Pi Masters is holding its delayed March meetup event on Thursday, April 10, 2014 at 6:00 pm (with doors opening at 5:30 pm) at Rockville Economic Development (REDI) at 95 Monroe Street Rockville, MD 20850. PLEASE NOTE: This is a new location since we are currently unable to use the Microsoft conference room due to internal policy issues at Microsoft. The REDI conference room can only hold 30 attendees. Please RSVP on Meetup.com/PiMasters. Again, I encourage you to bring your kids if you plan on building projects together with them!
Pi Masters was formed to encourage people of all levels and ages to come together to learn about and experiment with programming, engineering, electronics, and their interests in making digitally enabled devices, specifically using the Raspberry Pi, but also using such platforms as Arduino, BeagleBone and the like. All these platforms are affordable (Raspberry Pi runs around $35), readily available, small in size (just around 2” by 3”), and easy to use. We will share projects that we’ve built and tips to help each other create cool things.
This meetup is a collaborative effort organized by Multi Platform Media and Multi Platform Labs.
Please join us at this exciting event that we hope will bring together a collaborative and supportive maker community here in the Washington DC area.
From A to D: Demonstration on hooking up an analog to digital converter to
make real world measurements of anything, and use them in your programs.

The REDI venue is very convenient to public transportation near the Rockville Metro stop on the Red Line and the Rockville MARC station.
There are several parking garages as well as street parking near REDI’s offices. Please be aware that there is a charge to park and Rockville is very vigilant about ticketing cars parked on the street at meters so be sure to follow all posted signs (there are 30-minute, 1-hour and 2-hour spaces). If you park in one of the lots in Rockville Town Square and eat/drink at one of the local establishments they will validate your ticket to cover the first two hours (note that this unfortunately does not include the parking garage closest to REDI’s offices).
