So this year LCA 2012 was in Ballarat. As per my Ballarat post. While it wasn't the most exciting city in Australia, I just spent more time at the conference itself and with my confernece buddies.

The first day, we had the Arduino 2012 miniconf where we built the new Pebble v2:

This gave me something to play with during the conference. I spent most of my free time hacking on my new Pebblev2 board after the fact and ended up writing a new lcd3wire library and a much improved Pebble v2 Aiko Demo Code.

At the end of the conf, I went to the Hackerfest, where I got to write the rest of my code for my Pebble v2 :)

John brought some samples from freetronix for us to play with, drool over, or buy and bring home :)

But back to LCA 2012. They had some great keynotes (they were covered on The keynotes are on youtube.

The talks themselves, there were very some good ones. You cand find all the videos on the LCA 2012 youtube channel:

Two of the speakers sent one of their probes to near-space with a helium baloon after their talk:

And to finish a few random pictures of dinners and evenings:

Mikal came at the end of the conference to tell us about next year, and he's going to be the poor sob who's going to run it next year. Beat of luck Mikal :)

And just like that, the conf was over:

As always, LCA was a very well run conference, and despite the choice of a location that was very inconvenient (the uni itself being too far from whatever already limited city center was available in Ballarat), I had a great time again. In the end, it's still about the people, the conference, and the speakers.
