March ’13 SLUG meet is held as usual at the Cock Hotel Wellington Thursday 28th @7:30 onwards. Food is available on the night. This month David Owen has kindly volunteered to bring his combat robot along and give us a talk on it’s inner workings. Second up is a group talk on the up coming Raspberry Jam, what can you do for the cause, bring your Raspberry !!!
Last week we had the opportunity to talk to Alex of Space Gambit in of all places Shrewsbury High street. The upshot is that we have been asked to come with a proposal for a Space Related Project. The project can be anything space related,the project will be judged on it’s merits and the budget required (Up to 20K$). As well as technical merit, an educational element is important also the project must also be open source!
Fellow Space Cadets get your thinking caps (or should that be Helmets) on and create some great ideas for a SLUG project.
In a short paragraph it’s simply not possible to tell you every thing that was there every area of open source software was represented, there’s something for any and everyone. I was particularly interested in the Linux on ARM /ARM64 talks and robotics tracks and no doubt I’ll be talking about these at some latter date
There are also developer rooms where project members can get together and code as well as the normal stalls of Companies and open Source projects.
It should be noted that although they give you the opportunity to donate the entire event is free to attendees, flight and hotel for 3 days was less than £200 a bargain!!
