This is a learning / doing discussion group focused on developing electronic hardware / software / electronic products. Discussions are themed around a topic (could be RF, could be using FPGA tools or a favorite compiler, could be PCB layout, could be supply-chain-fu, and others) and may include educators, professionals, hackers, makers, entrepreneurs, and anyone else with the intended goal of teaching people about electronics design. We share ideas, problems, challenges and learn both thru lecture / discussion, but also hands-on. We have resources for soldering, testing, programming, etc available as needed, extra computers for hands-on activities, and will extend them to attendees / speakers wherever possible. There is also time allocated for demonstrations, requests for help, what-not. Likewise, time will be allocated for "office-hours" where you can meet speakers / presenters and even ask questions. If you feel you have something to teach or something you aim to learn, if you want to know more about building electronic products, about gaming the supplychain or manufacturing process, etc. we encourage you to attend, even suggest a topic and if you're the expert, let us know...if it's awesome, we'll run with it.
