In episode 10 of the Teardown Sessions, Crowd Supply’s Helen Leigh sits down with Ben Hencke, LED wizard and creator of the much beloved LED controller, PixelBlaze. Pixelblaze is a Wi-Fi-enabled, live-codable LED controller with a web-based development environment. Ben and Helen discuss wide-ranging topics, from manufacturing and design to live-coding with the Pixelblaze IDE.
You’ll also be treated to a gallery of compelling, weird, beautiful, and definitely shiny LED projects along with an equally dazzling display of live-coding. If blinkenlights are your jam, this is the Teardown Session for you!
In episode 9 of the Teardown Sessions, Crowd Supply’s Helen Leigh chats with Straithe, open source technical community manager at Great Scott Gadgets. Straithe shares her knowledge about technical documentation, managing pull requests, social media engagement, and building community in open hardware.
