Hacking HardwareDonald Belcham
So you’re looking for achallenge
LoB is boring
Game dev is slavery
Mobile dev is fragmented
Paying dev work isuninspired
So….
What are we after?
Challenge?
Problem solving?
“Freshness”?
Change?
But how and where?
Makers
Working closer to themetal
Not hardware….
….hardware components
Arduino Uno
$24.75
16 mhz
32kb Flash Memory(0.5kb reserved for bootloader)
2kb SRAM
6 analog14 digital
Java-esqueprogramming language
Everything runsinside a loop
Small programs
With small footprints
Smarter firstproject options
Sump pit water levelwarning device
Digital BBQthermometer
Automated bartender
How do youget stuck in?
