Laser training. It's training on the laser. Save yourself from disappointment and social embarrassment by being a fully inducted member with fully working activated tested functional keyfob BEFORE you sign up. (This means if you're being inducted on this day you can't join this training session, sorry). And please only sign up if you can make it. Signing up and then showing up late bumps someone else off a slot - and they're going to be annoyed with you when I tell them (and I will). Don't be late, it wastes everyone's time and counts as a no-show and will also impact on VOLUNTEER willingness to train you in future. Ok, enough warnings .... this stuff is awesome... turn up and be trained on one of our most popular pieces of equipment, learn to build your dreams out of anything on earth (so long as it's wood or acrylic). And I'll make some suggestions on how to run the software you need to get the most out of it. Turn up, pay attention, be laser trained! Awesome! FAQ Q: Can I sign up for this before my keyfob has been activated, working and tested by me? A: No. Q. Can I be late? A: No. Q. I can't make it and I fear your wrath, what can I do? A: Cancel here on meetup so that someone else can have your slot.
Just the basics of sewing: how to use a sewing machine, and some tips on fabrics and stiches.
Not just for Raspberry Pi-ers; Arduino and other embedded-type projects also welcome. Whether you're a guru or an interested beginner, you'll be welcome. Bring along a project you're working on, or join in with whatever else is going on. It's a good plan to bring your laptop, if you have one.
