Ed Smeltz presents How to speed up your bash scripts at Akron Linux User Group

I attended Akron Linux User Group today as Ed Smeltz was about to deliver his talk titled “How to speed up your bash scripts”.

I got a chance to speak to him about his voluminous book and learned that he has come up with quite a human to script table of contents in his new book titled “High Performance Linux Shell Programming Reference 2015 Edition”.

The book is available to buy at booklocker.com here: http://booklocker.com/books/7831.html

I uploaded all the videos from the night and added them to a playlist found here:

As well as on #bash channel on irc.

Ken Dorsey presents Software Defined Radio at Akron Linux Users Group

Today I went to Akron Linux Users Group’s formal meeting where Ken Dorsey presented a talk on basic introduction into Software Defined Radio.

Here’s meeting details from meetup (http://www.meetup.com/Akron-Linux-Users-Group/events/107527822/) :

Ken Dorsey will present a basic introduction into Software Defined Radio, the hardware and software available and how to start experimenting with software defined radio using a cheap $20 USB stick. He will demonstrate using a Raspberry Pi as a software defined radio system that will receive from .5 MHz – 1800 MHz for under $100. This is also relevant for HAMs, Raspberry PI/embedded geeks and electronic hobbyists. He plans to demonstrate using a Raspberry Pi as a software defined radio system that will receive from .5 MHz – 1800 MHz for under $100.

Here are the videos I took of the event. The technology is super cool, I hope to use it one day for sure!
