HackWestern 2015

On the 27th of March, I got onto a bus heading west to Hack Western. This is the first student planned hackathon that I’ve attended (where I haven’t helped organize it), and it was amazing! There was a huge difference in being at a hackathon as a participant – it felt really weird having no […]

PodCamp Toronto

A few weeks ago, I was given the chance to do something I hadn’t expected to do – I was invited to speak at a Conference. The Podcamp Toronto Conference to be more precise.

Lego Robots!

While this isn’t a totally new idea, it’s something I worked on for a lab in class, and it’s a project that I really liked working on. Enter: Lego Robot Scanner. Our task in this lab was to create a “robot” that would emit sounds whenever the scanner picked up a change in colour from […]
