Random Tech Stuff Day @ v01d

2016-01-24

We're planning an event for v01d members to 'mutually show off' what we're working on and possibly to recruit new members. This event will consist of 4 talks/workshops by v01d members concerning whatever they are working on at the moment.

For my part, I'll be talking about technical details of mechanical keyboards (including two different keyboards for people to try out), people making their own keyboards and keyboard-centric UIs (from Vim and inspired UIs to keyboard-heavy RTS UIs).

Basic outline of the event, as announced on the gamedev meetup a few days ago:
