2018-10-19 (F) Weekly Summary

Next weekend will be the IoT Hack Day where my team will program a giant spinning fish game.

We also ran into a previous teammate who enlisted with Team Magnet Fish Spectacular. Doug has been mention a few times on this blog in the past. Angeliki is this year’s team captain.
