Mayday Heyday Recap
So, MAYDAY HEYDAY was a blast! Big thanks to all of you who came out to see what we’re up to, and to get a feel for the whole complex. If you were there, you know – there’s a lot of something special going on at the Attractor, and we’re so excited to have you involved with it too! The afternoon’s festivities did not disappoint in the slightest. The music was bouncy, the food was delicious, the interest was up, and most of all – people learned things.
Guy Mann ran a LOLcode demonstration, showing the average person the basic structure of a program in an entertaining and fun way. It’s one thing to declare a variable, it’s another thing to say “I CAN HAZ $var.” Definitely entertaining. :)
On the hardware side of things, I had a ball showing people how to make LED throwies – introducing them to the basics of electronic circuits and showing them clever uses for simple components. And the whole place was littered with tiny points of light later on. :)
All in all, we had a lovely time seeing everyone, and very much look forward to more events like these in the future!
