Week 3: 15.10.17 – 21.10.17
Well, this week has seen a fairly busy week by making sure I have enough electronics for creating the quick reaction game kits, getting a RaspiKidd t-shirt printed ready for MozFest. I have also been working on the presentation for my session which has to be complete by Monday the 23rd. I am just waiting to see if the PiZero EduBlocks problems are solved before the deadline. If not rather than following my plan of live coding the Quick reaction game with the participants I will just be adding the code to the presentation.
The reason I was going to use a PiZero for the coding is that I can have it plugged into my computer through USB and have the PiZero act as an on the the go Ethernet device. Basically, I can log into the PiZero through VNC viewer using raspberry pi.local rather than having to find out what the IP address is. Also, the PiZero can share the laptop internet connection. It’s always good to have a plan B and maybe even a plan C.
Again this has not been a very short update. Next week is the week leading up to MozFest. I will probably write a quick update on the week while travelling to London on the train on Thursday. I have not decided how I’m going to blog about the weekend yet. My options are trying to find time at the end of every day and do a round up after or do a longer post after the weekend. (probably on the train back to Scotland lol) If you guys have a preference for this I would love to hear them in the comments.
As well as blogging about the whole festival I will also do a post on how well I think my session went.
That’s all for this week. Come back next week for the final part of the Road To MozFest.
