Attendees at the LACM site work on personal projects and modify the firmware of their badges in this pop-up “hackerspace”
The Hackaday Superconference took plate this past weekend in Pasadena California. It was a highly successful event with attendees from as far away as Adelaide, Australia, and Shenzhen, China. Hackaday organized presentations, workshops, soldering contests, and a buffet of food that kept attendees happy, informed, and well-fed.
The Hackaday convention is unique among electrical engineering events in that it is an extremely inclusive event. The crowd is composed of various skill levels that range from expert to “noob” and you’ll see everything from robots built out of a cereal-box chassis to multi-axis robot arms capable of 10-micron repeatable positioning. Some folks are making their first printed circuit board while others are experienced engineers with several dozen designs under their belts.
The Official 2019 Hackaday Supercon Badge has an FPGA that users are encouraged to program and hack.
That’s it for this update. You can find plenty of resources, videos, pictures, and articles about the superconference over at https://hackaday.com/tag/supercon/
