I recently presented a talk at the Spain.js conference and I spent a long time (a long, long time) making my slides. Then I realized that while it was a good slide deck for the presentation, it was nearly useless without me accompanying it. Since the talk was not recorded :(, I reworked the slides completely to serve as a standalone deck.
I hope this is helpful to you! Special thanks to everyone that has helped me on my Maker journey so far – Jeff McAlvay, the OpenROVs, the Upverters, Lady Ada, and more. Super thanks to the organizers of Spain.js for inviting me to speak and to Manilla for sponsoring my travel.

speaker @christensenp is re-kindling my desire to learn hardware/electronics. You’re never too old to start, right? #spainjs
