SUN JAN 22 2-4:30 PM SKILL SHARE: RADICAL DIY COMPUTING AT THE ARMORY WITH LEE TUSMAN AND ECHO THEOHAR
We are learning to build a simple Linux computer from scratch using the new CHIP from Next Thing Co, including hardware, operating system and programs. As a backdrop to our hands-on building, we will also be learning about the open-source software movement as an alternative to corporate computing culture and as a tool for self and community-based empowerment. Come with ideas and questions around open-source art projects, security, gaming, activism, etc.
This event is free. The first 20 people to RSVP [firstname.lastname@example.org] will walk away with a handbuilt computer. Others will leave with a complete guide to building an open-source computer for under $50.
