Miscellaneous Business

Technical Sessions

  • Many of the people at the meeting requested that we meet on Main Campus. ~IsharaComix will talk to R&R about reserving a room in SAS Hall (with Mann as a backup).
  • ~IsharaComix said that the macaroni-and-cheese cookoff can happen, because someone he knows has a kitchen we can use.
  • Other talk ideas:
    • GitHub.
    • Skia (Chrome graphics) [tentatively selected].
    • Cross compiling software, especially for ARM.
    • Data mining.
    • OpenHatch. (Milkman has a contact with OpenHatch, and will see if they have anyone local.)
    • How a complete newbie can get involved in open source. (We're going to try and have this September 3, with Jason Hibbets if possible.)
    • HTML5 and new web stuff.
    • Ethics. (Better than 379.)
    • Language roundtable [tentatively selected].
    • Functional programming.
    • Linux kernel hacking.

Hack Days


  • There will be a "hack afternoon" on Friday to prepare for Packapalooza. Besides working on Minecraft hacking, we will construct a trifold board with LUG information. We'll pick a time and location, and email it out.
