It's an organized pile. Really.
I'm slowly recovering from JavaOne, and the Hands on Lab, and Maker Faire the weekend before, and traveling, and working 18-hours a day for 10 straight days, etc. It may take some time.
But I took some photos during the preparation for the Sun SPOTs Hands on Lab at JavaOne. We had 75 Sun SPOT kits to open, take apart, and solder headers (sockets) on. Fun.
We had a System. It's all about the system.
We had to take every Sun SPOT out of the box, take each one apart, and pull the sensor board (eDemoBoard) off.
Once we had all the sensor boards off, we had the thoroughly enjoyable task of soldering the socket on to each one. That's 75 kits, 2 eDemoBoards each, and 20 solder-points per board, or 3,000 solder points. It only Took Pete a day.
Pete's Soldering skills have improved with all this practice
I'll post more later about other matters, but I wanted to get this up as a shout-out to Pete in thanks for his hours of inhaling solder-fumes on behalf of the Hands On Lab. Thanks Pete!
