Aragna From UCPLA Has Received The Package

We had a meeting to go over all of the content and have Aragna set everything up to be sure it was all working. While we did have everything he needed in the box, I soon discovered that I should have labeled all of the cables.

Our goal for the final version is to eliminate all of the cables.

Another lesson learned was that I should have double checked the address before shipping. At second glance I would have noticed that the address was missing some information (apt #). Even so we lucked out and the package was still delivered in time for our meeting.

Also, I need to do better at tacking screen shots during a session.

Trying to Demo over a Web Meeting 

Other than the slight confusion of which cables to use where (The joysticks came with three USB-C cables), The demo went well. Once challenge when showing a demo is trying to align the camera to give your viewers a good view of the items you are using.

One way we were able to kind of work around that was by having me screen share my remote connection to the display unit. That way the team could see what the device was doing as Aragna was testing it out.

Over all I say it was a success!

We already have a meeting lined up with our first user this Monday.
