This talk is is for Python developers who would like to get started with hardware hacking but have been too intimidated in the past to do so. Also, it's for people who like dogs and/or selfies.
Using a Raspberry Pi, Python, Twilio, and a big red button, I taught my dog to text selfies. In this talk, which features 25 minutes of live coding, we'll build the hardware hack from scratch. Developers will walk away knowing how to use Python to interact with Twilio and the Raspberry Pi's GPIO pins.
A video of this hack was featured on Mashable and was watched over 2.5M times.
