Its been a busy couple of weeks, last week, most excellently I got the opportunity to go out to the ESA (european space agency) centre of operations in Darmstadt, Germany to be at and speak at the inaugral Open Cubesat Workshop. My talk starts around 24 minutes in to this video below..
Put together by the Libre Space Foundation, the Librecube initiative and ESA/ESOC Cybernetics Team this was a fabulous 2 day event featuring a mass of speakers and delegates from all around the globe coming together to share their work around opensource space and Cubesat themes.
Featuring speakers, demo areas, an ESOC facility tour, breakout workshops, and much much more I think this conference was a triumph. It was so impressive to meet people who had traveled from places such as a team from Japan, a crew from an Argentinian robotics/maker club, the brilliant Greek Librespace lot, Poland, France, Russia and even Wales.. :) I made plenty of new friends and really look forward to supporting and helping the team for OSCW18.
If you are interested the whole of the conference talks were captured and are on this youtube playlist
I chucked together a storify of all the tweets that went out on the conference hashtag #oscw17 which is here...
