 Abstract:     It's BeerSIG time!
               'What's BeerSIG?' I hear you ask! BeerSIG is a social
               gathering, and an opportunity to get together with
               like minded people and share a social pint.

               Look for the table with a stuffed toy penguin

Title:	       Red Hat Insights - Paul Wayper

	       Red Hat Insights is basically a way of automating 'situation' detection
               on Linux computers.  'Situation' here is fairly broad - it can 
               be anything from 'you have a package with a known vulnerability
               listening on an open port' to 'you have this hardware, which is 
               incompatible with this setting in the software you're running' 
               to 'it looks like you can get more performance out of your 
               database if you set this setting here'.

	       This would be a more technical talk, looking at how you write rules 
               in Python for Insights, but I'm happy to spend a lot of time in Q&A
               covering what Insights is, what it isn't, how it can help and how it 
               isn't going to put technical support people out of a job 

	       see https://lists.samba.org/archive/linux/2017-September/036422.html
	       for background topics it's worthwhile studying first
