- NodeBots event: advertised as NodeBots Day and Robot Talent Show
- Around 20 people, in 6 teams, took up three tables at Ctrl-h.
- Attendees appreciated having a specific focus, and came up with a variety of more complex movements
- Led by @samrocksc, @mberka and Michael Cole assisting with electronics.
- Had ~8 Arduino Uno boards and a Nano, all flashed with StandardFirmataPlus firmware at the last moment. Difficulties using Arduino on Linux, @mberka used VSCode + PlatformIO.
Reflections, Improvements to be made
- Attendees liked the light-hearted custom certificates. Great work Sam and Michael!
- Minor technical challenges for some teams involving johnny-five and the node-bots-workshop tutorial.
- Feedback was very positive and attendees cleaned up after themselves thoroughly.
- Need to see whether anything longer-term can be done with the equipment.
