Let’s meet up, network and hear about LEDgoes and its successful Kickstarter campaign. This will be a great opportunity for anyone in the funding stage of a project to learn about crowd funding or for anyone just curious to get an inside look at the crowd funding process from a successful project RIGHT HERE IN DALLAS!
LEDgoes is a modular LED sign marquee that is controlled by software to display text or animations to display a message up to 12 feet long simply by snapping together each LED panel. You can stack rows to show taller letters or larger animations. Its simple yet powerful open-source hardware design controllable over USB or Bluetooth (and WiFi in the future) allows users to program the matrix using open-source software without the need to write a single line of code or spend hours writing messages. LEDgoes is designed & manufactured in Dallas and is led by Stephan and Stacy Wylie.
Stephen Wylie is a computer engineer. He has released several apps for Android, Windows Phone, and Blackberry, and enjoys developing concepts that leverage real hardware, algorithms, and/or government open data to make apps & mashups that truly solve problems.
Stacy Wylie is also a computer engineer experienced in complete end-to-end Android development from kernel up to the application space. She is opinionated on all aspects of design, from implementation to manufacturing & even marketing. Her desire to have nice audio equipment on a shoestring budget ushered her into hardware design at an early age, and she made a business out of it to pay bills in college. To complement her real-world experience, she obtained a Six Sigma green belt.
Networking starts at 5:30pm and the main presentation will be at 7pm followed by Q&A with your guest. Pizza and drinks are provided by Improving Enterprises, our host.
