SIG-Computing Topic:  Code Rush Movie 

Presented by Wolf 

The Mozilla web browser was released as an open source project on March 31, 1998. To celebrate 22 years of the Mozilla project we’ll be showing the movie ‘Code Rush’ which documents the last-minute rush to get the source code ready for release by the promised deadline.

The movie follows several Netscape engineers as they battle all kinds of problems getting everything ready for release.

As an extra special feature, we’ll have with us one of the prominently featured Netscape engineers who lived through the adventure.  Wolf (formerly known as Scott Collins) will be on hand to offer his comments and answers to your questions about the movie, and what it was like to work on what would become such an important project.

Also: Questions and Answers following the presentation.

SIG-Linux Topic: Open source hardware

Presented by Sharan Kalwani

This month we will kick things up a notch and talk about Open Source Hardware! For many years we have heard about open source software, but you may be pleased to hear that there is a growing open source hardware movement afoot. While not all visible as Linux and friends, it deserves to be known and shared with all. We will spend the hour drinking from a fire hose and wealth of information on this topic.

Also: Questions and Answers following the presentation.
