Join us Wednesday at noon Pacific time for the From Software to Tindie Hack Chat!
Brian Lough has followed a roundabout but probably not unusual route to the hardware hacking scene. Educated in Electronic and Computer Engineering, Brian is a software developer by trade who became enamored of Arduino development when the ESP8266 hit the market. He realized the microcontrollers such as these offered incredible capabilities on the cheap, and the bug bit him.
Since then, Brian has fully embraced the hardware hacking way, going so far as to live stream complete builds in a sort of collaborative “hack-along” with his viewers. He’s also turned a few of his builds into legitimate products, selling them on his Tindie store and even going so far as to automate testing before shipping to catch errors and improve quality.
Please join us for this Hack Chat, where we’ll discuss:
- How software hacking leads to hardware hacking;
- The creative process and how live streaming helps or hinders it;
- The implications of going from project to product; and
- What sorts of new projects might we see soon?
