Make:SF @ Tech Liminal March 19th

Hello Makers

This meeting is happening at Tech Liminal new location

555 12th St. #110
OaklandCA 94607

Come for the meeting and see the new space as well!

We want to see the cool stuff you all are doing! So email us if you have something you want to show off and we will arrange a demo.

In celebration of the lighting of the Baylights the workshop this month is making and programming full color animated RGB LEDs strips! In the workshop we solder together a strip of full color animated RGB LEDs. Andrew and Malcolm will go over how the LED strips work, and how to connect them to a power supply and logic board (a tiny microcontroller computer running a test pattern.) By the end of this workshop, you'll have a working LED strip and a harness to connect it to the included power supply and an Arduino microcontroller.

The materials fee for the workshop is $35 but if you already have one of these LED strips then bring it and it is free. Anca and Michael will be a leading a group to program your strip with some new code.  We've been compiling some different patterns to share with you - or bring your own explorations.


A fun-for-all-ages event. Children under 14 need to be accompanied by an adult.

See you soon!
