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.
Nathan Fish explains IPFS, the Interplanetary File System. Doug Moen demonstrates developments in Curv, the programming language he developed. See kwlug.org/node/1150 for additional information, slides and other auxiliary materials. Note that this audio has had silences clipped.
Joan Currie will give us an overview of AI and machine learning. She may cover topics including: what data is, what makes an AI company, what machine learning can and cannot do, technical tools for AI projects, and/or realistic views of AI.
John Kerr will discuss his use of LaTeX at his law library. He writes:
Not just for math and science, LaTeX has found its way into the law library I manage. I will demonstrate some of the documents I create in the library. I will also show what Gaelic and LaTeX have in common.
Bob B discusses the virtualization distribution Proxmox, and the vulnerability scanner OpenVAS. Victor Kofia discusses the Nix programming language, the Nix package manager and the NixOS distribution. Unfortunately, once again we had some A/V issues during the meeting: the recording of the end of Bob's presentation got cut off, and Victor had projector issues. See kwlug.org/node/1149 for additional information, slides and other auxiliary materials.
Chris Irwin presents UEFI (the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) and Jason Eckert discusses Pop!_OS, an Ubuntu remix focusing on developer productivity. Unfortunately, Jason's microphone cut out halfway through his presentation, so we lost a lot of audio. See kwlug.org/node/1145 for additional information, slides and other auxiliary materials.
Victor Kofia will discuss NixOS and the Nix package manager. Nix takes a declarative approach to systems configurations, and all upgrades/rollbacks are atomic. It bills itself as "the purely functional Linux distribution."
