Be active, creative, helpful and you can get a powerful board in return. First give away batch is starting 11.6.2016
It's not often that you can work on a software project that actually brings joy and helps people. Armbian is one of those project. It is a system that helps one build a kernel or boot images for several ARM development boards.
It's in common interest that we improve level of support and to relieve most active people. Our crew needs an upgrade:
we need more coders, kernel hackers, UX designers to find and solve problems. If you are one of them, join our forum, join project at Github.
we need properly built, packed and supported desktop with major functions: video acceleration/fbturbo, libump, mali, etc.
we need to put together much better documentation. We need to fine tune MkDocs documentation tools
For those who are willing to claim a task or help others to understand "how do I do this in Armbian" we prepared a dozen of boards as a small reward. It's a Xunlong Orange PI+ 2E, which design was improved based on requests from our community. It's H3 based quad core with 2G RAM, 16G eMMC, Gigabit LAN, WIFI and 3x USB.
There might be just enough boards for everyone who are willing to do some public service work. Claim your projects at this topic and each weekend we will discuss and select up to 15 people who will get the board, starting with 11.6., ... until we run out of boards. One will be notified by email and expect an answer within 48 hours, if not, board goes to somebody else.
Boards were donated and will be sent directly from Xunlong Co., Shenzhen, China.
