    Interesting and inspiring meeting.

    Thanks again Michael .. always a pleasure.

    QUESTION:

    Can anyone recommend a good source to buy the new Arduino Yun from?

    I have found YUNs between £55-£65 each. Just wondering if anyone knows where I can get them cheaper.

      Just trying to find an affordable option to buy multiple YUNs

      What about RS and Farnell? They normally have some volume discounts. If you want cheaper than that, you may need to wait for clone boards...

    In my bio - I mean more basic training and assistance in a jam/group. I've not yet considered giving individual robot/arduino/micro/electronics training.

  • Ade

    On the OrionRobots presentation, nice guy, very affordable robot parts.

    Thanks Danny.

    PS:
    Your bio mentions you offer training. What would that cost an interested individual?

    Can I bring a raspberry pi along?

    September 24, 2013

    • Marc B.

      Off course Peter, this group is open to all micro-controllers and many of our projects involve the Rpi! See you at the event. M

    Errrm, the link to the Google appears to be broken, it claims there is no group called "london-arduino", should that be "londuino", which IS a group, if this is the wrong group I apologise, but I'm new here and I don't know what group is what :-)

    September 12, 2013

    • Marc B.

      Thanks Peter for pointing out the broken link, now corrected (It is the same group), cheers

      September 12, 2013

    • Peter W.

      Glad I could help.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
