From pirate radio to badge hacking to Linux and robots – and a now 10-year-old meta-talk ‘ConCon: A History of Hacker Conferences’ from 2006 at ShmooCon – there’s an archive of Hacker Conferences here at Internet Archive.
Brilliant and profane, insightful and hilarious, nightmarish and uplifting – for years, hacker conferences have brought together the best and worst in human nature, encouraging speakers to share their thoughts on life both online and offline. Informal where other conferences are uptight, these conferences have covered an enormous amount of subjects. The lectures themselves are historic records and performances, playing up to the crowds and laying out the facts.
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.
