Hey guys, Gordon Williams (of Espruino fame) is keen to get involved for NodeBots, and can lend us a few Espruinos with bluetooth on so we could do something like http://www.espruino.com/Bluetooth+Robot, potentially with some line following or maze traversing stuff. I’ve been looking at chassis and I think we could grab them on eBay for ~£10 per kit. I’ll drop this on the issue once it’s a little more confirmed, but things are looking positive :)

AMAZING! :D
I've been playing with my new Pico and I love it!
Is he going to come along?
Ryan Brooks

He almost certainly is :)

On a similar note, if anyone can think of JavaScript-related companies you’d like to see us get stickers/t-shirts/swag from let me know, I’ve been on a bit of a sponsorship-seeking binge this week

you want a list here or on an issue?
Ryan Brooks

Apr 15 2015 13:08
Probably on here or in an email. I tend to keep sponsorship stuff a bit quiet until it’s confirmed, just so it doesn’t look like we’re pressuring them and shaming people who’ve turned us down.

Cool. I hope to look at integrating the meetup stuff into the build step at some point this week
Sat if I don't get any time after work.

Oh that reminds me. I want to have a mess around with OxBot and add meetup stuff to him/her

@benfoxall set him/her up so probably knows about

I've taken a little look at the repo.

oxbot automatically deploys from master - takes a couple of minutes usually - shove any scripts you want in there

ace. That's jsoxbot deploys hooked up to the gitter activity stream now - hopefully it'll say something useful if things fail

@AverageMarcus do you want to press the "announce" button on meetup? Dunno if you're waiting for more description from @peterjwest

Go for it!

by the way - matthew said that the font was on google fonts if we want to use it for the other copy
Ryan Brooks
@spikeheap
Apr 15 2015 20:23
Awesome, I think we do
We thought it would make sense to create a SoH org so we can curate the hack outcomes there and potentially push it as a “you should organise one like this in your city” kind of thing
It’s still TOTALLY JSOxford though

I’m still working on copy for the site, but if anyone has a bit of time this week to help make it look swish and fancy that would be amazing.

@spikeheap Try having 6 beams coming from the sun instead of 8 - it'll look a bit like the node logo.
I am soo artistic on my tablet :P
