KLUG Annual Holiday Party 2016

The Kalamazoo Linux User Group was very pleased to welcome Kalamazoo’s native son, Matt Crampton, to our holiday party.  Matt co-founded KLUG in 1998, and as a rising star in the Silicone Valley, he co-founded Gigwalk in 2010.  He currently serves as Gigwalk’s CTO.

Gigwalk is an innovative addition to the “Sharing Economy” where Gigwalkers can earn extra income using a mobile app on their smartphone and performing “Gigs”. Follow this link to a Wall Street interview Matt gave explaining the whole concept:

Those who attended our annual holiday party were very impressed with Matt’s accomplishments and his willingness to share his journey with us. We also had Erbellie’s Pizza and Pasta salad and, of course, our usual Raspberry Pi and Banana Pi from The Crew Restaurant
