Shortly, we will be joined by not only the D3 Engineering team, but also representatives from Qualcomm, Arrow, and the 96Boards team. As usual, community members from around the world are welcome to join and discuss this latest announcement.

What announcement you ask?
96Boards will be welcoming a new mezzanine board to the family, the DesignCore Camera Mezzanine from D3 Engineering. Join us while we announce this amazing new board, live on 96Boards OpenHours! You can expect several cool demos and a giveaway / raffle of several DragonBoard 410c / D3 Camera Mezzanine kits, gifted from Qualcomm and Arrow.

Recent Blogs
A couple of new blogs have surfaced in the wake of this announcement! Be sure to catch up on this bit of reading before and after the broadcast:

In these blogs you will find a variety of resources including links to wikis, documentation and videos.

Another interesting blog went out talking about 96Boards efforts in different regions around the world. If are at all interested in seeing what has happened (possibly in areas near you) be sure to give this one a read:

As mentioned in the blog, we would of course like input and suggestions for future events around the world. 96Boards is always looking for new opportunities. Be sure to comment on the blog, or reach out to us through our many social media channels.

Brazilian Partnership Program
Before our next weekly digest email, the Brazilian partnership program will have come to and end. Show your support in these final days to all of the amazing projects which are being showcased on the Embarcados website. You can always join us at the end of our special countdown to either get your program questions answered, or ask the participating teams questions of your own! Last week many showed up to share their 96Boards experiences and we all had a lot of fun hanging out in BlueJeans.

Last week (June 15, 2017)

OpenHours Episode #58 - So we have finally pushed out a completed project around 96Boards focusing on home surveillance. Mani, from the 96Boards team has spent the last 3 weeks putting everything together. Populating a repo full of code and instructions and pushing out five blogs so anyone can follow along to recreate the system. We included an appendix for items we hope to add to this project, and of course encourage anyone to contribute! Today, we will be walking through the process and breaking it down on video. Hopefully, by the end of the video, we will show a nice little demo and announce the next big idea! I am told the next 96Boards giveaway will be announced during this video as well :-)
