So here is the story of why I’m going to Japan. I entered a Google Developer Day contest back in July. They had 8 different locations around the world, and hundreds of entries. Somehow, I scored perfect on their round 1 questionnaire, then a week later, they accepted my entry for an idea I proposed using the Android and their new Arduino ADK. The idea is a wait time system using clipboards and RFIDs, I’m calling it www.escapethewait.com… more on that after I present it in Tokyo. Google sent me an Arduino ADK and are giving me a booth at the conference.
Here is my name as a finalist- Google ADK Finalist
I have a 5 minute presentation after the ADK talk, as well as a booth to show off the idea.
GDD Agenda Tokyo
To say the least, I am thrilled for the opportunity and a little nervous.
Wish me luck! I’ll be back November 8th.
