A new day is dawning for robotics. The tools of manufacturing have been democratized and robots have become modular and configurable. It is easier than ever to make your own robots.
This conference will shine a spotlight on this fresh approach to robotics and the roboticists that are building a better tomorrow through automation. The day will be have talks, demonstrations, explanations, and robotic wisdom.
This first inagural Botacon has the theme “Robots for a Better Future.” You are invited to submit your talk about your pet robot project, your innovations in robotic stepper controllers, your sweet software for controlling two robotic arms at once or things you can make with a robot that make the world a better place. If you’ve got a tutorial or some wisdom to share, submit it here as a talk. While the audience will be heavily skewed towards MakerBot Operators, you are invited to submit your talk on anything robot related.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
