My coworkers are terrified that I’m going to quit my current job and go work with :spark:.


Do it! The Embedded Systems Engineer position is a dream job for me, though I’d work as a janitor if I had to. XD

I’m more of a full-stack / front-end / mobile developer myself. I will be performing job duties in all 3 of those areas TODAY for my current job. Actually, I’ve only done front-end and mobile development today. I’m waiting for network ops to fix something for me to do the full-stack part.

Why very expensive to live - California ? I live in So. California and SF Bay area is even more expensive than the Happiest Place on Earth area (Disneyland - for those out of state).

I know you guys can run a company from anywhere but, California ? Did you know the state of California owes its State Pension fund over $400 Billion ? That’s $136,000 for each taxpayer ! And that does not include the coming $185 Million the state owes to cover bonds.

I’m moving away from So. Cal in the near future - If you move to Texas or Idaho I will come take out the trash and turn out the lights at night :slight_smile:


@zach When I move back to the Bay Area I’ll swing buy and meet the team. California is super expensive, super beautiful, and its the perfect place for a company like Spark to be. A whole lot of the same energy there that they will vibe and grow with I’m sure.

Congrats on the success team!


Getting excited with IoT :). I have been an embedded engineer for more than 10 years. Will you all take in non American that need work permit? Else quite happy to work from where I am if you don’t mind remote staff :).

@BDub reminds me of when you were our first active community member, and we stalked you:


Okay - I’m no match for that cute face, but I am excited for my Spark Core to arrive. :stuck_out_tongue:

Trying to decide… building a skirt with neopixels & an accelerometer to make them sparkle when you move - if I use the core to change the colour on the fly is this more lame than cool, or cool than lame? :stuck_out_tongue: Maybe it depends on whose party I’m going to. haha


You should talk to @gelicia … she builds sparkly skirts and wears them out in public…


My experience with light up clothing at parties is the more the better :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

Obviously you have rad friends that would love to change the color of your skirt from your website www.rachaeliscool.com/skirt No? Build it anyway, then acquire such friends :wink:

Make sure you post a video when you finish! If you need help just shout. Good luck!

@gelica - Awesome. Going to get started tomorrow. :slight_smile: Maybe I can pick your brain if I run into trouble. I do have some rad friends here in Halifax - we think light-up clothing will make people smile, and maybe make hardware projects seem a little less intimidating too.


Sure thing, I’m not really on here that much, hit me up on twitter, I’ll be quicker to respond on there :slight_smile:

@Spark … are you going to San Francisco? Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair! :stuck_out_tongue:
