LA Arduino Monthly Meetup

Let's get together to have talks, discussions and share our experiences with Arduino.

 

For this time we are going to have:

Leslie Brothers: presenting "The ABCs of Setting Up an XBee".

"A beginner's level demonstration of how to implement point-to-point communication using the XBee device"

 

+ Brian Matthews: presenting "Servo and Mechanism Design Tutorial"

 

We are still having room for more talks.


Formal Talks

30 minutes to 1 hour+ presentations and/or demos about topics, ideas or projects, Arduino related.


Lightning Talks

5 to 15 minutes of Arduino related topics. Screens or demos are not required, just come up to the front and share your project, ideas, experience, thoughts, etc.


If you would like to present, please send me a message with your topic.

There is underground parking below the facility. It's $6 to park there. You can also park around Main st.

    Looking forward to seeing what your are all doing. I just took my first class, hoping to translate into an art project.
