Week #10: Lightning Talks
Ben Goldberg - 29 October 2021
Hello LUGers, as we announced earlier, we are doing lightning talks this week! We will be doing a series of short 5-10 minute talks on anything Linux, FOSS, or tech related. Or anything else you think would be of interest to the club. You don’t need to prepare slides or anything, just come up and talk! You could show us your Linux setup, show off a CLI cool tool you use, show off a project you’ve worked on, or even give us your spiciest tech hot takes.
An additional announcement, HFOSS is being offered this coming spring semester. More info below.
GCCIS now has an Immersion in Free Culture and Free and Open Source Computing (https://www.rit.edu/study/free-culture-and-free-and-open-source-computing-immersion) and one of the required courses, IGME-582, Humanitarian Free & Open Source Software Development is offered next semester, M, W, F from 12:00-12:50.
The course is also required for the Free and Open Source Software and Free Culture Minor (https://www.rit.edu/study/free-and-open-source-software-and-free-culture-minor).
It’s also a gen ed course, for students who may need one in their worksheet if they have an interest in the subject but not the immersion or minor.
Students can see a copy of last year’s syllabus (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1NklzMMRhidi6xXSM-QahRMDDOekRmnC1iwykMtqHC7M/edit?usp=sharing), this year’s course will be similar in structure, the speakers and some of the assignments may vary slightly.
The course is open to students in all majors, the assignments run across the roles of software projects and the assignments to contribute to projects can include, but not be limited to, graphics, communications, interfaces and more, in addition to software development.
