Our June meetup will bring back two familiar faces. One who has given a talk that has been our most popular on YouTube and the other who brought a brand new open source server at the last meetup!

This month we're pleased to welcome back James Lewis (https://twitter.com/baldengineer). He previously had given a talk on the depths of capacitors (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAbOHFYRFGg). This month he'll return to talk about digging out non-standard, non-repeating signals while troubleshooting, such as runt signals. James is a technical content director for KEMET and also runs https://BaldEngineer.com , making videos about getting started in electrical engineering.

We're also pleased to welcome Rick Altherr (https://twitter.com/kc8apf). You may remember he brought the hardware of the new Zaius server to the meetup last month (https://twitter.com/Chris_Gammell/status/865399965979254785), a completely open source server project (https://cloudplatform.googleblog.com/2016/10/introducing-Zaius-Google-and-Rackspaces-open-server-running-IBM-POWER9.html). Outside of his server interests, Rick is a car hacker, working on improving stock cars via firmware and hardware updates. His talk will cover ECUs (engine control units) and how they interact with the physical world of engines.

As always, we welcome attendees to give 2 minute talks about their projects and companies (please see the organizers to get set up when you arrive).

We will have our usual spread of food and beverages. You should plan to bring the discussion about hardware (or whatever else you're passionate about).
