We have a new date for our rescheduled meeting. Once again, our apologies regarding the cancellation. We were left with few options when we discovered our space was no longer available due to admin error -- 4 hours before our meeting was to start!!
Here's hoping TUESDAY, AUGUST 13 is better for those who couldn't make it and will still work for those of you who wanted to come. Please edit your RSVP as necessary.
This is another one for the makers. We'll be hearing about microcontrollers. If you have created any kind of Arduino-type project and you'd like to share it, please let us know when you RSVP. We'd like to have a community show & tell at the end of the evening. Or, if you are an expert in this field and would like to speak, we'd like to hear from you.

Tom will give a primer on Arduino for the uninitiated and discuss big picture context and significance. Then he'll take us through a few of his projects and how they contributed to successful digital installations.

"Building your own cellphone with an Arduino"
Ever wanted a phone that doesn't just look like a small black box straight out of a Foxconn factory? All you'll need is a SIM card, an Arduino, a few cheap hardware components and a soldering iron.
