Arduinos, Propellers, Bus Pirates and more - It's Monday night microcontroller madness!
This is a study group where we get together, share, experiment, and work on projects while helping each other learn about various microcontrollers, like the Arduino.
Format of this group will be:
Introductions and networking (~15 min): Get to know each other, IXR, and our lab
Show & Tell (15-30 min): Show us a project you're working on or talk about a topic you're learning
Project/work time (until close): Brainstorm, collaborate, experiment, and hack away!
IXR Lab Resources: Available for lab use- We have numerous Arduino shields and various displays to experiment with, Arduinos, a Propellers, an FPGA system, AVR Dragon and AVR Programmers, and a library of microcontroller books. Or, design your own robot using the EDDIE robot development platform with Microsoft Kinect. Plus, a well-equipped electronics lab.
Beginners welcome: Even if you've never used a microcontroller before, come on in! You can use one from the lab and we'll help set you up with some starter projects.
BRING: If you have your own laptop, bring it. If you have your own Arduino or other microcontroller to work on, bring it too.
If you do not have a laptop or a microcontroller, thats OK! Just please state so in your RSVP so I can be sure to have one available for you from our lab.
COST: Microcontroller Mondays are Free to IXR members; for non-members there is a $5 recommended donation.
