Interested in developing something around a small microcomputer - like the Arduino or MSP430 line of processors?
I have a number of Freetronics Eleven's (Arduino Uno compatible - 8 available), Freetronics Leosticks (8 or 10) and Texas Instruments MSP430 starter kits (6) available to dabble with. The Arduino comes with its own IDE (the Arduino IDE) which is C based, and the MSP430 has the equivalent in Energia.
We will be experimenting with various stuff you can put on the devices, have breadboards and talk and show extra devices you can put onto the boards.
All you need is a laptop or a friend with a laptop.
If I can get my MezzoMill PCB milling tool working in a future session we can make our own PCB's.
