23 Superconference Talks You Shouldn’t Miss

November marked our inaugural Hackaday Superconference, something we’ve been wanting to do for a very long time. Hackaday already has a massive and vibrant online community, but until now, we haven’t asked people to come together for a hardware conference that spans a full weekend. The Supercon is Hackaday incarnate, and hundreds of very cool people showed up for a few dozen talks, amazing workshops, and a lot more.

Over the past month, we’ve been putting together a compilation of everything that happened at the first Hackaday Superconference. This includes videos of all the talks, relevant asides, and posts for everything that happened over a two-day conference. Even if you couldn’t make it out to our first con, this great material that should be shared by all.

Below is a YouTube playlist of all the talks. If you’re looking for eight hours to kill over the holiday weekend, well, there you have it. After the break is the complete conference indexed by day and speaker, with links to the talk and accompanying Hackaday post.

We’d like to thank everyone who came out to the first Hackaday Supercon, with a huge shout-out to the speakers, workshop organizers, and volunteers. It couldn’t have happened without the full support of the Hackaday community. That’s good, because we’re going to be doing this again next year.

  1. I love all of these talks, but just one thing for the upcoming supercon, almost all of these talks above has some ‘preparation’ time before the speaker actually begin his/her slide. It seems that the speakers didn’t know how to use the remote and having some problems when starting the slide. I want a seamless one. But overall I really enjoyed these, thanks to supplyframes for supplying these..

    1. In all the presentations I’ve seen so far, I’ve also noticed that when the speaker is referring to the slide, the video shows the speaker rather than the slide. Not seeing what they are referring to as they are speaking about it makes the presentation harder to understand.

      Consider showing the slide full frame, with the speaker in a window in a corner or side. Switch to the speaker on the stage full frame sparingly (<25%).

      There's a reason university course videos emphasize the slide rather than the speaker.
