Monday 12th January 2015: Open Radio Miniconf
+
  
=== 'No pressure' policy ===
+
https://www.drupal.org/drupal-8.0
The Open Radio Miniconf is a low-pressure event, and we strongly encourage anyone who has an idea for an radio-related talk to submit a proposal even if you've never presented at a conference before. Please share this CfP with anyone you know who may otherwise not consider submitting a proposal.
+
  
=== Commitment to Diversity ===
+
This tutorial will give you hands on experience with the newest version of Drupal. If you haven't had a look for a while, now is the time to revisit the drupalverse.
We are especially keen to present a diverse range of experiences and voices, and actively encourage women and people from other groups that are frequently under-represented at tech events to submit a proposal. Please share this CfP with anyone you know who may fit with this objective.
+
  
=== Suggested Presentation Topics ===
+
We will build a website from scratch and learn how to participate in one of the open source world's largest communities.
  
Any topic which is related to both radio and open source technologies is considered on-topic for the Open Radio Miniconf.
+
We will attempt to build a basic, responsive website from scratch in one short afternoon.
  
Some ideas include:
+
For best results, you should be prepared with an idea or three of the kind of website you want to build. Bring some content, images, or pick a favourite Lorem Ipsum generator and some sample piccies from OpenClipart.org.
  
* Hardware for SDR
 
* Software for SDR
 
* Protocols over the air
 
* Digital voice
 
* Understandning data modes
 
* Encoding and Decoding data
 
* Logging data or voice
 
* Positioning
 
* Radio direction finding
 
* Here's a cool thing I did with my SDR
 
* Take a look at my new modem for digital modes
 
* Simple data links with cheap radio chips
 
  
=== Presentation Format ===
+
=== Background reading ===
Presentations will be 'lightning talks' session with multiple 5-15 minute mini-presentations. Ideally we would like to see proposals for longer lightning talks, you can also just present on the day (this is a very low-pressure way to ease yourself into presenting, so please have a think in advance about what you'd like to present).
+
  
=== Need some help? ===
+
* Redesigning Your Website in 2015? Start By Asking These 5 Questions - http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/240607
If you have an idea (or the beginning of an idea) for a presentation for the Open Radio Miniconf, we'd be very happy to talk it through with you to help you develop it further. Email Kim VK5FJ at vk5fj@wia.org.au or ping him at @vk5fj on Twitter to start the conversation.

=== Code of Conduct ===
+
----
Anyone presenting at the Open Miniconf is bound by the same Code of Conduct as presenters and conference attendees of the main conference. The full LCA2015 Code of Conduct is at http://linux.conf.au/cor/code_of_conduct
+
We won't be installing Drupal during the session, so if you want to work on a local dev version on your laptop, you might want to do that in advance.
  
To help ensure that presentations comply with the Code of Conduct, we require presenters to submit a copy of their presentation/slide deck for review by Monday 5th January, 2015 (one week prior to the start of LCA).
+
Web based training environments will be available.  Let's hope the network is up to it. :-)
  
=== Presenter Responsibilities ===
+
If you want to play with D8 in the meantime, check out Drupal Core on http://simplytest.me/
Presenters at the Open Radio Miniconf must be registered attendees of the main LCA2015 conference. Presenters are responsible for their own conference registration, travel, and accommodation costs. The LCA2015 committee has made available a small number of miniconf-only passes that we will be using to enable Amateur Radio enthusiasts to present who would not otherwise be able to attend.
+
  
=== How to Submit Proposals ===
+
----
 
+
Ready? Use the Discussion page to ask questions or make suggestions.
Please submit your proposal(s) by email Kim VK5FJ at vk5fj@wia.org.au
+
----
We encourage you to submit multiple proposals if you have multiple ideas.

=== Aims ===
+
 
+
This will be the second Open Radio Miniconf, this time part build-a-thon, part lightning talks.
+
 
+
There are three specific aims for this coming LCA, the three layers;
+
 
+
1) Build an understanding of radio and build an SDR transceiver to cover an ISM band and the HAM HF bands.
+
 
+
2) Build an understanding of the software required to Rx and Tx
+
 
+
3) Encourage software developers to study existing over the air protocols and start to design new ones.
+
 
+
That might not sound like a lot, but we still have a big challenge to complete the second goal. The third is obviously ongoing and we hope to be able to help facilitate new works on the ISM and HAM bands.
+
 
+
Mark VK5QI has decided that his experience with the [http://www.norcalqrp.org/files/Tayloe_mixer_x3a.pdf Tayloe mixer] with [http://www.qsl.net/zl1wtt/I&Q.htm  I&Q] as used in the SoftRocks is firm ground on which to build. He has been inspired by [http://nt7s.com/2014/06/a-prototype-for-a-si5351-based-ssb-rig/ some new SSB project by NT7S], using a newly available DDS, the multiple output [https://www.adafruit.com/search?q=SI5351&b=1 SI5351]. Completing the picture, the controller is the well known [http://arduino.cc/en/Main/arduinoBoardNano Arduino], designed by Massimo Banzi (check the recent [http://soldersmoke.blogspot.com.au/2014/09/soldersmoke-podcast-165-arduinos.html soldersmoke podcast #165]).
+
 
+
So moving forward the second prototype is currently on the workbend at Marks QTH. The software stack, while complex can be simplified to using existing applications like [http://w1hkj.com/Fldigi.html FLDIGI] or building the [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_Radio GNU Radio][http://gnuradio.squarespace.com/ stack].
+
 
+
Following on the the how in the now, we need to look forward. Thinking about the existing protocols, the current ways of encoding data on the wire and over the air, we are aiming to approach the design of new over the air protocols.
+
 
+
We are currently working through the materials for the build-a-thon. Once we are happy with them we will update this page and put an announcement here.

Drupal 8 brings radical evolution to one of the world's top open source web content management systems.

https://www.drupal.org/drupal-8.0

This tutorial will give you hands on experience with the newest version of Drupal. If you haven't had a look for a while, now is the time to revisit the drupalverse.

We will build a website from scratch and learn how to participate in one of the open source world's largest communities.

We will attempt to build a basic, responsive website from scratch in one short afternoon.

For best results, you should be prepared with an idea or three of the kind of website you want to build. Bring some content, images, or pick a favourite Lorem Ipsum generator and some sample piccies from OpenClipart.org.


Background reading


We won't be installing Drupal during the session, so if you want to work on a local dev version on your laptop, you might want to do that in advance.

Web based training environments will be available. Let's hope the network is up to it. :-)
