First Monday Electronics

Monday, 12/01/2014 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).

9/5/14:  David Bishop's talk has been rescheduled from Thursday, October 23, to Thursday, December 4. Time of day and place remain the same. A new speaker will be scheduled for October 23.

Our speaker, David Bishop, has been a linux systems administrator for over 15 years. He earned his gray hair fighting in the great Linux vs. Windows War of the early 2000's, getting his Purple Heart trying to make "soft modems" work in Redhat Linux 6.2. He will present excerpts from his talk, "Everything You Need To Know About Systems Administration, Ever, in 30 Minutes or Less," then discuss how to use Puppet to automate provisioning and running databases, thus allowing the hardworking DBA more time to spend optimizing queries or whatever it is they do all day.


NSC is more or less between the Governor's and Hochstetter parking lots. No permit is required after 3PM. 

We'll continue with light refreshments as we've been doing. Let's set 7:00 as the meet and get settled time with the talk starting at 7:15. Please rsvp so I know how many are coming. We have a new sponsor: Empire Innovation Group
