It was very nice meeting you guys indeed, and I'm already looking forward to the next session !
Now that we know each other, maybe next time we could consider doing a few talks on specific subjects and/or demos, what do you think ?
For those of you who are in Paris, there's also another meetup happening in december, Paris Audio (http://www.meetup.com/Paris-Audio/events/214035842/), which might be of interest to you, even if it is less c++ inclined - the next session topic is focussed on web audio and spatialization

Btw Jules, the percussion thing I was telling you about: http://www.korg.com/us/products/drums/wavedrum_global_edition. I guess it uses piezo sensors for velocity/position detection, and quite probably an FSR element to gather pressure data.
The sensor tech is not really rocket science, and sensor feels a bit coarse, but the deep control/synthesis integration is really nice and makes it one of the most playable and expressive electronic instruments I've had a chance to try out.
I can't help thinking e-drums combined with the extended expression possibilities of the seaboard pressure sensors would make an amazing instrument ..
