I just got my PinePhone Today, and installed Ubuntu Touch!
so in that regard I'm a newb. Ive been running and programing in linux for about 15 years, but I'm sure most of what I write a horrible hack. I'm an electrician, I mess with lasers, leather, electronics, ancient traditional art forms, steam Punk, and just make random stuff. I can hardly wait to make my pine phone do novel things, but I'm just figuring out where everything is, and how its all set up.
I am setting up some Events at HOPE this year (2020) in NYC, in conjunction with the Maine hacker Club, and the Bangor Makerspace. We'll have an electronics instrumentation lab, Retro computing exhibit with special tribute to Chuck Peedle, and a Laser Cutting workshop. I'm really excited for all that. I'm encouraging all the hackers i know to go. I would love to meet some of ya'll as well!
