Fantastic talk filled with enthusiasm and it was good to have the practical/hands-on element.
Today I learnt that developers actually use raspberry pis for real things... eventually.
Well explained and useful to the novice coder. One thing I would say is to relate more to PSR 2 and the coding styles that it recommends as thats the one I am really interested in as a new programmer.
Excellent talk on the hardware and software side of things. Even a bit of python in there! If I have some constructive feedback, I would ask the speaker to not sway from side to side so much while speaking, but maybe this was just the cider :) Really enjoyed it!
Having seen an iteration of this talk before, I only paid attention to the new bits really, but it was informative, and a bit of an open forum at the end to open up some discussion.
A fun and cool project; although there were a few slight hitches, it was a decent proof of concept and provided a good explanation of where the failure points were - a nice introduction to electronics for programmers, and provides inspiration for future Pi projects.
Fun, informative, slightly chaotic (in a good, amusing way), and mildly inspiring to get a Pi to do something with this GPIO thing, except I have no idea what I'd actually do with it still >.<
An interesting expansion on the role of FIG, lots of discussion created. Learned a bit about psr's and their uses and reasons for creation. I liked it.
Very interesting, definitely something I am interested in implementing and expanding on.
