IoT Makers @ Chatswood Library - Creator Space

Chatswood Library

Greetings All.

Thanks Erik for running last event. Decembers event will be the last for this year. If anyone is free after the meetup, lets go out for Dinner/Drinks to celebrate another year.

Hope you all can make it to this next event. Looking forward to seeing you there.

Make-together at Chatswood (10:00am-4:30pm).

We now have the Maker Space from 10am to 4:30pm. Come along and enjoy. Also bring a project so we can take some photos to use on the Library Website to help promote OzBerry. :)

Please ensure to read the most up to date Covid safe conditions below:

Come along and join some like minded open source hardware and software enthusiasts. The event is back to our regular schedule, the first Saturday of every month at the Creator Space at Chatswood Library.

OzBerry events encompasses a wide range of Open Source Hardware and Software on many popular platforms, including but not limited to: Arduino, RaspberryPi, Beaglebone, Android and more… if it plugs in and is programmable then it's a good fit.

Come down and escape your home study/lab! ;) We share ideas and help each other solve bugs and design issues that might otherwise be difficult on your own. If you have an established project, please bring it with you. Both hobby and professional projects are represented each month.

Beginners are always welcome, we often have beginner events running. See the featured events below. If you are just curious or starting out, all you need is a laptop, we will get you started on one of our club Arduino or RaspberryPi kits. Or just come along and have a look, it's up to you. We can shed some light on the "Internet of Things"

Format

Over 3 hours – relaxed, unstructured collaboration and learning, come and go as you please. Help others or ask for help with your project. No pressure. But most importantly, remember to "Be excellent to each other" - https://github.com/OzBerry/code-of-conduct

Share a micro talk. Get up and speak about your project (or another topic of interest) up to 10 minutes (optional).

This workshop is open to all skill levels.

Online!

We are now online! A discussion group has been formed where members can discuss their projects or just socialise with members at https://t.me/ozberrypi

What to Bring

A laptop at a minimum. Your project if you have one, or some hardware that you'd like to tinker with.

If you are a member of the library or would like to join, there are various electronic devices you can borrow: mBots, Makey Makey, and a Droid Inventor ready to go. Raspberry Pi's coming soon.

Getting Help with your Project

If you need a hand getting started with the basics or have a tough bug in a complex system... the process is the same, just ask. :)
