OSDC 2011: Wii Homebrew: Running and writing software for the Wii

I spoke at the OSDC 2011 in Canberra, Australia. The talk was about writing and using homebrew software on the Wii. I got some great feedback after the talk, and was happy to see so many people interested in the idea. I was also pleased to see how many people already have a modded Wii. Hopefully I was able to give a few people some tips.

Presentation Software

Part of my¬†preparation¬†for the talk was to hack together some presentation software to run on the Wii. This allowed me to give the actual presentation on the Wii. I called it Priijector (because every piece of software for the Wii has to have a double ii somewhere). For the fun of it, I’ve put it up on github under a BSD licence. It will read a pres.txt file in a custom (and hacky) markup to define slides and transitions.

You can get the code from github under the Apache 2.0 license.

Slides used in Presentation
