ToorCamp 2016 Experiences

Last week I had the pleasure to attend ToorCamp 2016 and made a short video to highlight the cool stuff I saw and experienced.  ToorCamp is a biennial ‘American hacker camp’ that’s modeled after events like the Chaos Communication Camp in Europe.  If you ever have the chance to attend ToorCamp I highly recommend it!


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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.

  1. Looks like my first attempt at this got swallowed… anyhow, the Hackerboat’s hackaday.io page is the website my name links to above. Not only are the status lights Adafruit products, we’re also using Adafruit’s 9-Axis IMU board for heading information at the Ultimate GPS Breakout for location sensing. Great products all around, and some of the most trouble-free components on the boat.

  2. One more thing — the TSV Disputed Right of Way’s brain is a Beaglebone Black (that I may have bought from Adafruit), not a Raspberry Pi. I feel extra-compelled to point this out because Beagleboard,org was kind enough to give us some free development hardware.

  3. Great video! Since I took almost no pictures, this is excellent to entice my friends to come to the next one 😀
