Nick Hehr - Bringing Empathy to Hardware (Node + Tessel 2)

Getting started with hardware used to require a computer science or electrical engineering degree, but now there are so many options for hobbyists and makers with a background in JavaScript and the web! The Tessel 2, along with the open-source project behind it, has made this process even more approachable and inclusive for anyone wanting to get started with building web-connected hardware projects. In this talk, Nick will dive into how he discovered the Tessel, how he joined its wonderful community, and ultimately started helping guide the future of the project as a member of the steering committee.
