Microcontroller Mondays

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 chit chat (~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.

    I'm very happy to see the growth of this weekly meetup and the crowd of people we are drawing in. We are seeing a mix of all skill levels, from beginner to quite advanced, and it's great to see everyone learning from each other and sharing skills and ideas. A great community is forming, right here!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
