Embedded Linux Meets FPGA Capes—Just Imagine the DIY Possibilities!

Presenter

BBot! A remote controlled robot that talks, sees and serves drinks at the pool! And is hilarious! This open source robot design is based on the BeagleBone Black micro embedded Linux computer and has a low cost FPGA cape attached. Embedded Linux coupled with an FPGA can dramatically augment any DIY electronics design - the possibilities are practically endless when these two technologies are combined. We'll be discussing this robot's software and hardware architecture as well as highlight some of the amazing capabilities of such a platform! Come learn about these two affordable and important next generation DIY technologies!

How to Teach Programming to Children

Presenter

Silicon Valley executives, politicians, and makers are calling for children to "code.," but what does that mean? Web sites have been created based on the assumption that self-selecting kids will teach themselves. Such an approach leaves too much to chance and assures inequitable opportunity. A presenter with 30+ years of experience will explore the how, what, and why of teaching computer science to children in a developmentally appropriate fashion so they learn a lot more than how to code. We will discuss appropriate languages for learning, pedagogical strategies and programming projects for the screen and outside of the computer.
