Introducing Intelu00ae Edison

Presenter

Intelu00ae Edison technology packs a robust set of features into its small size -- delivering great performance, durability, and a broad spectrum of I/O and software support. Those versatile features help meet the needs of a wide range of makers and pro-makers. Jim will provide an introduction to using Linux* with the Intel Edison technology's hardware, software, and cloud capabilities. In addition, he will outline how the new Intel Edison board, paired with a number of expansion boards, can support the thousands of ideas on the cusp of being invented.



Learn to prototype projects and applications with the LaunchPad Ecosystem

Presenter

The LaunchPad Ecosystem from Texas Instruments allows makers to rapidly prototype projects and applications using affordable modular hardware powered by TI technology. TI has one of the largest portfolios of embedded processing, analog, and wireless integrated circuits and you can use LaunchPad to start evaluating these parts for your next project. The Energia IDE allows makers to quickly create code to run on the LaunchPads and drive BoosterPack plug-in modules. Quickly add WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, sensors, displays, LEDs, and more to your LaunchPad project to create demonstrations of home automation, motor control, and dynamic lighting.

Spread Code the Brooklyn Way

Presenter

Momo Akade, a Brooklyn-native, former teacher and lifelong maker, is the founder of Gigabryte, a platform that introduces kids to programming through wearable electronics. She created GigaBryte to help close the racial and ethnic divide in the field of computing. Momo was lucky enough to grow up in Brooklyn in the 80s and 90s, when Hip Hop music and fashion exploded on the scene. In this presentation, she'll pay homage to the MCs, DJs, graffiti artists, and break dancers who shaped her early identity as a maker, as well as to the sneakerhead kids she taught who inspired her to develop new pathways into STEAM.
