WHAT: Embedded Hardware Workshop Munich & The Hackaday Prize Party
WHERE: Technikum at TonHalle, Munich, Germany
WHEN: Thursday, November 13, 2014 from 13:30 to 23:30 (CET)
ABOUT: The Embedded Hardware Workshop is an afternoon of hands-on activities meant to explore new embedded architectures or prove mastery for those already familiar with the devices.
Anyone who has experience with computer coding — from beginner to veteran — will find a challenge suited to their skill set.
THE HACKADAY PRIZE PARTY: Hackaday Munich marks the conclusion of the 2014 Hackaday Prize. The 6-month-long contest challenged hardware developers to use Open Design to build the future of connected devices.
The Hackaday Prize party will celebrate the five finalists shown below. We will reveal the order in which these entries placed, and award the Grand Prize winner a trip into Space!

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.
