Got some Arduino questions? Need help on an Arduino project? Want to work on an Arduino project with other Arduino enthusiasts?
Come to our Arduino for Beginners/Group Project Meet-Up!

I thought there would be experienced people presenting their projects and sharing their knowledge. But everyone got a little disappointed, because there wasn´t anyone coordinating the event... Our luck was this guy, Daniel, that had a few simple experiments with Arduino to share.

Usually Elise or myself are running these meetups. Elise runs the beginner meetup that covers an intro to electronics, programming and help with starting an Arduino project. This meetup is on the first weekend of the month. I host the show-n-tell on the third Sunday. At this meetup, we cover finished projects and help with on going projects. Seeing a finish project is fun, but helping people who are stuck or moving on a project is a lot of fun and educational. You will find that the people who attend these meetups come from varied backgrounds are love helping out. I apologize for the last meetup did not cover what we usually do and I hope that you attend the next show-n-tell.

I guess the point is if everybody at the beginner meeting is an absolute beginner, then that is a non starter. So we were all hoping that since a beginner meeting was set up, one of you guys would show up or give a heads up that none of you can make it.
I was going to post essentially the same message Renato posted, but figured there wasn't much point. Now that I see it, and I see Shane's reply, I figure it's worth adding my two cents. I would suggest that if an experienced person can't make it to the beginner meetup, a note be posted on the meetup wall. I know this is a fully volunteer thing, but more information is better for all involved. =)Thanks to Daniel, the (only?) person with some experience, some people who had probably done no research at all on the Arduino were able to learn some basics and have some useful questions answered. I had already googled quite a bit, and I was hoping for some guidance on choosing the right board for my application. I eventually left the meeting, went home, and continued googling. I'll be turning to the forums for help and perhaps, if I am successful with my project, I'll come to a show-and-tell in several months. =)
all i'm hearing is that i should've been there, f*ck!
I normally goto these. And I showed up on Sunday, though I didn;t show up until right before 8 pm. Everybody had left by then.

For the next meet up, please let us know if someone with experience will be there. I have two Electrical Engineer friends with experience working with the Arduino modules ask to join our next meeting if people are interested. Please let me know so I can make arrangements.
Hi. Is entry free? May I come even I don't have any project to work on just to see what projects and San Jose community looks like? Maybe I could help somehow. Regards, Jakub V.
