VIDEO: Python Playgrounds “HACK CHAT” with @adafruit @WillingCarol @projectjupyter

VIDEO: Python Playgrounds “HACK CHAT” with Carol & Ladyada – (video).

We had a super fun “Hackchat” with Carol & Ladyada. Text chat was discord in the #livebroadcast channel, you can join here at any time too, we had live video on Youtube, Twitch, Periscope (Twitter) and Facebook.

We gave TRINKET M0 boards running Circuit Python! Projects folks planned to make were: Cat seizure detector, temp display for kids and teach daughters coding and more!


Carol Naslund Willing can frequently be heard saying “That’s so cool. How does it work? I would love to learn more about it.” She has enjoyed developing software and electronics and teaching others for over 20 years.

Growing up on the east coast, she was inspired by nature, the arts, and math. Wanting to learn more about those interests, she earned a BSE in Electrical Engineering from Duke University and an MS in Management from MIT. Her education and work experience in small and large companies taught her to respect the value of “using what you have learned to make something better and sharing what you know with others”.

Carol is currently a Research Software Engineer at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo working full-time on Project Jupyter. She is also a Geek-In-Residence at FabLab San Diego; a Director of the Python Software Foundation; a core developer on CPython, Jupyter, Anita Borg Institute’s open source projects, PyLadies; a co-organizer of PyLadies San Diego and San Diego Python User Group; an independent developer of hardware and software. Weaving her love of art, music, and nature with wearable soft circuits, she is developing an open hardware project to assist an in-home caregiver with gentle, compassionate support of a loved one with Alzheimer’s.

Today, she spends much of her time learning and inspiring others to blend their unique interests and technology to create something new, silly, beautiful, or helpful.
