IXR's Microcontroller Mondays ...
... or as I like to say μMondays. While things have not calmed down one bit for me yet I have managed to take a little time out to participate in some friendly Making/Hacking at IXR (Institute for Exploratory Research @ InfoAge in Wall Township, NJ). Last night (Monday, July 2nd 2012) was μMondays. Basically time to play with μControllers (μCs) and electronics. A few of the folks were beginners with μCs and others came to work on their own μC projects, mostly Arduino. I participated in many discussions and helped one gentleman with learning to use the Arduino environment.
The next μMonday will be on Monday June 9th and Dan has promoted me to Co-Host of the event (yes I know that sounds silly ;-) ). Everyone is invited and welcome. We'll have a few extra Arduino Uno boards to work with. We also have other boards to work with and if I can get my act together I should remember to bring them to work with. I do intend to bring my HCS II Home Automation system and begin incorporating my Arduinos boards into it. I detailed my plan for the HCS II in my last blog entry.
Jeff Jonas has suggested that we put something together on the bus pirates. This is not a bad idea but it will take me a few weeks to pull that together as I also need some time to learn how to use it too.
