First Monday Electronics

Monday, 01/05/2015 7:00 pm
The Foundry, 298 Northampton Street, Buffalo, NY 14208
Details | Event Website

This will be a meetup for anyone interested in electronic circuits, microcontrollers, and learning more about how electronic things work. It will be held the first Monday of each month.

If you already have a laptop and an Arduino (or compatible microcontroller), bring them and we will find things for you to learn. I'll help explain, too, but the best way to learn is to do.

If you don't understand what I just said about an ada-whosie-whatsit, show up and I can show you what a microcontroller is, how circuits work, and how to make things blink!

Here's the best part... To force myself to stay on top of this event, at the end of the night, we will group-think assignments for people that want to go further. This means every month you show up, you get to help decide the topics for the next month. Then at the next meetup, everyone who took on an assignment can show it off (and maybe even explain the circuit/code/build process).

The Lambs Club, NYC, Buffalo, NY 14202

HOSTED BY

E. Patrice Perkins, Albany Chapter Director

An Army brat, Patrice lived in Germany; Hawaii and several less exotic locations during her father’s illustrious 29 year military career. A propensity for the limelight first surfaced when Patrice thoroughly routed second grade competition to appear live on the German public access show, “Potpourri", as one of Santa’s Reindeer Keepers.  She encountered a less appreciative audience state-side, however, and following an unsuccessful audition for The High School for Performing Arts in New York City, Patrice set out to prove the critics wrong. Words are her forte and she has parlayed a gift for people engagement into a myriad of successful situations: event planner; paralegal; executive assistant; director of marketing; writer; editor; proofreader; prospect researcher; narrator and producer of documentaries; workshop presenter; poetess, television/radio interviewer, and most recently, Chapter Director for Startup Grind Albany. A newish and thrilling role for Patrice is as philanthropist, having just founded a memorial scholarship fund at SUNY Empire State College in honor of her mother, Margaret “Peggy” Perkins that awarded its first scholarship in the fall of 2014.
