Plymouth Lug meet write up Sept 2016

The September DCLUG Plymouth meeting was held at Hush Coffee. For a
number of people, it was their first LUG meeting, and everyone seemed
to have a nice time. We had a demo of
the Pocket CHIP,
MoonReader, libreboot, i3wm,
Debian/KDE,
and kubuntu. We talked about
Linux-related podasts (Bad
Voltage
, GNU World Order,
Linux
Luddites
, Linux
Voice
). We had an update on the Open Computing project at Plymouth
University, and we talked about some of the local events that had
happened recently,
including Code Club at
the civic library, Torbay
Tech Jam
and
the MiniMaker Faire at
Bristol
. We also talked about open computing and open science –
includuing R and data publication. There was also interest in retro gaming on Linux,
including the text adventures Lost
Pig
and
Jigsaw, and the
‘Get
Lamp’
documentary. Other retro computing topics
included: pico-8
and ZZT,
plus various emulation platforms
(Scumm, Doom, Playstation
1
, Spectrum,
and BBC Micro).

Rebelmakers

Rebel Makers is a network of peer-to-peer making clubs for everyone who is interested in technology – regardless of age or ability. At our Clubs, Rebels get together to share existing knowledge and learn new skills in a fun, safe and collaborative environment, exploring anything and everything from electronics and programmable hardware, through to writing code, design, and media production.
The Torbay Tech jam is trying to tie-in with Rebelmakers  so that we can be work closer togethe,r offer more support / activities for anyone who attends the jams.  For this to work we really DO need more volunteers to sign up and help,  as myself and tom are struggling to do the jams as it is.

I am not sure what is possible so as a plan B I am looking to find other potential partners to work with them to run clubs for ALL ages and abilities in the heart of torbay communities so we can really bring together people with similar interest and develop a vibrant techy  / hobby community

Kevin From rebel labs who run rebel makers will be down in November so if anyone is interested please come along to the jam for a chat,  and lets see if we can get anything going in Torbay.  It would be really nice to be able to offer far more support to the people attending the jam than we are at the moment.

Please visit the tech jam site and get in touch for more information.

libreCMC

The libre Embedded GNU/Linux Distro.

“libreCMC is a set of fully free embedded Operating Systems for general purpose computers. It aims to give its users freedom and control over the software that runs on their hardware. Most of the hardware that libreCMC supports includes a wide range of routers and some small single board computers.”

https://librecmc.org/librecmc/home

This looks interesting and perhaps can make a project for a tech jam to look at.  If anyone is interested perhaps chat at the jam or on IRC.
