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!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

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.
