Have you always wanted to create hardware devices to interact with the real world? When you attend this workshop you will: set up an Arduino board and software; learn how the Arduino fits into the field of physical computing; and make your Arduino respond to button presses and blink lights. Hardware is fun!
Note: Cost of the kit (USD $57) is included in the registration price for this tutorial.
This talk is for technical leaders and managers who want their companies to do more in open source. I will give you a CC-licensed presentation template and techniques for explaining open source business models, communities, licensing, and contribution processes to executives and lawyers in your company. You can then customize this for your own company and make the pitch for more OSS involvement.

With growing use of computers in schools, tightening district budgets, evolving learning objectives, and the plethora of available applications, it makes sense to leverage open source software to support public education. Hear of the tales of a hacker turned teacher as he uses a variety of purely open source tools and techniques to enhance math and computer education in an alternative setting.
This new open source library is based concepts first described in
Jeff Hawkins' book On Intelligence and subsequently developed by
Numenta Inc. NuPIC consists of a set of machine learning algorithms
that accurately model layers of neurons in the neocortex. NuPIC's
algorithms continuously learn temporal patterns, make predictions,
and detect anomalous behavior within streaming data.
Everyone wins when everyone is smarter, so why is it so difficult to share and collaborate on teaching materials? Attend this session to see how having your courseware and other teaching materials stored in Git and on GitHub allows students to stay in touch, learn collaboratively, extract more knowledge, and potentially even give back to the course materials.
Time has changed since the start of Open Source. Companies has now
started to understand that they can use open source without having to

Open source software can avoid software design patterns that evolved to facilitate software development in a proprietary world.
The JOBS act will change the rules for public offerings of stock, making the crowdfunding of stock sales legal.
This will allow Open Source developers and makers to create new technology companies by leveraging their existing communities for initial funding.
Join us to discuss what we know, and what we don't about this new funding option.
