Meeting Minutes/January 21, 2019
The meeting was held: Week 7*: Mon Jan 21, 2019, 6:30-7:30pm EST, Olin O169
- The officers could not come to the 6th week meeting, and not many people could come, so it has been rescheduled. The day of the meeting was decided by a poll in the Telegram chat. 4 people voted for next Monday, 1/21. Two of the officers announced they were able to go to that meeting.
What happened: 2 officers came, 1 member came.
What we did:
- Talked about the Rockpro64 board, got it booting w/ Ubuntu 18.04 minimal. Thermal paste that came with it was low quality.
- Talked about embedded Linux and buildroot for building custom Linux kernel images (ISOs) for certain chips/architectures/including certain packages
After the meeting, I talked with other active members about possible plans for having a different meeting style or changing meeting dates in the future, maybe on a quarterly basis. Many members are showing enthusiasm and interest in the club, even in the Telegram, but can't come on one day at one time due to having other club, homework, or chapter meetings. The Telegram is much more active than the meetings all the time, and it would be great to have some other way to be showing activity in the club besides going to scheduled meetings. It is also the case that this meeting time was worse this quarter than last quarter.
Elections are currently happening during Week 8. The results will be posted soon.
