Watch the video from her tech talk at Hackbright here:
The New York Times proclaimed last August the “hardware renaissance in Silicon Valley.” Sixteen months later, Amazon announced “delivery by drone” in the not-too-distant future, publicity stunt or not. As the barriers both in cost and access to hardware have come down, you don’t have to be an electrical engineer to build some sweet circuits.
We see kids to artists to web developers build on top of Arduino and Raspberry Pi, making everything from intricate light-up clothing to home automation systems. So what does all this mean for the future of hardware? And how will it impact all us software people?
She will answer your questions, discussing her experiences as a “Software Person in a Hardware World”, running the engineering team at Tindie (“Etsy for Indy Hardware Makers”).
