Meeting #2 Our 1st @ i3 Detroit!

This is our second meeting and as Boris would exclaim,  "AROOOO!"

A lot has taken place since our first meeting back in July and much more exciting beagle news is to come as Fall kicks in full-force.   What I can say now is that Jason has been trekking all over the globe for the beagleboard.org project.

I have been doing my own little part too with some fun activities during World Maker Faire including actually getting to be Boris and a few presentations on the Maker Faire Electronics Stage --getting to "open" for Jason was a lot of fun!!!  

My hope is that everyone has had some time since last meeting to tinker with a BeagleBoard or a BeagleBone.  If you need some help getting started you would do well to head to http://learn.adafruit.com/category/beaglebone and work through the lessons.  Additionally, I encourage you to check out Matt Richardson's forthcoming MAKE title, "Getting Started with the BeagleBone."   I have read through an advanced copy and can recommend the book for anyone who wants an accessible book on both the BeagleBone White & Black.

Hope to see everyone in October!!!

    Great Meetup! The tutorial demonstrated many aspects of the beagle bone in a simple and straight forward manner.
