Microcontroller Meetup

Do you love Arduino? How about Raspberry Pi? Do you want know about these things but don't know where to begin? Come to our monthly Microcontroller Meet-Up! Bring your laptop, your projects, and your questions to TechShop and then chat with people about microcontrollers and their applications. We will meet in the event room at TechShop Pittsburgh.

First-time visitors to TechShop, please be sure to check in at the front desk and receive a free tour of the TechShop facility.

This event is FREE and open to both members and non-members of TechShop Pittsburgh. RSVP here!

We also offer classes in building and programming the Arduino. Check out our electronics class listings at

    A Quick Update: Host Andy has acquired some fun new stuff from Adafruit and will have it there tonight. The focus of tonight's meeting will be PLAY! We've done a lot of talking and demos, lets now get down and start programming these little guys!

    Hi All,

    I'll be hosting this meetup and unlike last months meetup we'll have 2 entire rooms dedicated to this meetup! The main topic of this week's meetup will be wireless connections to the Arduino. We've talked about this before in previous months, but I hope to have one of Adafruit's CC3000 shields in and also some of Adafruit's neo pixels to play with. We will try also to focus on more doing a project rather than, what is Arduino this meetup!

    We will also be raffling off an ARdweeny which is a super slimed down bread boardable version of the Arduino!

    Hope to see you there!

    "All" you can do? Get serious. This is an open-ended architecture that, while it has some physical limitations about total memory available, exactly /what/ you can do with it is primarily limited by your imagination. That's the best part of computing, and why I spent (so far) 50 years doing software. Look at the total memory size. Take 2 to that power. Realize that not every possible bit pattern has meaning, you still have a HUGE set of programs. If you wanted to try this experiment, of downloading every possible program and seeing what it did, the limiting factor in this experiment will be the heat death of the Sun (the real Sun, not the computer company), which will happen in about ten billion years. Of course, you have to run each program with every possible shield. The fastest way to do that is to have a few million Arduinos, each with a different shield configuration, and download them all simultaneously.

    I want to find all that you can do with Arduinos.
