South Florida Joint Security Event – State Sponsored Hacking, 23Jul 13

South Florida Joint Security Event – State Sponsored Hacking

It’s one thing when an individual tries to hack into your company but it’s quite another when foreign governments sponsor cyber-crimes and other malicious attacks. You might think that you are defenseless against such an onslaught; but all is not lost…
Join us and a panel of distinguished security experts, Tuesday July 23, 5pm at NSU’s Knight Auditorium for an in-depth look at what these threats mean and how you can apply best practices to stay one step ahead of the criminal spies.

Palm Beach IT Users Group, 9 Jul 13, Storagecraft Presentation by Kevin Uttich

I'd like to start with the most appropriate comments from our group leader:

I want to thank everyone who stopped in to last night’s meeting. We saw some new members as well as some who have not been there for quite some time.

A special thanks to Kevin Uttich for presenting on the latest Storage Craft products and offerings. For those who attended that want to become partners, you can contact Kevin at for more information.

Last, by never least, thanks to Lynne Keane for continuing to support and host our user group meetings at her Windstream office.

Finally, I will not be here the first 2 weeks of next month. I had the people who were present last night vote whether or not to have a meeting, and they all decided to skip the month of August. Therefore, there will not be an August meeting. Our next scheduled meeting will be in September.

Thanks once again to Kevin, Lynne, and to all that attended last night. Have a great rest of the week.

Deerfield Beach Coders' Cafe, 02 July, 2013

It all started with an interactive game, designed, (among other things?) to demonstrate some of the points to be made in the presentation.

Presentation by Kaushik Chokshi of COHEALO

“Is there a gap between Agile theory and practice? With ten years of practical Agile examples and some and fun exercises, let's explore the myths and reality behind this ubiquitous buzzword. We'll go through some theory (quickly) and play a game which explores the practicality of Agile concepts, and try to see if there's truth behind Yogi Berra statement that "In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is."


Kaushik brings over twenty years experience in software and application development having lead projects in the areas of healthcare services, e-commerce, practice management, and medical imaging. Kaushik earned a MS in Computer Science from Johns Hopkins University.

A very interesting presentation with a tremendous amount of audience participation.  Check out the Photo Essay here.
