Calling all would-be #IntelMakers! New getting started resource if you like watching videos more than reading.
 
A series of video walk-through for getting started with #Intel #Edison are up.  These are the videos that we're using to get people started at the Intel Iot Roadshow.

Thanks to +Pearl Chen for producing these #intelmaker http://blogs.intel.com/evangelists/2015/03/18/intel-edison-walkthrough-videos-on-idz/

I had a lot of fun mentoring at UofTHacks (University of Toronto's student-run hackathon) last weekend with my colleagues from Intel Canada and +Mashery.

We brought 40 Edisons for students to hack on and the Intel help desk was buzzing the entire 3 days. My throat was sore from talking to so many people!

Check out some of the fun projects created in the Mashery recap: http://masherydev.tumblr.com/post/110254988892/uofthacks-2015

And there's also a short recap video: https://twitter.com/intelcanada/status/563829044643254272

Are you a developer advocate/evangelist for a hardware-based platform? I'd like to interview you. 

Please share.

ICYMI, I'm doing research interviews on what makes a great developer experience. If you, or someone you know, works in developer outreach for a hardware-centric platform, let's talk !

I've already chatted with the folks behind Pebble, Electric Imp, Tessel, and Wattage to name a few. 

If you're curious, these are the questions I'm asking in my first round of research: go.klab.ca/devrelquestions. Same questions, but many different answers.
