Tech Talk on DIY Light Shows
What would it take for a techie — or really anyone who’s handy with appliances and/or curious about electrical engineering — to build their own light show synced to their favorite music? Not much. Just a couple hundred LEDs, a raspberry pi and a dynamite playlist! The rest can be learned at Fortego U’s virtual Tech Talk on DIY Light Shows hosted by Ryan Green. This event is an open opportunity for anyone, no matter your experience or skill level, to come out and have fun learning about tech and enjoy watching a few on-screen light show demos. It’s virtual, it’s free and it’s BYOB. Here’s the details.
