Arduino miniconf in NZ

Duemil328 Lrg
Likely the first of many around the world… Miniconfs/Arduino – LCA2010-

The concept of Free / Open Source Software, already well understood by LCA attendees, is complemented by a rapidly growing community focused around Open Hardware and “maker culture”. One of the drivers of the popularity of the Open Hardware community is easy access to cheap devices such as Arduino, which is a microcontroller development board originally intended for classroom use but now a popular building block in all sorts of wierd and wonderful hobbyist and professional projects. Previous LCAs have featured Open Hardware sessions including Arduino-related talks in various forms including as tutorials, paper presentations, and the Embedded Linux miniconf, and these sessions have always attracted a lot of interest from conference delegates.

  1. I’m going to do my best to get to this since I can drive down from Auckland (assuming the car hasn’t finally arseploded)

    Any other adafruitians going at all?

  2. Not sure if I’ll go, the last 3 talks look interesting, the only ones I’d want to go to :-)
    If I manage to get one of those $100 credits through sparkfun I’ll try to find Nathan in Wellington and buy him a beer :-D Maybe I should buy him a beer regardless :-)

  3. Yea, I’m going. Not sure if I’m an Adafruitian exactly – though I am frightfully nice etc.
