Let's talk technology ... Everything technology

Servers, Macs, Windows 10, my favorite DIY electronics, and anything else you want to bring up.  I'll start out with what my school is currently doing and the current 'fun' projects.  May even throw in how to make a realistic, cool, iPhone controlled BB-8.  Then I'll open the floor to any topics or questions.  Let's bring some down and dirty technology back to CALI.

Many of us have had to collaborate with others on articles, books, and other various projects, whether it is within our own office or with a colleague halfway across the country.
