Pictures from the Hackaday LA Siperconference 2017

  Saturday I was able to spend few hours at the Hackaday Superconference LA 2017 . The event started Friday afternoon and continued until Sunday evening, but I was able to stay only about half day as Visuino needed more attention.
The Conference also featured a cool PIC32 based Hackable Badge with built in camera and OLED screen:


And a bag full of goodies some of them shown on the pictures here:
 

And me being a Software Developer, I jumped into battle mode with one of my Visuino Programmed Kuman Robots, as soon as I saw a HexBug :-D
You can see a video of me getting the bug on Twitter:
Visuino Robt vs. HexBug

A good Conference starts with seamless Registration:
 

And getting a cool Conference T-Shirt:

All the locations were packed:
 

And so was the Hacking and Workshop tents area:
 

 

And how can you have Hackaday, without Pirates :-) :

 

I had a chance to do a small demo of programming Robots with Visuino:

I did this tutorial:

And then showed few other Robot projects. I will post video tutorials for them soon!

And no Conference is complete without great food, and... Espresso!
 
 

All the way to the evening:

With never stopping hacking:
 

And Robot presentations (Including some of my robots on the left):
 

All culminating with a Night Party:
 

Featuring arcade games:
 


Even real old school Pinball and Pac-Man:
 

 

And me and my Visuino programmed Robots, just before leaving:
 

 

As expected this was a fantastic event organized by the great people of Hackaday, and Supplyframe , and I am looking forward to be at the next SoperCon, and hopefully to have more time to spend there next time :-)

Cheers,
  Boian

Looks Like a great time, Boian. The one guy looks like he jumped out of an Alexander Dumas novel....lol.

Thank you Adrian Gall. I think they were going for Pirates look :-D

Yes Boian, he missed the mark to look like old "Red Beard", but he
could pass for D'Artagnan or Porthos. Good try though ! :-}
