March 10th, 2015 Regular MUG Meeting

We meet at 6:30pm on the second Tuesday of each month at the Farmington Community Library.

Topics include:

From Kindergarten to Kickstarter: How Open Hardware Enables Makers at Every Stage

What is open hardware? Why did choose to make BeagleBone Black open hardware? What does this mean to professionals?  What does it mean to novices? Jason Kridner, co-founder of, will explore the experiences of makers like David Lang, author of "Zero to Maker", who went from unemployed to running OpenROV, a community and business building open hardware underwater exploration vehicles. Learn about working with local communities and manufacturers to dive into the fun world of connected electronics.

Jason Kridner is the co-founder of, where he has helped create open source development tools such as BeagleBone Black, BeagleBone, BeagleBoard, and BeagleBoard-xM. Kridner is also a software architecture manager for embedded processors at Texas Instruments (TI).

NTP - Network Time Protocol

With the switch to Daylight savings time occurring on Sunday, March 8th, we thought it would be a great time to talk about the time synchronization using the Network Time Protocol or NTP.  Whether you are running a single desktop computer or a data center full of servers, it's important that you can depend on system time being accurate.  At the March 10th meeting, we'll dive into configuring time servers and clients along with the tools that you can use to set and monitor the time.

Plus we'll have our regular features: Jobs Looking for People, People Looking for Jobs, and Red Lobster dinner afterward.

Hope to see you there!
