This week I am San Francisco for meetings at Capgemini Group’s “Applied Innovation Exchange”. It’s a great new venue for us, which we will use to accelerate innovation with our customers.
While being in town, it’s easy to find interesting meetups and just show up to learn and meet really cool people. Yesterday evening, I went to Circuit Hacking Monday at Noisebridge. From their site: “Noisebridge is a hackerspace for technical-creative projects, doocratically run by our members. We are a non-profit educational institution intended for public benefit.”
Inspiring and friendly place. The evening was spent over breadboards, cutting wires, putting together integrated circuits, resistors, capacitors, and LEDs. Some participants were already very knowledgable and others had just begun their hardware hacking journey.
In these times of IoT and sensification, basic electronics is where it all starts. A blinking LED is the new “Hello world”. Thank you Jason and Noisebridge for a great evening!
