Node.js Hardware Hack Weekend

Node.js Hardware Hack Weekend on December 8-9, 2012, 10am - 5pm at Voxer in downtown San Francisco, CA.

An open collaboration for the Node.js community led by @dshaw.  Julian Gautier ( @jagautier) of Voxer and creator of the Firmata module will be joined by notable Node.js hardware experts including Emily Rose ( @nexxylove), Elijah Insua ( @tmpvar), and Jerry Sievert ( @jerrysievert) in addition to Mikeal Rogers ( @mikeal), Isaac Schlueter ( @izs), Max Ogden ( @maxogden), and  @substack.

Nexxy's going to kick off the weekend with an introduction of hardware hacking, then we will move into smaller groups to experiment with awesome tools and toys including arduino, raspberry pi, and #nodebots. There will likely be a #nodecopter or two that make an appearance.

This is not a hackathon. There will be no prizes other than the satisfaction of making something awesome! There will be very little in the way of talks. We're going to get together, collaborate and hack. This is more NodeConf SummerCamp than NodeConf. Sharing. Enjoying each other's company. Learning and exploring. And JavaScript. Lots of JavaScript.


  • BYOH: Bring your own hardware or bring something to share. Get in free.
  • Take It Home: $100 and you get to take home your own hardware kit.

Space is limited. Please register early so we can accurately gauge participation. We actually have to order physical stuff  and it takes time to get that fulfilled.
