Hello everyone 👋
In two weeks I'll be presenting my Puck and Pixl, and will talk about Espruino in general.
Which is the most exciting news and topics I should mention in my 30 min presentation?
That's great! I don't know if it helps, but there are some talks I and others have given on a YouTube Playlist here
Things I usually include are:
If you wanted to give a demo, I can explain how to set up the Web IDE with a webcam as well?
Hope that's some help!
Wow! That's exactly what is needed. Thanks Gordon!
Going to watch them all. And thanks for the list. Very helpful!
What's the webcam setup if I have an Android phone and a Macbook? (I would want to show the Pixl display.)
Ideally you'd have an external webcam that you could point at the Pixl (unless you could use an external keyboard and angle your Mac to point at it?).
But then you go to the IDE, Settings, General, Webcam Icon -> Yes
If you're doing it on a white background you could choose to add 50% brightness to make it look a bit more vibrant. I also put the font size up to 24 or so so people can see it.
But then you just click the webcam icon on the left of the terminal and it'll show the webcam in the background of the terminal. Make sure you refresh the page as newer IDE versions stretch the webcam to fit the screen, which looks much better. If you've clicked in the terminal, Ctrl-F will also make it fullscreen in the window so you're not displaying the editor.
To add my 2 cents.
There are some non technical facts, which could be mentioned
This might be interesting - it's the usage of Espruino boards over time...
Such a nice community!
Thanks for the tips. I'll do my best (it's in 5 days btw).
No problem - I'm more than happy to help as it's great having anyone who is willing to spread the word about it :)
Hello! I talked about the devices 3 times already. Gonna do it again in 3 weeks.
Here's a recording of one of them.
If time permits, please tell me which mistakes I did and what can be improved.
@koresar Thank you for your presentation efforts on getting the 'Espruino' word out.
I liked the IDE demo 12:22 and interaction using a camera showing the Pixl and Puck and a quick overview 16:16 of debugger in action. Nicely Done!
Quick recovery 12:39: "Imagine it's focused" ;-)
Nice magic trick 35:53 Applause!!
Where are/were your presentations? City Country?
Wow, great! Maybe embedded JS work does turn you into a lumberjack...
Seems really good, and loads of demos packed in too! A few small things I noticed...
@koresar, 17:14 - you would have me repeating this 'whooooaaa' - from 4+ years ago, where I came across Espruino Original and dashed all my Arduino investments, hopes and dreams to return to something as great as Espruino!... and it took me 4 years to get a RaspyPi... just because I want to use it as a hub...
It's Sydney, Australia.
Thanks Gordon! I'll fix my slides and knowledge. That's exactly what I needed. 👍
Thanks for sharing! I'm open to all ideas to add to the talk.
Sorry to resurrect an old topic, but I'm also prepping for an Espruino talk (although sadly I'm gonna be using an ESP32 as shipping to Malaysia is a bit too expensive, and none of the local electronic shops sell official Espruino boards).
The webcam tip is something I didn't think of, but now I'm gonna have to incorporate in the talk :)
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
