    9/15/2014– Updates

    We’re hiring

    We miss our summer interns– seven people is too few for our grand plans! Check out tessel.io/jobs if you think you can help fill the hole in our hearts.

    Progress report

    Here’s what we’ve been up to lately: * Bug fixes and feature requests, as always. See the changelogs here. * Prep for conference/hackathon season: there should be Tessel hardware to borrow at most of Major League Hacking’s hackathons, and we’re speaking and providing hardware at a number of to-be-announced conferences. * Improved internal testing infrastructure: we’re working on a continuous integration server that automatically runs a suite of tests on every PR through Tessel and merges if acceptable. * Added contribution labels to Github issues to make it easier to contribute– see details here. * Added Tessel Packs to the store: bundles of modules for specific applications, such as the Hackathon Pack. * Reached out to a lot of customers for feedback– we love to hear your feedback, so much so that Jon spent a lot of time last week individually emailing customers to hear their thoughts. If you have anything to share, please let us know! * Made a meetup group in the Bay Area and held our first couple of events. * Got LuaJIT running some JS scripts.

    Meeting up

    Hardware is more fun in person– want to start a meetup group in your area at the intersection of hardware and web development? Reach out to kelsey@technical.io for support and ideas– and we’ll cover your meetup fees. Check out our group as an example.


    We’ve been watching projects roll in, as well. Here are a few picks: * Tessel + Auth0 authentication * Neopixel animation over websockets * A ring level using accelerometer + Neopixels * A Meteor.js temperature monitoring dashboard

    Do you have a Tessel project you’ve been working on? Please post!

    Until next time,
    Kelsey, Tim, Ken, Eric, Jon, Jia, and Kevin
