Logitech R400 remote presentation controller on Linux

Since long ago I had it in my mind getting one remote presenter, but most presenters just had two buttons, and the ones that looked to be valid for my use case, required four and seems that only Rii had similar devices, but I didn’t went for it as it was not a huge need, so I ended up with a mini keyboard I had for Raspberry Pi and some debugging in case I had that need....

Ansible setup for VPN using WireGuard

Setting up WireGuard is not a difficult process but I wanted to automate it among hosts by using a simple playbook that can be executed against the hosts and get it configured and deployed in a simple way.

LDAP query from Python

Recently, some colleagues commented about validating if users in a Telegram group were or not employees anymore, so that the process could be automated without having to chase down the users that left the company. One of the fields that can be configured by each user, is the link to other platforms (Github, LinkedIn, Twitter, Telegram, etc), so querying an LDAP server could suffice to get the list of users....
