So you have acquired one of the Bsides Charleston Lock SAO’s and discovered its just a kit and are wondering now what do you do? Fear not, we have your back. We will assume you have basic soldering skills.
This year, Kevin drew the short straw to give the talk about our badge for Bsides KC 2019. Aptly titled The Hardest Way to Present at a Conference he explains a lot about the development process and why making a conference badge isn’t (in itself) worth free admission! This year, to up the difficulty level and take advantage of the fact that we had more than 2 months we created TWO badges. We wanted something special for our growing number of youth attendees and it really seems to have paid off!
So you have picked up one of our 8266 Dev Boards, congrats, we have sucked you into our addiction. Now lets get you programming that bad boy
In the Spirit of Add-Ons we have used the format of the DC26 #Badge Life Shitty Add On (SAO) Connector on this years BSidesKC 2019 Badge. This is a modified SAO in that we only provided VCC and GND but we also layed out the design so that if you did not get an electronic badge you can solder on a CR2032 holder and Power the SAO port. below you will find the layout of the ports for the SAO and image of it on the BSides Badge.
