First of all, yes, I’m aware of a really dumb bug in PiPlay 8 Beta 8. I’m going to release an update this weekend that should fix it. I don’t know how I let a release slide with a joystick bug, but I did, and I’m sorry.
I changed my Raspberry Pi battle station setup so that hopefully testing will be a bit easier.
On another note, this week at work has been amazing. One my applications was selected as a winner in an educational app challenge. My team won 3rd place. I am very proud! My team was also selected to present at the New Media Consortium on our work with Learning Tools. 😀
Have a good weekend all. I look forward to releasing the bug fix update.
Sorry for the late post. The past two days have been jam packed and I had limited internet access.
Friday and Saturday I was at Magic Ruby. It was a Ruby conference at the Walt Disney World Hollywood Studios park. I’m still decompressing from the conference, so I’m not ready to make a full review about it. Some talks were amazing, some were downright crappy. I’m just exhausted.
Right after the conference Friday night, I had to run straight to the FamiLAB Hacker Space in Longwood, Florida because they were hosting Eben and Liz from the Raspberry Pi foundation!
We spent the first part of the night hanging out with Eben and Liz, showing off our projects. Liz loved my arcade cabinet, and I need to get a kit out to her ASAP 🙂 Eben and Liz then did an interview with the Orlando Sentinel (as did I regarding my projects). After the interview, Eben did a presentation to a standing room only gathering of people regarding the Pi, as well as a QA from the audience. It was a great event!
Eben and Liz are both really humble and genuinely nice people. I’m really glad I was able to spend some time with them.
Also, on a side note, my little Color Picker test app for Windows 8 passed certification, and is now in the Windows App Store! Go me!
