GitHub Secrets Talk

personal github 3 comments suggest edit

If you happen to be in Oahu next week (lucky you!), Wednesday April 9 2014 at 5:30 PM, come see my talk on GitHub Secrets at the University of Hawaii (lucky me!). Did I mention good food will be served?!

What am I speaking about? Well I asked a few dear friends of mine what questions they would want answered in a talk by me and this is what they came up with.

It’s really an opportunity to talk to developers and students about topics that are near and dear to my heart.

Share your knowledge when you travel

This is the second time I’m giving a talk while on vacation in Hawaii. The first time was a couple of years ago. When I went back home to Alaska, I also gave a talk there.

I’ve found that places that are outside of the usual tech-hubs tend to be very welcoming to outside speakers. It can be hard to maintain a software user group when you don’t have a large pool of speakers to draw from as you would in Seattle or San Francisco.

So if you find yourself on vacation somewhere like Alaska, Hawaii, or elsewhere, you should consider getting in touch with a local user group if you have something interesting to share. It may be your fresh perspective is exactly what they’d like to see.

But here’s a pro tip. Giving a talk while on vacation does introduce an element of stress that you’re probably going on vacation to avoid in the first place. I advise trying to schedule the talk near the beginning of your vacation. The amazing feeling of relief after giving a talk will help you relax the rest of the trip.

Sadly, I did not think of this until after I scheduled this talk. But I think I’ve prepared enough in advance that I’ll be able to relax. After all, I’ll be in Hawaii. How can I complain?

    This is a great idea. There are development groups in most cities and towns across the land and you might get to meet some interesting people. I spoke at the .net UG in Vegas when I was down for CES and learned a bunch about programming slot machines. Now I'm a millionaire! (not really)

    Products and applications of natural biological sources preservatives

    1 , lysozyme

    Lysozyme is a toxic protein , a microorganism capable of selectively decomposing the cell walls of pathogenic bacteria within phagocytic cells from the damaging effects to suppress the propagation of microorganisms .Marbofloxacin, Especially against Gram -positive bacteria have a strong lysis can be used as sake , cheese, sausage , butter , raw preservative pasta , seafood and ice cream and other foods.

    2 , Nisin (Nisin)

    Nisin is a polypeptide compound by a variety of amino acids can be used as nutrients are absorbed by the body . In 1969, the Food and Agriculture Organization / World Health Organization (FAL / WHO) Joint Expert Committee on Food Additives confirm nisin as a food preservative . March 1992 the Ministry of Health approved the implementation of the document states : " Science can be considered as a food preservative nisin is safe ." It can effectively inhibit food spoilage caused by many Gram-positive bacteria, such as Clostridium botulinum , Staphylococcus aureus ,Aztreonam, hemolytic streptococcus, Listeria , Bacillus stearothermophilus spores growth and reproduction , especially for produce spores of Gram-positive bacteria have effects. Antibacterial effect of nisin by interfering with the normal function of the cell membrane v , resulting in penetration of cell membranes, and membrane potential nutrient loss , resulting in pathogenic and spoilage bacteria cell death. It is a non-toxic natural preservatives , no adverse effects on food color , smell, taste , texture and so on. Now been widely used in dairy products, canned products , fish products and alcoholic beverages.

    3 , Natamycin (Natamycin)

    Natamycin (Natamycin), is satisfied that he controlled fermentation of Streptomyces a white to creamy white odorless crystalline powder , usually in the presence of the enol structure . Its mechanism of action is associated with fungal ergosterol and other sterols alcohol groups binding repressor ergosterol biosynthesis,Norfloxacin, so that distortion of the membrane , resulting in leakage, causing cell death. In the bakery Dough with natamycin surface treatment significantly prolong the shelf life of action . Add the sausage, jam and other food and beverage production in a certain amount of natamycin , both to prevent mildew , and will not interfere with other nutrients.

    4,8 a polylysine

    8 a polylysine research abroad, especially in more mature in Japan, China has just started . It is a natural biological metabolic products. Has a good thermal stability and disinfection , biological preservatives having excellent corrosion resistance and great commercial potential .Natamycin, In Japan, eight have been approved by a poly-lysine added to foods as a preservative widely used instant rice , wet cooked noodles, cooked vegetables , seafood, sauce, soy sauce, fish and fresh biscuits anticorrosion .research 8 a polylysine Preservation of milk . When using 420mg / L 8 2% of a poly- lysine and glycine complex , fresh is best , you can save the 11d, and there is still a high acceptability , also found that 8 of a poly- lysine and other natural antibacterial agent used in conjunction with obvious synergies that can improve their antimicrobial activity .

    In the United States , the researchers suggested that 8 a polylysine as a preservative for foods. 8 a practice found polylysine with protein foods or acidic polysaccharides interact ,Cefdinir, resulting in loss of antimicrobial activity , and 8 a polylysine weak emulsifying capacity . 8 is therefore limited to a poly- lysine starchy foods.
