Hackers (budding, amateurs, etc.) with interests in open hardware e.g. Arduino, ESP8266, ESP32, Raspberry Pi, Onion, OrangePi, etc. are invited to bring along their projects and come hack with us at the meetup. This is an opportunity to meetup with other hackers here in Melbourne, to get your questions answered, to show off the work you are doing and get going on those problems that have stalled progress on your hobby projects. We welcome hackers of all ages, including kids and women with interests in open hardware, open source. Come & Hack with us - The meetup aims to be one big Hacking Session. You can get hands on, form groups, get hacking and work together to solve problems!!!. Our meetups are a great opportunity to ask questions, learn and share what you have learned with the others at the meetup. Hands on Tutorials - Meetups are a great opportunity to collaborate and learn. Members are encouraged to run a short tutorials lasting 20-30 minutes. These tutorials are aimed at helping folks understand the software/hardware stack the RaspberryPi is based on including exploring the use of sensors to interact with the world around you. Watch out for details of the tutorials. You will need to bring along - • Your laptop with an ethernet port and wifi connection • There is no wireless access, so we recommend that you bring along your Phone and 3G internet connection (if you want to connect to the internet). • Raspberry Pi (if you have one) along with a wireless dongle (If you own a Raspberry Pi 2), or your Arduino, ESP8266, ESP32 etc. • A 2.5 A USB Power Adapter if you are using a Raspberry Pi (please be cautious, especially if using a Raspberry Pi 3). For those with ESP8266, ESP32 boards (NodeMCU, Wemo, etc.) a 5v, 2A power supply with a micro USB port is recommended. For those with an Arduino a 5v, 2A regulated power supply with a USB Type B is required. • Ethernet cable if you have one and need to troubleshoot any connectivity issues with the Rasberry Pi • At this point we do not have any monitors but aiming to pull together a couple of monitors which you can borrow for the session. There won't be many to go around so be open to time sharing them...:) Please bring along any Open Hardware or Raspberry Pi projects you have built. We are very keen for members to show and tell, sharing with the community the knowledge they have gained hacking their own projects. Kids are absolutely welcome at the meetup. If you are bringing them along please drop me a note and let me know. You are responsible for making sure your kids stay away from the machines/equipment and stay safe through the session.
