There's a lot of interest in Arduino from both members and non-members and the Arduinos classes that Steve has been running lately have been very successful.
Steve and Nick Roche are thinking that following on from this we should set up a regular Arduino SIG (Special Interest Group). This could run on the same night as Open Night (Wednesdays but running monthly not weekly) or on a different night - we are open to suggestions.
The night will NOT be a talk fest though, people that come along will need to take an active part and we would like to see everyone with their Arduinos out and either working with someone else or demoing something to the group. Steve will also run his introduction course off to the side if there is interest from newbies. There will be no charge for the course PROVIDING you buy an Arduino kit from Steve. If you already have an Arduino then there would be a cost of $20.
The Arduino SIG is free for TechSpace members or $10 for non-members. You can join the TechSpace on the night.
