Events - February 2020

Friday, February 28, 2020 — 9:00 AM to 9:45 AM EST

Yoga for the Workplace

Yoga for many of us involves mats and a change of clothing; and a location other than where we are now. Margaret Hull, a teacher of Yoga at Queen Street Yoga, will show us that Yoga can be anytime and anywhere. Taking the time to stretch, move and pause can help releases stress, and enhance our focus. Seated and standing, we will explore awareness and presence in the body, the power of the breath, and some basic poses, with some time for a short Q and A.
 

Speaker Bio

As a UW science and music grad, Marg is thrilled to return to her alma mater to share another of her loves: yoga. Marg is passionate about helping others to optimum well-being, and holds a Masters in Psychotherapy and Spiritual Care.  
 

In her years as a singer, vocal coach, classroom teacher, mom, grandma, and counselor, she has found that yoga practice informs and enhances every aspect of life. She trained as a teacher in 2010, and continues to learn. Marg is part of the staff at Queen Street Yoga in Kitchener, where she offers Sunrise Practice, Yoga for Anxiety and Depression, and Intro to Yoga.

Seated and standing, we will explore awareness and presence in the body, the power of the breath, and some basic poses, with some time for a short Q and A.
 

This seminar will not be webcast or recorded.

Speaker(s): Vu Huynh

Vu's seminar is a brief introduction to Docker-based technologies and a guide on how to port legacy applications into Docker-based infrastructure and the benefits of using Docker. Docker is a software tool that allows application and their dependencies to be bundled into a virtual container that can run on any Linux server. A Windows version of Docker is also available. Using Docker provides flexibility and portability by enabling the application to be run in various locations, whether on-premises, in a cloud service.

Speaker(s): Terry Labach

Terry revisit his presentation from WatITis 2019: Salespeople are promising miracles for companies adopting cloud computing.  And people are buying in, rushing to move their internal IT functions to various cloud services.  However, it isn't all smiles and sunshine under the cloud.  There is risk in adopting this computing model, especially on the information security front. Terry will discuss some of the security and privacy issues that this entails and will outline the risks that have to be considered.  Look before you leap onto a cloud!
