Developing Tessel 2
Latest Tessel boards from our manufacturer! We had fifteen new Tessel 2 boards come in this shipment. 13 of these worked out of the box, and the last two were brought online with a small amount of manufacturing rework and firmware tweaks. Left to test in this batch: evaluate that all 10-pin modules operate correctly on the new boards (finishing our API implementation in the process), as well as writing more comprehensive tests for our test rig. Barring any surprises, we’ll be able to witness our next manufacturing run of Tessels in China in person!
Zac Colley made a new community module! Connect a thermal printer to Tessel using the
tessel-thermalprinter module. Includes configuration for different typefaces and barcodes.

Tessel around the world:
SAP held a Tessel CodeJam in the Netherlands. Microsoft Azure held an IoT hackathon in Stockholm. Tessel was at WearHacks Paris, a wearables + IoT hackathon. Wouter Verweirder presented Node on hardware at Hookedfest in Belgium.
In our next issue, we’ll have a progress update on our manufacturing timeline, as well as several new tools to get started developing for Tessel 2. Follow us on our blog, or on Twitter at @technicalhumans. Enjoy your week! — The Tessel Team
