Hello,Couple of Notes!
Feel free to drop by the space and say "hi", we're always open to visitors, even if you're not a member
. We also have a surprising lack of software developers stopping in; we have warm chairs, extra LCD monitors (and a giant TV), music, and cookies! Alright, I'm lying about the cookies, but seriously it wouldn't hurt to see more software people (and artists!) swing on in.(another) Arduino 101 Class - 11/30 7pm- $30All Ages - (parental involvement required)When:

. Class is limited to 6 people (1 taken), you need to bring a laptop (or check that a computer is available for your use). We'll loan you an Arduino and all of the hardware for you to learn with. If you're interested in learning more about using an Arduino to control things I'm working on preparing an Arduino 102 class
*Don't know what an Arduino is or what you can do with it? Read here.Arduino Worknight - 12/1-12/2 6pm-] - FREE

for more information and to register, should be a great day with food included in the registration!Monthly Meeting - 12/7 - 7pm
Yes, it's been another month and it's certainly gotten colder out! This month we'll have presentations from Larry on what LiveCode is and how to interface it with an Arduino. We can probably convince Scott to give us a gear making injection molder demo and perhaps Branden will now be pressured into having the RepStrap printing by next Tuesday o:-) . Aric will also be stopping by with his MakerBot that's in need of a calibration which is a great excuse to print off some test parts. I'll try to get the soda machine running as well, so all in all it should be an action packed evening! Hope to see you there.
Questions/comments/complaints always welcome.
