The annual Yahoo Open Hack day is back and this year it is going to happen on 30th and 31st of July.
This hackday is special for me, for a couple of reasons.
Update: Here are the photos
And the second reason is that, we are going to have hardware hacks during the event. Yes you read it right 🙂 This time we are planning to have tech talks about hardware and let people do hardware hacks as well.
Regular readers of my blog would know that I hack around hardware (especially Arduino) as a hobby and you could understand my excitement.
I am also going to give a talk on Arduino and Android ADK and will be demoing some of the hacks which I have created using them.
If this hasn’t convinced you, then there is more. Yahoo is also going to sponsor 50% price for the hardware that you need for hacking. Yes, you read it right again. 😉 We have arranged this offer with 9 Circuits. Head over to the Open hackday wiki to get more details about it.
See you guys at Open Hack day next weekend.
Will I be able to get Android ADK board at the venue?? Looks like its available only for pre-order now from 9Circuits. Do you have any idea about the availability of it? Or, do you recommend us to get Arduino Mega and USB shield separately??
Yes, you can get ADK at the venue. The boards have been reserved as a priority to Yahoo Open Hackday. You can book yours online, as you do for other boards and sensors.
Is there a Yahoo hack for Amazon’s Nook? I find that their browser is not too bad but I was wondering if there was an app to access Yahoo without using the browser. It would be easier for me to check emails and students’ reports that way.
