Come and make your own chat + twitter bot (and possibly play with some JS robotics. We do love hardware, after all).
We'll be featuring presentations, demos and tutorials by bot makers. All experience levels are welcome! Newbies will be able to get their feet wet right away.
Intermediate + experienced folks are highly encouraged to attend! Get some inspiration for your next project, share your knowledge & enjoy a fun afternoon of bots, hacks & snacks.
Stay tuned for more details regarding speakers + tutorial offerings!
If you would like to show off your own projects or give a brief tutorial on your preferred tools + processes, please be in touch with Shayna!
