Is it too early to have been thinking about NodeBots day?

Apr 02 2015 11:09
nope! We had a chat about summer of hacks yesterday - early days, but reckon it's going to be great

Was thinking of contacting some device manufacturers like tessel and esrurino.
The esrurino is Oxford based so might be able to get them to come along :wink:

Oli forwarded this email today:

You may have seen we just launched Tessel 2– I wanted to reach out and see if Nodebots London (or any of the various other meetups you do) is interested in pre-ordering some boards! Let me know and I'll see about a deal for you.

Could get on that - though would be good to get sponsorship sorted first

@benfoxall was planning to do it like now, but getting a new job and buying a house have got in the way
Marcus Noble

Apr 02 2015 11:25
Yeah sponsorship would be good. Unless any of the manufacturers want to?

@AverageMarcus, @spikeheap is writing up a thing for SoH as a whole so we can contact potential sponsors with it (makes it easier to do it all together like last year). If you have any ideas of who to contact with it - would be ace.
@omgmog Ah! I thought that job spec sounded a bit like your replacement - where are you off to?

Gordon Williams, the man behind esprurino, would be good. Oxford based and launching a new device that runs JS

@AverageMarcus espruino sounds AWESOME, and being Oxford-based it JUST FITS :+1:
@omgmog, we could help with sushack 3
as long as it was mid-august :)
Ben Foxall
@benfoxall
Apr 02 2015 11:32
ha. I was totally trying to say that in a cooler way.
but yeah - if you were up for fitting it around/in SoH - we could totally push it at the events

We could help get sponsorship as well if it’s not all covered by 2degrees - if it helps take some things off your (what sounds to be very full) plate
Last year’s sushack was awesome, I’d be psyched to help make it happen again

@benfoxall will be working for Aris (a company that make online casino games), based in Littlemore -- "UX developer" role, leading their front-end. And buying a house in Banbury
@spikeheap that would be cool, when @lurst is back from Portugal maybe we could all talk about it. 2degrees might still be alright with hosting, but I'll have to find out; if not I'd be up for moving to a new hack day that's more general, rather than sustainability themed
my current busy timeline is: starting new job on 18th may, probably moving house some time in may, so any time after then should be good.
I didn't realise Espruino was oxford-based? Waiting for my Pico to arrive from the KS!

Apr 02 2015 11:59
Yeah mine too! :D
Pretty excited about it

Max Glenister
@omgmog
Apr 02 2015 12:00
