Micro-Controller Special Interest Group

Explore electronics, coding, and creative technology at our monthly Micro-controller night. We talk about Arduinos, Raspberry Pis, and the other tiny devices we love to use for embedded projects. A laptop with a usb port is recommended in case you want to get hands on with any of the devices.

7:00-7:30 Tour the MakerBar, set up workstations.
7:30-8:00 Get inspired by Lightning Talks on projects, tricks, hardware, etc.
8:00-9:30 Guided instruction on the Project of the Month or the Talk of the Month

This event is free for everyone. To participate in the Project of the Month, you must RSVP and bring a computer with a USB port. There may not be enough materials to accommodate walk-ins!

Boards are available online, or PM the organizer and they can either get one for you or tell you where they're cheapest online.

MakerBar volunteers will be present to help you with your electronics project, even if you're not taking part in the Lightning Talks or Project of the Month!

You're welcome to come hack on whatever you'd like, even if it's totally unrelated to Arduino. There will be plenty of awesome hackers from our community for you to meet.

The Microcontroller Special Interest Group runs on the second Wednesday every month.

    Is this for someone who has never used an Arduino before?

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.
