Student Organizations and Academic Groups Day

Next Thursday on October 20th we are presenting our offer at The Student Organizations and Academic Groups Day in the Lecture Center of PUT. We will be stationed in the very heart of the building so you won’t miss us.

The Student Organizations and Academic Groups Day is a yearly event organized by students for students. Its aim is to present a variety of extracurricular activities offered by academic associations to those who wish to pursue their interests, work on multidisciplinary projects or simply learn something new.

We will be there presenting our offer and looking for new LAG members. We are going to attract students’ attention with the help of an object detection demo created and assembled by our vice leader Illia Vysochyn (@ivysochyn) using yocto tools and Antmicro’s codebase. The project’s configuration is open source and available here. Apart from demonstrating this project, we will be giving short talks about yocto and overall workflow in our organization.

LAG presenting at Poznan Open Source Meetup

On May 19th, 2022 we had the opportunity to give a talk for members of the Poznan Open Source Meetup group presenting the best distro to start your adventure with Linux.

The Poznan Open Source Meetup is a group for people who want to keep up with (and contribute to!) the most innovative and disruptive open source initiatives and projects the world of high tech has to offer. This is why we could not say no to the opportunity to present for its members.

In our presentation we focused on those who are new to the Linux world, or looking to set up a new system. We are aware that picking the right distro might seem like a daunting task. It doesn’t have to be, though! In our presentation we started off by defining what comprises a distribution and what matters when picking one and then moved on to showing different workflows and best practices. Our aim was to show that most of the distributions share the same underlying principles and it’s only the little things that make them different from each other. Whichever distro you end up choosing, you're in full control of how you use and customize it.

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.
