    Online event

    Unfortunately we still cannot meet offline, tinkering together is not compatible with 1,5m distance...:-( This meeting will be online via Skype, join if you're working on a project or trying to learn Arduino etc. The idea is that we'll be tinkering at home but not alone, as you can chat and ask questions to other people experimenting at their home! Just dm your Skypename to Manon and she'll add you to the monthly call.
