LayerOne is May 25th-28th in Pasadena, California and we want to see you there! The LayerOne information security conference began back in 2004. This conference brings a diverse selection of speakers and topics to a single place. There’s a focus on technology, but also the social impact of things like networking, hardware, cryptography, and much more.
Supplyframe, Tindie’s parent company, is proud to support both the 2018 LayerOne conference this year and the wonderful community of makers who attend. Supplyframe’s annual sponsorship of LayerOne goes back to 2015, and has included sponsored the electronic badges for the event each year.
Last year’s badge was an incredible creation that featured enough computing power to emulate games, hack CAN bus, and even included a 2.4″ LCD screen. It sold out quickly on Tindie, so we are all eager to see what design they come up with for this year’s badge! Tickets are on sale now, with several options for various workshops being held at the conference in addition to general admission.
If you can’t make it this year, all of the talks will be uploaded to the LayerOne YouTube channel. You can also view talks from prior years as well. We hope to see you there!
The 2018 Demoscene Party
A big part of LayerOne is the annual demoscene party. Each year, competitors are challenged to utilize a LayerOne Demoscene Board which places a number of constraints on the code size, memory, and processor speed. Given this canvas, they create an output of audio and video that pushes the limits of what is possible with the hardware.
Anyone with an interest in C, assembly, graphics, or embedded systems programming should absolutely try their hand at this year’s competition. Remote entries are welcome for those who cannot make it in person.
The 2018 Demoscene Party begins Saturday, May 26th at 6:00PM in the Chillout Room.
This year’s LayerOne Demo Board, sold exclusively through Tindie, is a 16-bit PIC24F chip with 96K RAM, and 256K Flash/ROM. If you’re looking for inspiration, check out this video of last year’s demoparty:
