BASIC SIG (August 4th, 2015)... has a new (real) home!
Announcing a real home for the BASIC SIG meetings; this means that the meetings will actually happen every month starting August 4th (every first Tuesday)!!!!
What makes this announcement even more AWESOME is where it actually is going to be...
Thanks to a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, the North Richland Hills Public Library has created a very special place for people like you and I... the hobbyist! As part of this project, they've also set aside a portion of this space for meetings just like the BASIC SIG and, with a huge smile, I can say that the BASIC SIG is the first regularly scheduled meeting that will be taking place in this new space!!!! To read more about this awesome new space, please visit http://themakerspot.org.
Yes, this means that the meetings will no longer be taking place at my home. I sigh, however, my wife rejoices. ;-) This does mean that more people can attend and that, as a whole, the thing is more real.
The August 4th, 2015 meeting will be:
Programming devices that cost less than $50
In this session we will cover various devices that cost less than $50 ranging from Arduino, Netduino, Galileo, Rasberry Pi 2 and Windows Phone...
Pizza will be provided, please RSVP so we know how much to order.
Yes, the meetings up to this point have been hit and miss, so I want to share part of this has because we needed a location and that location has been a long time coming since it was "literally being built". Also, as a requirement to meet at this location, I also have to state: This event is not sponsored or endorsed by the by the North Richland Hills Library, The Maker Spot or the City of North Richland Hills.
