Hello and Welcome,
Details of next week's meetings are below.
Tuesday 12 January - Programming - N Hoffman - 5:30pm - 8:30pm
At the December meeting Steve spoke about learning to use the Arduino microcontroller, and showed us the Arduino controlled moving message display he built. He said it took him a fraction of the time it would have taken to code it from scratch.
Alex showed a circuit he built and coded to display the variations of the computer load on an analogue multimeter.
Jon spoke of C.H.I.P., the $9 computer launched recently with Kickstarter. As well as being a small, cool inexpensive computer, it claims to be a complete system for building projects that require remote control, network connectivity, and interfacing with people and the environment.
