Next Philly Robotics Meetup - Sep 27th. Also - Arduino class offered by The Hacktory

I'm planning to post the next meetup for Thursday Sept 27 (yeah - I know its been a while since we've had a meetup. And, no, we still don't have a permanent venue, but there are a few leads still open). I'll also be posting Scott's suggestion for a trip to Maker Faire in NYC (Queens) on Sep 29-30. I'm not sure I will be able to make the trip myself, however. I do know that "Mikro", the guy behind the AeroQuad DIY quadrotor will be there, among many others.

In the meantime, The Hacktory asked me to let you know that they're offering an Arduino class, starting this week. Details below.


The Hacktory will be offering a newly revamped Intro to Arduino course this month and we would love to see you there.

In this class you can expect a fun crash course on everything you will need to get busy creating with your Arduino. We’ll cover all the key concepts, from learning the fundamental aspects of programming with the Arduino language, to the different types of materials you can use in your projects and prototypes. Our aim for this course is to send you home with a cool project to show your friends, a whole bunch of new ideas and the knowledge and resources to produce some Arduino magic!

The class will be held on Wednesday evenings — Sept 19, Sept 26, and Oct 3 — from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. The cost is $90 for all three sessions.

If you are coming to the class with some knowledge of microprocessors, basic circuitry and/or programming, you may attend just one or two sessions for $30 each. Email [address removed] for details.

The cost of the class does not include materials. We will have an assortment of sensors, buzzers, motors and more for you to experiment with in class. Stay tuned for more information on kits that will be available for purchase.
