Happy New Year everyone! Here’s to fresh start. We’re kicking the year off in style with a great talk from Rachel Weil!
Rachel will share a selection of personal projects that bring vintage electronics into the 21st century with Node.js and hobbyist microcontrollers. She’ll also cover some of the basic tools and approaches to getting started with refurbishing, refitting, and reworking old game consoles, computers, and digital toys.
In other big news, Spredfast is now the official location for AustinJS! The
Spredfast team has always been kind to share their
space with us, so we look forward to making more memories going forward. Thanks
data.world will provide food and drink, so make sure tell them thanks!
- Where: Spredfast — 200 West Cesar Chavez Street — 3rd Floor of the Silicon Labs building on Colorado

Afterwards, the discussion carries on a few blocks away at Lavaca Street Bar where they have food, drinks, and 12 revolving taps.
