Micro-Controller Special Interest Group

November Topic: TIs MSP430 chips, although you are, as always welcome to play with anything, at least a few of us will be grappling with the launchpad and other TI chips.

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.

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.

    I'll be there. I have a couple soldering projects I need to do, but I'll bring my TI launchpad (would the space like it as a donation?)

      We can probably put it out for usage if you're done with it.

    If you can try installing Energia and/or Code Composer Studio before arriving it will make things smoother--they are huge downloads if we all try to get them at once. Get it here:

    I've got a bunch of the TI Launchpad Kits and a few capacitive shields. Anyone need any?

      To be honest, I was on the fence, but I guess the decision has been made for me now :)

      Have never worked on TI. But would be willing to try.

    I don't have a project of my own, but would be glad to look over somebody's shoulder while they hack on something if there might be a good learning opportunity.

    I've been meaning to play with microcontrollers for years and have just never gotten around to it.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
