First Monday Electronics

Monday, 05/04/2015 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).

Database Seminar for May 28, 2015 - Firebase and Client Side Programming

Thursday, 05/28/2015 7:00 pm
UB North Campus, Davis Hall Room 113A, 1 White Rd, Amherst, NY 14228
Details | Event Website

Our Speaker will be Nick Gianadda. He Tells me the following. I am planning on putting together a slide deck and discussion on Firebase and the concepts revolving around "3 way binding" and using Javascript/REST from the client side as a querying mechanism. ​

[Firebase is an online service that helps you build "realtime" web applications, including collaboration tools, multiplayer games, and, yes, chat clients. The trick is that you can build these applications without creating any software that runs on a server. You can put all your software logic in the client.] This is from http://www.wired.com/2012/04/firebase/

Who is Nick Gianadda? As the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Algonquin Studios, I am responsible for overseeing all technical aspects of the company.  Working with Executive Management to grow Algonquin Studios through the use of technological resources. Using an active and practical approach, I direct all employees in Development and Support departments to attain our strategic goals and strategic plan. In my role, I am tasked to assure the successful execution of our business mission of delivering high quality, beautiful and secure software to our clients and partners. I've spent the last 12 years performing nearly every role at Algonquin. My background is based in Microsoft .NET technologies and SQL Server.


Davis Hall is on White Road near the bookstore. Parking is available in the Jarvis Lot across the Road. No permit is required after 3:00 PM.
