Making old electronics new again ...with JavaScript!

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.
