A casual evening to show & tell, work on your electronics projects, meet other makers, and help each other learn. After an organized talk and show & tell we’ll spend time working on our projects in the space.
For this first meetup we’re going to look at some of the contests and challenges currently running and brainstorm, discuss ideas:
– Are You An IoT Jedi? Join the Particle Alliance!
– The SeeedStudio BeagleBone Green IoT Contest
– World’s Largest Arduino Maker Challenge
– Power Without Boundaries
Conversations on the #hackster slack channel: https://robotgarden.slack.com/archives/hackster
With some sponsorship from Hackster.IO we’ll have opportunities to compete in contests like these and get access to hardware and new gear to try out. I’ll be bringing some of my boards (Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Beaglebone Black) and other electronics to experiment with.
Over the course of the series we will also try to replicate and improve other projects that sound interesting to show how they work. Bring a problem and maybe somebody else has already solved it.
Time is tentative, will post updates if anything changes.
