Synchronizing mail, calendars and contacts

Chris Irwin lived a personal experiment to synchronize his mail, with the following goals:

  • Access mail from the commandline
  • Synchronize between hosts, with no information totally local
  • Use standards
  • Minimal annoyance day to day
  • Synchronize with Android

To accomplish this he uses a stew of utilities and libraries: mutt, notmuch, Khard, Khal, Todoman, iSync/MBsync, vdirsyncer, git, CalDav-sync, CardDav-sync, OpenTasks, Baikal and DavMail.

Raspberry Pi Projects

Omar Atwa, who is a grade 8 student, created a Raspberry Pi Water Irrigation System for his school's Science Fair. The project incorporates a moisture sensor, an analog to digital converter, and a relay, all driven by a Raspberry Pi to keep soil moist for a plant. He will be walking us through the details of what he did, and how he did it.

  • Where to buy a kit?
  • Using NOOBS to install Raspbian Jessie

Saturday, May 14 2016: Laptop Rescue Mission

Every so often a group of KWLUGers volunteers to rescue laptops donated to the Computer Recycling project at The Working Centre. For assorted reasons it is not viable for Computer Recycling to spend much time refurbishing these laptops itself, so we sort through them, select ones in reasonable condition, then install Xubuntu on them for resale.

Interactive Docker Workshop

Tim Laurence will lead an interactive tutorial on setting up and using Docker. If you have a laptop, you can bring it and follow along.

Tim has made Docker preparatory materials available at https://github.com/timdaman/docker-tutorial. He writes: "Tell people to be prepared or else. ;)" which probably means he is not going to make time at the beginning of the evening for people to get set up.
