Since clocks are a “thing” now, and people are thinking about building them, the space will be open this Saturday from noon to 4PM. If anyone wants to come and build their clock or teach someone else how to do it, come on by. We have a few Ardiunos for sale and many random electrical bits around but you will need some parts and plans.
The class last week went very well but attendance was a little less than expected. Everyone got a great intro to Arduino programming and simple circuits. There were no slides but we used these websites during the class:
These are the official Arduino sites for downloading the IDE and buying parts that support the Arduino creators. You can buy Arduino products at other sites for a little less or you can buy arduino knock offs for a lot cheaper but the arduino.cc site supports the people creating the platform.

There are a ton different talks in various categories including Linux desktop, infrastructure, security, kernel, and hardware. Check out the schedule here:
