ASK AN ENGINEER February 12th 10pm ET – Saturday night with Amanda “w0z” Wozniak
ASK AN ENGINEER – ASK AN ENGINEER February 12th 10pm ET – Saturday night with Amanda “w0z” Wozniak. By popular demand – “Ask an engineer” with special guest Amanda“w0z” Wozniak. w0z was on a few previous shows (our most info-packed ones so far) – and she designed the MONOCHRON clock enclosure. W0z also designed the very popular and amazing DefCon Ninja Party Badges. W0z is a staff Electrical Engineer at Wyss Institute and formerly an applications Engineer at Analog Devices. This will be a great show. Join us as we discuss her recent video series (latest one below) and more!
Engineering isn’t always about rampant re-design, system overhauls and structural improvements – sometimes it’s all about understanding and appreciating the simple systems you interact with. Time to meet Fuzzy!
