BASIC SIG (September 2nd, 2014)
Arduino *AND* Raspberri Pi (Oh My!)
After discussing with several people, I came to the realization that since the format of this group is different than the typical presentation style meeting, we can easily handle BOTH! Remember, this is a BASIC-themed hackerspace. It's not really about "presentations", more about being hands on. Instead of "watching", it's about doing. The only "rule" (if you want to call it that), is "if it can be done with BASIC, it should be done basic BASIC". ;-)
On one side of the room, we will be working on getting VB.NET through Mono working on a Raspberry Pi.
On the other side of the room, we will be getting an introduction to BCX to build for the Arduino along with everything that needs to be done to get an environment setup to do so. We will also be learning more about what the Arduino is, playing with some simple electronics projects (along with covering some of the basics of electronics). Even if you don't have an Arduino, we will be looking at ways that you can still experiment (and learn) even without actual hardware. If you do have the hardware, be sure to bring it along. If you don't, just bring a laptop and you can still be involved.
There are also a few BASIC SIG group related things to discuss, so we'll knock those out at the start of the meeting so we can get to the fun.
I'll be ordering pizza once everyone has arrived (or I know you are definitely coming), so please RSVP (location, date, time, etc. included in the RSVP link).
See you there.
