Tessel Community Survey
We’re researching the next direction for Tessel Project hardware, and we have six questions for you.
Help us out by telling us what the future of connected things should look like on this survey!
The Tessel Team (the Steering Committee and some of the Team Members) are meeting in person the first time at Tesselcamp next week.
The event will be a low-key three-day session in New York City for core community members to discuss vision, focus on key issues, and spend time together as a team.
The final day of Tesselcamp (Saturday, September 3) is a community day, in which members of the public are welcomed to use the hardware and expertise of the core Project members and get up to speed contributing to the Project. If you’re in the area, please come!
For those not in the area, we encourage you to spin your own “welcome to open source” themed events. Want to host one in your local community? Get in touch; we would be happy to help.
Nodebots Day Recap
We mentioned International Nodebots Day in the last newsletter, with a special mention of the Johnny-Five Inventor’s Kit as the kit of choice for a few of the event locations, like NYC and Miami. The Tessel 2 was also used to power Sumobots at Houston’s event, with a great recap by Justin Gosses.
Check out @nodebots on Twitter to see pictures and video from other events around the world!
