The second meetup, at 7:00, is our gadget workshop. Last week we built our first simple arduino device that had a trigger (button) and a response (buzzer). That may sound trivial, but it was sufficient to demonstrate a very common template for a typical gadget and it got everyone exposed to the development process, both hardware and software. This week we will explore how to trigger a response to an Internet connected device, to share information with a larger or more distant audience.
Our third meetup, at 8:30, is for experienced programmers to learn new skills and to develop new applications. Last week I had no takers but I stayed late working on an issue with my arduino WiFi connection.
Hope to see all my new techie friends tonight!
