Computers & Programming

Needs a location

Let's get together and talk about everything computer hardware, programming languages, and operating systems!

There is so much technology around us. It's awesome but often overwhelming.

There is no particular topic - It's anything the group wants to discuss.

Want to try installing Mint Linux?
Build a web app using Vue?
Install a new hard drive to make your pc faster?
Need to learn how databases work?
etc. etc. etc.

Hosted by Tony Bellomo who serves as the Technical Director of Innovation at a global consulting company.

No computer topic too small or too big - Let's share our knowledge and learn from each other.

Any age, any knowledge level

Public Access 3D Printing and Laser Cutting

Needs a location

FREE and open to the public of all ages! This is the time to come and learn how to use the 3D printer and the laser cutter; as well as how to obtain or create files to run on them. The 3D printer has a nominal charge of 10 cents per gram for the filament it consumes; and for the laser some scrap material is available; but for a big project you will need to obtain some hobby plywood (1/8 inch or 3mm birch laminate preferred or acrylic).
