> Månedens tema er: «Flying rockets with Free Software» med Bdale Garbee.
> Foredraget vil foregå på engelsk. Kort om presentasjonen:
>   High power model rocketry is a hobby that lives at the intersection of
>   engineering, craftsmanship, and visceral thrill. While designing and
>   building airframes capable of exceeding the speed of sound on the way
>   to impressive heights is a big part of the challenge, rocket
>   enthusiasts also depend on electronics and software to ensure safety
>   and return each airframe to be flown again.
>   In addition to holding the highest level of certification in the
>   rocketry hobby and volunteering his time to local and national
>   rocketry clubs and events (including the annual NASA student launch),
>   Bdale also co-founded Altus Metrum, LLC, a provider of avionics for
>   the rocket hobby based entirely on open hardware designs and Free
>   Software.
>   In this session, Bdale will share his enthusiasm about the rocketry
>   hobby, explaining how everything he does from designing the rockets
>   and propellants, to designing and manufacturing electronics, to
>   running a successful open hardware business, is all accomplished with
>   100% Free Software!
> A contributor to Free Software since 1979, Bdale Garbee is perhaps best
> known for his quarter-century as a Debian developer. He retired early,
> after serving for more than a decade as CTO of HP's Linux business
> before being named an HP Fellow. In addition to co-founding and managing
> Altus Metrum, LLC, Bdale also serves on several non-profit foundation
> boards, including the Software Freedom Conservancy, the Freedombox
> Foundation, and Amateur Radio Digital Communications.
