Linux, Meet Knitting, Knitting, This is Linux | #linux @SELinuxFest

Southeast LinuxFest is coming up and includes an awesome “Fiber Track” for learning about yarn, knitting, and other fiber arts techniques. Opensource.com have a great write-up for the fest that also connects the history of knitting to open-source code:

What if you could write a piece of code today that could be read, understood, and executed thousands of years in the future? Imagine the GitHub requests from the year 4018 for something you wrote today! Well, the knitting world is doing just that, using code (i.e., knitting patterns) written hundreds of years ago that can still be executed today.

This year’s Southeast LinuxFest will include a fiber arts track in addition to all the other events and goings-on. The knitting community is an interesting one to compare to the open source software community, and this is the subject of a talk, “K2P1, or “How Your Programming Language Evolved from Knitting.”
