Live coding sounds really scary, but it’s a fear worth conquering. To show how fun it can really be, Suz Hinton rolls the dice and live-codes an entertaining hardware solution in front of your eyes. To make things interesting, she’ll start with some randomly assigned inputs and outputs. The challenge is to have a working set of code inside 10 minutes that completes the assigned mission. Join in to find out if Suz has what it takes.
