    I won't be able to make it tomorrow due to a project deadline. But I would really like to attend future events.

      Thank your for encouraging me. I'm ashamed to tell you how long that box of parts has been under my bed. You made a difference in somebody's life.

    Great meetup! Can't wait to get a Spark Core! Thank you to everyone for the encouragement. My motivation went up to 11! I hope everyone finds the same enthusiasm for their dreams that you have given to me. Just because something is improbable does not make it impossible!

    Good meeting! Great to have the Spark Board guest via video!
    Here's the modular MIDI controller that our company makes: http://www.lividinstruments.com/hardware_elements.php
    The modularity is mostly in form. We do use a multipurpose PCB we call the omni board that is good for this low-volume production, as well as DIY:

    We also design our products around this, more or less:

    Though each product has it's own firmware, a lot of the parts and code is shared.
