Regarding goofing up TX/RX: On the STM32 MCUs (at least the newer ones) you can swap TX/RX in software (there’s a SWAP bit in the USART control register).
Is that Chris in the grey shirt (hunched over) at the 2019-hackaday-superconference-badge?
BTW, is the event always in Pasadena, and are there videos of the presentations?
Also , there was a great Planet Money podcast (#943: Unicorn Cowboy) on the whole WeWork story!
Chris Gammell says
That’s actually not me in the gray shirt, I’m in the black jacket two seats to the left of that person though!
The event has been in Pasadena the past 4 years, it was in SF the first year. Videos are found on the Hackaday youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/hackaday
