Ok first I apologize because honestly, there haven’t been any updates for awhile. I recently took on some new duties for Westwood One and getting into the swing of things and learning has been all consuming but fun. So with that said, I have started to post the Audio from Shows, 9/16 and 9/02 are posted so please give a listen and check them out.
We had a great show this weekend although without Justin, Talked with Brittney from Accessory Power about the GoGroove DSLR Camera Bags, Wirecast 8 is here – talked with Telestream about that and our buddy Scott from AT&T visited to talk about the new devices and plans from AT&T.
We will have the Audio up later today! Also coming are the Interview Sections AND the Segments from KMSB Fox 11 on our YouTube Page! Phew – Thanks for hanging with us and some great new content coming soon!
For some of us lucky to have experienced DOS, we can appreciate the process of typing in a few lines of “Basic” coding and accomplishing a task. While the coding has become more complex, the ability to handle task can be created easily with the help from Tynker.
The Coding education can take place in a classroom as well as self paced courses with those learning Coding while designing elements of minecraft or other games.
An announced collaboration today between Tynker and Parrot can now expand the learning to code feature to Drones manufactured by Parrot. According to the company those wanted to learn to code through Tynker and Parrot will learn;
Programming a drone’s flight path from takeoff to landing
Building a drone controller to pilot a drone in real time
Programming flips, turns, and other aerial stunts
Integrating loops and variables to make geometric patterns
Coding games such as Flappy Drone and drone racing
Taking an aerial photo and sharing it with friends or classmates
According to the Tynker website, 50 Million children in over 200 countries are experiencing coding through Tynker in educational system . With Parrot Mambo Code, users will be able to create and easily understand the outcome of codes as they apply to a drone.
A Bundle has been put together by Tynker and Parrot which includes a Parrot Mambo minidrone and a six-month premium subscription to Tynker. The minidrone comes complete with a mini-ball launcher, grabber, 50 plastic balls, USB cable, and battery; the Tynker subscription includes eight mobile (iPad) coding courses, 18 online coding courses, over 350 puzzle levels, more than 100 tutorials, and a virtual drone flight simulation course.

In this Weeks Show, Justin gives us a quick thought on the Cobra CDR 895D Dual camera system supplied by Cobra Electronics for the car, Perfect for capturing the horrified face of a driver before they run into you. Justin will be doing a review of the camera and Andy recommends Justin drive his new Ford into a wall to test out the crash detection. For some reason, Justin doesn’t like the idea.
The TechtalkRadio blog is back for now with data recovered.While investigation options for Sites, Andy stumbles upon SiteLock. An Info graph was available on the data on Sites compromised and why. Logan Kipp from Sitelock shares some of the finer points of working to a strong safe and secure site for any type of site. Andy gets a Instagram like from a Celebrity and gets all giddy.
We recently had some downtime with the TechtalkRadio Blog and are happy to bring it back and focus on some content to deliver here as well as the Radio Show and Website. We will be making some slight changes to the website soon to allow for more content from Slick and Justin and hope you will visit again. Also, please be sure to subscribe to the Radio Show Via Spreaker or Google Play!
