The next ALE-NW@SPSU meeting is being held
Thursday, Aug. 30th, 2012 at 7:30pm in room J-266
of the Atrium (J) building on the SPSU campus.
The feature presentation will be Orlando Karam’s most
Linux on ARM and the Raspberry Pi
– ARM is a family of computer architectures, different from x86,
and characterized for its low cost and low power consumption.
Many cell-phones and tablets run on ARM, and now there are many
low-cost low-power servers running on ARM. We will discuss some
of the available hardware and the status of the software, with a
special focus on the Raspberry-Pi, a $35 computer system designed
with a focus on education, but useful on many domains.
– Orlando Karam was born in the US but grew up in Mexico. He got
hooked up on Unix while a grad student at Tulane University, and
has been running Linux on servers and laptops for more than 15 years.
He teaches computer science at Southern Poly, and has been playing
with his raspberry pi since he got it 6 weeks ago.
