OpenWRT

Contribution Date

It's somewhat startling to realize OpenWRT wasn't nominated long ago ...

From http://openwrt.org/:

- 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.

2019-03: UEFI, Pop!_OS

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.
