"Come and hack our dinosaurs" – how could I resist a request like this? How I tamed dinosaurs and can train anyone to keep them under control. This 30 minute talk takes you from the time of the dinosaurs to the oldest Theme Park in the world. It explains how I used a Raspberry Pi computer and an open source visual flow programming language called Node-RED to hack some animatronic dinosaurs at the Theme Park and breathed new life into them.
