  • Kansas City Convention Center

    301 West 13th Street, Kansas City, MO (map)

  • Worldcon, or more formally the World Science Fiction Convention, the annual convention of the World Science Fiction Society (WSFS), is a science fiction convention. It has been held each year since 1939 (except for the years 1942 to 1945, during World War II). The members of each Worldcon are the members of WSFS, and vote both to select the site of the Worldcon two years later, and to select the winners of the annual Hugo Awards, which are presented at each convention.
    I've never personally attended a WorldCon before, but as it's one of the largest science fiction literature conventions of the year, and takes place in a different city each year, I feel that I must attend it when it's right here in my city. If you're planning on attending, RSVP and we can work out times and places to meet in the comments.

    • Building your First IoT Project
      So you've written hello world (blinked an LED) a hundred times with your Raspberry Pi or other IoT device, you've read books and endless blog posts, been super excited about projects you've seen on Instructables or, but still don't have the confidence to jump in and make your first REAL IoT project.  We'll go over some ideas for good starter projects, and build one from start to finish!
      Speaker: Adam Barney (@cabarney)
      Adam is a nerd. That kept me humble and nearly friendless (*sniff*) through school, but I wear it as a badge of honor now. After buying a Commodore 64 with money from his paper route in the 4th grade, he’s never stopped learning about computers and how to make these stupid machines do cool things. I am a Microsoft C# MVP and ASP Insider, running my independent consulting company from my home in Lincoln, NE. In my spare time, I run a user group and a couple developer conferences, and generally take on way more work than I have time for. I can also be found speaking at many mid-west user groups, code camps and developer conferences.
