Topic: Arduino programming basics

Where: 3043 Coover Addition (3rd floor conference room)

When: Tues, Oct. 23, 2018 at 8:00 p.m.

What to bring: Your Arduino, an A-to-B USB cable, and your laptop for interfacing. (There will be a few spare Arduinos available to use if you don't have one yet.)

If you plan to attend, please send me an email or contact me on Slack to let me know. (If there aren’t enough people interested in this introductory stuff, we can skip the meeting.) Even though the programming activity is meant for neophytes, you hardened veterans are definitely welcome to attend to provide advice and tell war stories.

Topic: How to solder
Where: 3043 Coover Addition (3rd floor conference room) and 2011 Coover
When: Tues, Oct. 9, 2018 at 8:00 p.m.

We will have a short lesson on the basics of soldering and then retire to the lab to try soldering together a small circuit that uses a 555 timer to blink some LEDs.

If you would like to partake, let GTuttle know (via email or Slack) and then show up at 8:00. (We need to know how many people are participating so that we bring enough parts for everyone.) The presentation will be less than 30 minutes and then we will have an hour or so to practice. Things to bring: Some of your EE 201 lab kit tools — needle-nose pliers, wire cutter, wire stripper, and small screw driver (for adjusting the potentiometer) – and $4 to pay for the parts.
