people of different skill levels, so having FP coding skills will be useful but not required. My hope is this activity will give more folks a chance to explore and learn from others how to design and implement an FP app. Sample app ideas: blog, Twitter-clone, Sinatra-like web-framework, message queue client/server, filesystem directory browser, CSV-to-JSON converter, etc.

    PLUG Advanced Topics: Automated Failure Recovery/High Availability

    Dwight Hubbard of Effective Automation Solutions will give a presentation entitled:

    Automated Failure Recovery/High Availability

    The discussion will include different types of high of high availability and will go over setting up a simple highly available web environment using reverse proxies and failover clustering.

    If time is available (or things go quickly), we'll extend this to a more complex environment that provides highly available virtualization clustering.

    The time may change slightly to accommodate POSSE, like in the good old days.

    See you there!

    • "Serialist: Lazy web-crawling in Haskell" by Jamey Sharp and Josh Triplett

    The http://serialist.net/ site provides a way to find, track and read serialized content (e.g., web comics). It's implemented entirely in Haskell and demonstrates functional web application development, crawling, scraping and distributed architecture. Serialist uses interesting graph algorithms to add and step through content lazily. Work on the site also produced useful, reusable Haskell modules: early-finish monad, HTTP Digest implementation, database layer, recursive monadic data structures, fast/lazy character converter, etc. Jamey and Josh will discuss these topics as well as their experiences analyzing and profiling their Haskell code to improve performance and reduce memory consumption.

    • Jamey Sharp's day job involves a computer test for attention deficit disorder, but his biggest projects have been the Portland State Aerospace Society, XCB, and Serialist. Twitter: @jamey_sharp. Projects: http://www.ohloh.net/accounts/jamey

    • Josh Triplett is a PhD student at Portland State University and a Free and Open Source Software hacker. He's involved in research on relativistic programming and advanced synchronization techniques for highly parallel systems. Josh builds and launches Linux-powered rockets with the Portland State Aerospace Society, and hacks on numerous other projects. Homepage with projects: http://joshtriplett.org/

    PLUG Advanced Topics: DRDB HA Clustering on Commodity HW

    Using DRBD to Build High-Availability Clusters on Commodity Hardware

    Charlie Schluting of LINBIT will explain how DRBD works and how people currently use it, with enough information to get you started building your own clusters.

    DRBD stands for Distributed Replicated Block Device, and as the name implies, allows you to replicate block devices over TCP. DRBD is extremely flexible due to the fact it is a block device, and as such is used in a variety of situations. At the most basic level, you can replicate data between two servers to provide synchronously replicated storage redundancy for either failover or disaster recovery purposes. In active/active mode, you can also run GFS, OCFS2, or other clustered file systems.

    Topics that will be covered: - How it works, history, and future exciting news regarding mainline kernel inclusion - How it is used: HA-iSCSI, HA-NFS, Virtualization, Apache, Samba, etc. - Cluster Resource Manager options and recommendations, and news about the confusing changes in the Linux-HA / Clusterlabs communities.

    And the majority of the time will be spent on: - Example cluster configuration: hardware setup, installation and configuration, and cluster manager integration.

    Come with questions!
