"The 5th Annual Home Server Show Meetup" in Indianapolis Sep 12 2015 - TinkerTry will be there!
The stars started to align recently, with an unused personal flight voucher making all the difference, along with finding out some conflicting work travel had shifted.
So it was with great joy that I was able to reach out to leader David McCabe earlier today, to coordinate some logistics for a very brief presentation I'll be doing, more [details to follow](Home Server Show Meetup 2015 - My experience, and my Superserver presentation).
I then finished up my hotel and flight plans, and am now able to say,
I'M GOING! I'm going to Indianapolis! My 3rd time attending overall, and the first time I'm bringing something along with me.
Stay tuned to this post for developments, once things are confirmed, I'll make the announcements about what I hope to present.
Will I see some of you there?
Here's the official thread:
And the new official thread:
Nicest people anywhere! I asked for a lift from the airport, and had volunteers within 15 minutes. Wow!

This was a blast! So much fun was had, and so much learning from each other was done.
I have many more photos to publish soon, but much travel first, rising at 4:30am tomorrow to head to SFO.
Meanwhile, you can see John Stutsman's many tweets with pics.
Below, I also have a video of Matt for you, as he explains all the flight tracking gear he brought with him. How cool is that? Remember me and my obsession with flight tracking, seen in my forum post here?

Finally, I pulled together all of my pics and some video clips, with a picture viewer that includes fullscreen mode. Here you go, enjoy the show!
Getting the loaner Supermicro SuperServer 5028D-TN4T ready for the meetup took some simple assembly, here's two time lapse views.
Friday night food and fun together.
Don't miss Chris's SmartHomeHQ Podcast 36, where he discusses the fun we all had at the meetup, and what happens with most home automation when "the cloud" (Amazon Web Services) goes down. Even as an Insteon guy, I found a lot of good information listening in, sharing anxiety over the painful process of replacing my smart hub, someday. Guess what dropbox actually stores its stuff on today? Amazon. Same goes for the Content Delivery Network serving up all the images and HTML5/MOV videos on this page. Hmm.
Time to pack up and get ready for the 7am flight to SFO the next morning.
