LAG at Researchers Night
We’ve participated in the European Researchers’ Night co-organized by the Poznan University of Technology. The theme of the 2021 edition was "Hope in science", bringing focus to how science and scientists can save the planet. The purpose of this year’s event was to make young people perceive science as a source of strength, opportunities and hope for the future.
We presented tips and recommendations on energy saving mechanisms in the world's most popular open source operating system - Linux. Our aim was to explain, among other facts, how it is possible that some computers have longer battery life than others and the details behind that phenomenon. Some parts of our presentation focused on ways of saving a battery in a smartphone. Apart from that we featured many kernelspace and userspace mechanisms and utilities, such as ACPI, Dynamic Frequency Scheduling, Energy Frequency Scheduling, TPL, etc.

We are on the lookout for inspiration
There are a number of projects we are currently working on. The main ones include Singularity and Buildroot but we are always on the lookout for new and inspiring ideas. What better way to find them than to pick the brains of our fellow students.
If you are a fan or an avid user of some latest open source solutions, let us know. We don’t want to miss out on any opportunity to learn and investigate new stuff.
