Please join us at Atmel Corporation for our next meetup! To many of us, Atmel is "the mothership" of one of the greatest workhorse microcontrollers in the world, the AVR. The AVR has gotten incredibly popular in recent years thanks to the Arduino Platform, and if you're interested in an inexpensive rapid prototyping platform with great IO capability and reasonable horsepower, this is your ticket!
Atmel has been gracious enough to not only host the meeting but also to provide free RZ600 and Temperature Sensor Kits that will allow attendees to communicate wirelessly between the temperature sensor and the Arduino!
And, SparkFun's shipment arrived as well, so we will be giving out three brand new Arduino Uno kits at the event, along with an introductory book written by the Co-Father of the Arduino himself! You won't want to miss our next get together.
As the time gets closer, we'll publish a list of requirements for attending the meeting, as this is meant to be a hands-on, working lab session with Arduino. To prepare, you may want to get your own Arduino board from SparkFun, get it powered up, and get it talking with the free, cross-platform Arduino IDE.
I'd also like to thank Rocendo for volunteering to lead the session and for all of the effort Randy has done in securing the space. See you guys in just a few weeks time! Keep watching for more logistical details as the time gets closer.
