Come Demo your Cool Robotics, Microcontroller, or other Hardware Hacking at MADExpo

Pete Brown - 24 March 2011

The mid-Atlantic community has come together to create an awesome developer-oriented family event for June 30 and July 1, 2011: the Mid Atlantic Developer Expo.


Yes, I said family-oriented. We'll have a great expo area with demos of interesting hardware hacking, robotics and other cool things from both inside and outside the Microsoft development community, many of which will be great to share with the kids.

I'm helping coordinate the hardware hackery type stuff. That includes the proposed sessions as well as the demos in the demo hall.

In addition to the demo/expo hall, we have room for sessions too, so come and speak about your Netduino or Arduino or FEZ Panda or CNC machine or other interesting and cool robotics and microcontroller and general hardware hacking topics. Hacked a Kinect to interface with a Commodore 64? Bring it! Bonus points for bringing gear to demo! All levels are welcome, from beginner to uber-maker. Submit your session ideas here!

Including the topics I've mentioned, we're looking for speakers to cover the spectrum:

  • Web Development
  • Database Development
  • Client Development
  • Hardware Hacking and Microcontroller Programming
  • Natural User Interface (NUI) Development
  • Agile and Best Practices
  • Open Source Development
  • Beginner Topics
  • Robotics
  • Portal and Content Management System administration and development
  • Infrastructure management and development

Don't worry if your topic of choice isn't shown...we're open to suggestions beyond the list above, so any development-related topic is fair game.

  • Interested in submitting a session? Visit here.
  • Interested in demoing something awesome (or interesting, or nuts) on the expo floor? Contact me.
  • Can't demo in-person, but have samples or demonstration units you want to ship down for demos? Contact me.

So come down and attend. Demo if you can. Speak if you can. Definitely bring the family and enjoy Virginia Beach, which is beautiful this time of year
