It's somewhat startling to realize OpenWRT wasn't nominated long ago ...
- OpenWrt is described as a Linux distribution for embedded devices.
Contributions - cash or equipment, but apparently to SPI, with instructions to forward to OpenWRT, instead of OpenWRT directly:
- https://dev.openwrt.org/wiki/SupportDonate - includes credit card payment means. No obvious PayPal mechanism sticks out.
KWLUG - The Kitchener-Waterloo Linux User Group is a monthly meeting of Linux enthusiasts. We meet in Kitchener, Ontario, usually on the first (non-holiday) Monday of the month. (Directions) Our meetings are free and open to those with an interest in Linux. Find out more about our meetings and browse the meeting minutes. Join our mailing lists.

Theo Belaire gives an overview of the Rust programming language and its memory-safety features. See kwlug.org/node/1091 for additional information, slides and other auxiliary materials. Note that we have truncated audio silences in this podcast. (What do you think of this?)
The University of Waterloo School of Computer Science (SCS) recently undertook a project to provide several hundred TB of redundant, multi-building distributed high-performance storage for SCS users and infrastructure use. The first part of this talk will recount the non-linear trajectory of the project from the formulation of goals through to the delivered Ceph system.
The design of this system allows for the modular addition of services utilizing the storage. The first such service, SCS Nextcloud, provides a DropBox-like functionality across all popular client platforms. We will give details of a high-availablity implementation of Nextcloud built using haproxy and containers.
