Project Gado is an initiative which aims to create an open-source archival scanning robot which small archives can purchase for $500 and use to autonomously scan their photographic collections. This talk presents the Gado 2, a prototype scanning robot built around Python and Arduino, and shares lessons learned from using Python as the primary language in a large-scale archival scanning project.
