This week, we had three special contest announcements! In the first half of the broadcast, we spoke about several contests which will take place in many places around the world, and how YOU can get involved. We were joined by representatives from each one of these contests who outline the rules and submission deadlines as well as the giveaways and prizes that come along with your participation! The second half of the hour was dedicated to general 96Boards discussion and community Q&A. We event enjoyed a demo from one of our community leaders, Timothy Thomas who shared a very cool Arduino demo he had been working on.
Please take some time to watch the video below, and don’t forget to tune in for the next OpenHours - Follow the countdown here
