Craftstructionism (Making Stuff)

So Coded in Hamburg, Germany. 19th & 20th Sept. 2013

http://socoded.com/

Making stuff in the real world nicely compliments making things for computer. In this talk I give examples of three projects that I made and go over the planning and implementation for each.

The first is something fun and recreational using needle and thread - my Sailor Neptune Halloween costume. http://sewsailorneptune.tumblr.com/

The second is something practical and large scale, involving trips to the hardware store - a standing desk for my office. http://spacekat.me/blog/2012/07/31/steel-pipe-standing-desk/

The third involves using web development tools to make something fun - a lorem ipsum generator called Riker Ipsum. http://rikeripsum.com/

Some of the URLs I reference in this talk are:
