Open Sourcing the Engineering Process: Amanda Wozniak @ 28C3
It’s true that I posted the video of the Open Hardware Summit version of this talk back in September, but that was shot with my Flip video and as a result you couldn’t always read the beautiful slides. The video production here is a lot better — meanwhile, the talk is still awesome!
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.

I am a software guy, but I just got into hardware design for a project at work, and this talk was really nice.
Oh, w0z. “I’ll try to go faster.” “No no no!” I remember when I talked to her at the OSHW summit she had said that she put in many, many hours rehearsing so she wouldn’t have to talk at a million miles an hour. I’m glad a pro film crew was there at this conference to record, as this is a really interesting talk that I definitely didn’t catch all the details of the first time.
Loads of good information… She talks really fast. She mentions so many things that a lot of people don’t do. I know I have many projects that are unfinished because I forgot what did what. I am convinced that people marked with the title of genius are really just good note takers.
