Hi, we are pleased to announce that the Free and Open Source Singapore inaugural meetup will be held at Red Hat Asia Pacific office, 11th floor. Past format is informal, open and social in that that we will invite speakers to share knowledge, then open sharing, followed by drinks and networking. Big thank you to Red Hat for also sponsoring pizzas and refreshments.

Current lineup of talks:
1. Short presentation on Agile Integration by Hon Hua, Principal Solution Architect from Red Hat
"Red Hat is a thought leader in agile integration, and has developed a technical hands-on workshop introducing agile integration involving the use of APIs and containers. The workshop showcases development, testing, and deployment of cloud-native solutions, all of which are built, integrated and hosted on Open Source Software from Red Hat.

Having the audience utilize technology solutions, through the lens of two popular technical functions in any organization: the Citizen Integrator and the Application Developer, this workshop enables both business and technical audiences to visualize the value of Open Source Software.“

2. SDRs (Software Defined Radios)
This talk will demonstrate using GNU Radio Companion[0]
and the HackRF One[1] to be able to receive (and transmit)
radio signals. The GNU Radio Companion is a very capable
FOSS tool that offers a significant amount of functionality
to do frequency analysis and works very well with the various
RTL-SDRs and similar hardware. For this talk, I will be
using the HackRF One as the SDR tool to both receiving and
transmitting radio signals. Note: Sending radio signals
outside the unlicensed bands is only possible if you have
a amateur radio license[2] or general radio license.
