What we're about

Snohomish County makers seeking like-minded for shared skills, equipment, projects.

We are looking for new and used (skilled, ha-ha) makers to join us putting on workshops, social events, and sharing workshop time. We have interests in electronics, programming, robotics, microcontrollers, 3D printing, laser cutters (additive and subtractive technologies), arts, molding, casting, routing, and woodworking. We have a great space in South Everett a stones throw from Boeing with super easy access for drivers and bus riders alike. Join us at an open house and bring a friend!

*** Requesting to join our meetup group? Make sure you are obviously part of the local area (members of other area groups, a photo, OR something that says “hey I’m not a robot”... at a minimum be a little chatty in the join question. We get a lot of attempted spammers requesting a join and decline people from out of the area***

Our website is http://www.snocomakers.org and if you need some technical help or conversation join us at our facebook group page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/10576893376 ...

We hope you will consider membership for access outside workshops! If you feel like you'd qualify for a scholarship membership please contact any board member or officer. We will put the tools in your hands and show you how to use them.

IoT End to End

Online event

We went through the IoT 101 where you connected an ESP8266 device with a temperature and humidity sensor to Adafruit.IO service and you were able to send telemetry data and get on/off commands to control a LED. Then we set up your development machines with WSL + Ubuntu, Windows Terminal, MQTT.fx, Mosquitto and Node-red. We also learned a little more about the MQTT protocol, how to use Node-red and connection to external providers. In this new chapter on the IoT series, we'll leverage everything we already did to get to an end to end solution by: 1. Setup a Raspberry Pi as a server (or an Ubuntu virtual server in the cloud) a. Mosquitto b. Node Red c. Influx database d. Grafana 2. Configure the ESP8266 to send a payload to this server (Raspberry Pi or Ubuntu) 3. Configure the server: a. Create MQTT topics on Mosquitto b. Create the database on Influx c. Create the data transformation rules to break and format the payload on node-Red and insert the data into the database d. Create a basic dashboard in Grafana Pre-requisites: 1. Have attended the IoT 101 2. Have attended the MQTT open talk 3. Have the ESP8266 + temperature sensor we used on the IoT 101 4. Have either: a. Raspberry Pi, clean Raspbian install, configured, powered up, and accessible via SSH b. Ubuntu 19.04 server configured, clean install, powered up and accessible via SSH 5. Connect remotely (via SSH) to your server and run apt-get update and upgrade (no Mosquitto or node-red required as a pre-requisite) 6. Run apt-get update and apt-get upgrade on your Raspberry Pi. RSVP here. Be early, the host starts **on time**. [Cost] No cost - if you are a Makerspace members (how can I tell? If you pay the monthly membership fee, then you're a member.) $ 20.00 open to all. Please pay using PayPal before the class -> [masked] Member or not Member? I'm confused: If you're a meetup member, but you don't pay the monthly fee, then you're not considered a Makerspace member, but you can still attend this workshop using the paid option. HOW TO ATTEND: just click the link below, and choose between downloading the Teams client or join using a Web interface, both works perfectly. Make sure you have a good headset or a quiet place to join the online session. This is an ONLINE only event. The event will be hosted using Microsoft Teams.
