Boise Code Camp

Just in case you didn’t hear the news, Boise Code Camp is this weekend. There are loads of sessions around Android and web development. I’ll be there showing off a Brain Computer Interface controlling a Quadcopter in my “Is Thought the Future of Wearable Input?” at 11:10 AM.

Head over to BoiseCodeCamp.com to get all the details. If you don’t have a ticket then you can probably still go, but will need to find your own food and won’t be eligible for the door prizes.
