If you happen to be going to the Maker Faire in San Mateo this weekend (May 17 & 18) then make sure to search Paul out and say "Max says Hi"

Max, a little typo: the teensy 3.1 has 256k flash and 64k ram.

Arrays

Does the programming language support arrays, (repeated identical elements), of some kind? 

In any language that does, code that references separate variables like:

x1 = something;

x2 = anotherthing: ....

xn = whatever;

&c. is probably a candidate for re-writing to use elements of an array. Arrays can be treated as units, looped over, and otherwise make programming much clearer.

It certainly does -- pretty much anythibn supported by C/C++ -- my pseudo-code examples were just to illustrate my point -- you could use arrays instead of declaring/instantiating individual elements.

Max-

If you could find a convenient place to store and share your projects that would allow the rest of us to take your designs and customize them ourselves. Any ideas?

Sure -- when I've got everything up and running for a particular project, I'll post all of the hardware and software design files associated with that project so that anyone can download them and play with them.

Re : Teensy 3.1 MCU + OctoWS2811 Library Dominate Adafruit NeoPixels

I think the way she handled herself in a male dominated industry is fabulous. Not only did she look after herself but also set even standards, as well as became a role model for other women to read her up and follow her footsteps. Having said that, I think it was a right move to venture into making a new company, because right now the electronics volume is huge in the world, and new companies are sprouting up every day making promises of being better by the minute. So not only is there a healthy competition, there's also a way to market sales through the many faces of social networking and whatnot.

Give us a clue -- who are you talking about? -- Lady Adafruit? -- My Mother? :-)
