Dreams of Flight May 2014
I wrote this creative writing piece about Orville and Wilbur Wright and the first flight at Kitty Hawk for my Twentieth Century World History class in Fall 2013. I had written this piece for an assignment called A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words. We were tasked with writing an approximately 1000 word narrative from the perspective of a person in a significant photo from the 20th Century. Later in 2013 I was published in CLARO Red Rock Community College's Interdisciplinary Scholarly Journal. I in May 2014, I presented at the CLARO academic conference.
I first gave this presentation at the Mines Linux Users Group with Sam Sartor. I also gave the presentation for the Wednesday tech talk while interning at Pivotal. In both talks, we covered Idris, dependent types, and using Idris as a proof assistant.
I gave this presentation at the Mines Linux Users Group with Robby Zampino. We covered the background and history of packages and package formats, and some of the new universal package formats: AppImage, Snaps, and Flatpak.
I gave this presentation at the Mines Linux Users Group with
