Slackermedia is documentation providing the information a user needs to create a full multimedia studio running on Slackware Linux. It teaches users how to build a home studio using only the best in multimedia content creation tools that Linux has to offer.
Slackermedia is brought to you by Seth Kenlon, a film and unix geek, and Klaatu, a Linux podcaster, plus the entire Slackware Linux and open source communities (whether they know it or not).
Slackermedia is not a “laundry list” of multimedia apps that are half-finished, nor a blueprint for mindlessly installing apps you’ll never use, nor a series of mindless install scripts. It is a series of tutorials on understanding the UNIX way as it applies to the artistic process, designing a personalised workflow, and configuring a system so that it works for you and not against you.
Slackermedia recommends various “workflows” depending on your needs:
Slackermedia is documentation providing the information you need to create a full multimedia studio running on Slackware Linux. Its philosophy is to use only the best and most stable multimedia content creation tools that Linux has to offer. This not a beta testing exercise or a development platform; unproven technology need not apply. This is building a studio so you can forget about the tools and get down to creating cool stuff.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
