Anyone else start a thread on who is going to the Expo in July in TN?


I am planning on attending this year! First one. Can help out where needed!

Please tell me you are leading a class on scripts within FPP?  If not, would love to spend some time with you while there (as I'm sure others would).  This will be our 3rd year in a row attending.

This is just my opinion/suggestion/viewpoint.  Others with other viewpoints/experiences may have different advice.  I am a hobbyist with a couple years real world experience, not an expert.

I will be happy to help out where it is needed. I have teaching experience for technology topics. Those that have taught classes before, and are FPP focused, what do I need to do to help?

I'm going but only for one day (Friday).   Would love to hear some good FPP teaching!

If you want to help out in an official capacity you'll need to reach out to the organizers:

I think that past post was for the other Jon. But I'll be there too. Jeff and I are teaching 6 vixen classes this year.
We're also looking forward to all of the face to face time with the other dev teams in the hobby to see how we can work together to keep pushing the state of the art forward.

I'm in...I'll be flying in on Wednesday night and taking off late Friday night.

Can't wait to meet everyone and exchange ideas/learn new concepts.

If you are interested in teaching you have to fill out some kind of a proposed class form on the website and see if it gets accepted.  If so you get free admission.  but a little birdie told me that there are only one or two class opening left to fill and that was at least a week ago.

If anyone can bring an extra working BBB and Octo or Pi3 and matrix adapter that would be great. My BBB has been causing me problems.

I am bringing a BBB with the Dan Kulp software installed on my 4x4.  I will also have a BBG as backup to my BBB on the 4x4.  It has been tested and configured for my 4x4 but could be repurposed.
