It was partially based on a bonus episode of the Arcade Attack podcast called: Bonus Podcast: PlayStation Classic Wrongness.After Jay set the challenge: "Imagine that you have an unlimited budget (to deal with licensing issues), go through the games on the PlayStation Classic and replace the ones that you'll never play with ones from your dream line up," we also use podcast magic to assume that the games will just boot and run flawlessly - which is something that will only work if you use a SNES Mini. Which games did we choose? You'll have to listen in order to find out.All this and more, in episode 70 Waffling Taylors Podcast: Mini Consoles: PlayStation Classic Dream Line Up!Make sure that you check out the full show notes, links to related stuff, and music credits check out: http://wafflingtaylors.rocks/2020/02/28/mini-consoles-playstation-classic-dream-line-up/The Waffling Taylors is a proud member of Jay and Jay Media.

How to get the most out of a Conference If the conference has an app – I highly recommend downloading it – typically latest breaking changes to venue, rooms, talks, etc. will be in the appAttend talks that are outside your immediate realm of knowledge – get exposed to new things, new ideas, new ways of thinkingWalk away with fewer “unknown unknowns” and gain some more “known unknowns”Provides you with things to search when you get back from the conferencePicking the talks you want to attendSometimes you have to sacrifice bigger names just to attend talks that may pique your interestKnow that what you’re seeing on stage for an hour was probably weeks worth of effort to make it go off without a hitch – so when you try to replicate these things at home, don’t lose hope when your try isn’t as smooth as what you saw on stageThis next bit goes for Meetups, Conferences, etc – Get involved in conversations – don’t just sit on the sideline – many developers are introverts, but to truly get the most out of a conference you want to have some meaningful discussionsPacman effect – leave a gap when you’re standing in a group having a conversationTake advantage of eating times – find a table with an open spot and don’t pick up your phone!!! Say good morning or good afternoon! “What’s been your favorite talk today?”When it’s “drinking time”, talk to people. If you’re not a drinker, grab a water or a soda and join in on the conversationTry and reach out BEFORE the conference online – Twitter, Facebook, Slack, etc – try and find out who all is going to be attending and try to make a point to meet up at the event! Makes things much less awkward when you’ve planned a meeting rather than just shouldering your way in.Be a wingman/wingwoman or bring one along – help introduce people to your ring of contacts’Maybe sign up to be a speaker at one of these things!
