Sadly, didn't make it to the semifinals. I knew I wouldn't be making it to the top 10 or even the top 50, but gave myself a 50-50 chance of making it to the next level.
On the plus side, I am getting a free T-Shirt, which was basically the reason I signed up in the first place. I'll chalk this one up to a win.
Right now I'm still getting used to development on the Arduino platform, it's kinda like having training wheels, in some ways limiting but in some ways simplifying. I've got the basics of key clicks and LED outputs and will hopefully be moving on to the analog thumb sticks and keyboard output for the basic chords by the weekend.
