IITM Shaastra HackFest 2011

I attended the Arduino workshop Shaastra HackFest with my friends. “Attended” because I didn’t really work on anything. (Poda ! No working when out with friends and all)

What I did there was basically hang out with IRC nicks, meet new people and BS around. however, it appears that my classmates got started with the arduino.

The only agenda was #c-h website which has since been resolved.

This post will serve as a reminder when those “CHA. I HAVE NO LIFE DA” moments turn up.

On Thurs, dinner at Ascendas with gsathya, beachbrake, handa, pratul and kau. good food, jokes, laughter. We turned up late for the event. So we have have 3 out of 4 mentors turning up late. Wonder what kind of impression that must have given :P

I got too many calls and SMS and finally switched my phone to silent mode.

First day was pretty basic arduino stuff and i just hung with pranavrc and gsathya and got trolled :| And yuvipanda walked around mumbling something along “what a bunch. I’m going to have to teach them PHP”. This is a particularly peculiar case as panda pretty much hates PHP “with a burning white-hot passion of a thousand suns”.

I don’t really remember what happened on the second day. The third day we nobody did anything. just a series of lectures given by the mentors. We missed pratul’s “Taking over the Earth and taking over Mars” talk on git. I learnt to use vim to its 10% potential.

Now it appears as if nothing extraordinarily fun happened. it was VERY MUCH fun but I just don’t recall it now :|. This can probably be compared to “The Hangover” except we had sleep-deprivation instead of roofies and computers instead of …err never mind. I’ll just let the pictures do the talking.
