General Meeting on Wednesday - 8 February 2017
The St. Louis Unix Users Group (SLUUG) general meetings are usually on the second Wednesday of each month.

SciTech Implications of an Open Systems Architecture
by Bryce Meyer, Carnegie Mellon University
* This will be an elaboration on his Jan 10th presentation at the recent American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics SciTech conference.
* Expect about 20 slides from that and an additional ~20 from the Open Architecture class he teaches for CMU's Sftwr Engineering Institute.
* Open Systems Architecture - Best practices, Verification, and Security
* Come and hear from experienced OSA practitioners about various aspects of their own OSA efforts that were challenging or risky and which mitigation approaches emerged.
Bryce Meyer is imaginative, inspirational and instructive.
