💬 Gordon Williams - Zero to Hardware in 30 Minutes 💬

In a world where our consumer devices are developed by huge corporations with 9 figure budgets, creating your own hardware product to sell can seem completely out of reach.

In this talk Gordon will show you how you can create a prototype, program the device and an app with JavaScript, design a manufacturable circuit board, design and 3D print a case, and get it manufactured in quantity - in 30 minutes. There will be demos along the way as well.

💬 Ben Foxall - An alternative to JSON & REST 💬

We'll explore Protocol Buffers & gRPC as a way of serving content to your front-end code. We'll dive into some of the technical features and tooling, as well as chatting through some architectural differences to help you choose whether a service-based API approach would be a good fit with your current or future web projects.

If I find time to hack up some demos before this talk - then we'll check out those as well!
