LinuxDay 2016 in Bernareggio

November 1, 2016 - Villanova di Bernareggio, IT

In Italy every year, during the last weekend of October, there is the Linux Day, an “open day” for the LUGs where they create events to publicize GNU/Linux and the Free Software. As usual (for the last 7 years now), the ViGLug organized this event and this time has been in Bernareggio (MB), a city less than half hour drive north-east from Milan. This year, for the first time in the ViGLug life, we have partnered up with other two organizations BrigX (the Bernareggio LUG) and the Coderdojo Brianza.

In the morning, many topics were covered, such as the various boards available, Linux, and the open-source software around them. In the afternoon, the focus moved to more advanced topics, such as GPIO, OpenWrt, the networking bits, as well as a hands-on session.
