Talk 1:

Topic: Emacs Prelude

Description: Emacs Prelude is a distribution that enhances the default
Emacs experience. In this talk, we will address the installation,
configuration and usage of Prelude for beginners as well as for power
users. It has a simple architecture and is compatible with GNU Emacs
25.1+. Although it comes with a pre-defined set of packages, it also
provides an easy way for customization.

Duration: 30 minutes

Speaker Full Name: Shakthi Kannan

About Speaker: A Free Software enthusiast.

Talk 2:

Topic: Two uses for Single board computers

Description: Single board computers (SBCs), like the Raspberry Pi, are
ideal for running 24/7 because of their low power usage. Applications
that need to run all the time, could be run on an SBC.

In this talk, I’ll discuss setting up 2 such applications on the Raspberry pi:
1. IRC bounce server (ZNC)
2. Pi-hole (an application that blocks ads network-wide)

Though I’ll be using a Raspberry Pi for demonstration, the tools (znc
and pi-hole) would work on any SBC that can run Linux.

Duration: 40-60 Minutes

Speaker Full Name: Abdun Nihaal
