We value interactions between people. It's the essential way to learn and grow.
At the moment there are many communities in Latvia with united enthusiasts interested in IT, but there is no common information space to share ideas and knowledge, irregardless of your specialty and professional alignment.
In order to provide a solution for the problem we intend to:
create a space for sharing information with IT professionals make it open for all, so anyone can participate and create an event organize IT-related events share our experience of organizing events spread the passion for gaining knowledge and never stop learning evolve the network by gathering feedback
AVR, PIC, ARM - those words might be unfamiliar to you, or quite the contrary - your night lamp is controlled by Arduino based DIY - you're equally welcome to join our microcontroller's inspired event.
We'll start by looking into basics of easy-to-start kits like Arduino, following with low-level C programming similar to what real Pro-s do. Sorry, but no ASM this time :P
(Yet I have an embedded Python [GPS+GSM] module for your amusement)
We'll be using chip datasheets (http://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/en/DeviceDoc/40044G.pdf) to make sense out of pins, registers, and voltages. Some intro about what fuses, timers, interrupts, USART, SPI, I²C, DAC and ADC, oscillator, watchdog, BOR, EEPROM, CCP and PWM, hardware stack, GPIO, ICSP, etc. are - is also planned.
Bring a laptop and/or your favorite board with you, together with the tools.
Inviting an unsuspicious friend will result in +1 to you karma.
