Arduino Night – March 11th at 7:00 PM

Tonight is once again, Arduino Night! We will be officially we starting at 7:00 PM and hope to see even more of you out this week!

What is an Arduino Night?
An Arduino night is a gathering of people interested in Arduino. At an Arduino night people tinker, collaborate, and learn together in a fun social atmosphere. At one table there may be a discussion about the best way to read multiple sensors and output the data to the web while at another table there may be a group working their way through the very basics of the Arduino Starter kit – there is always something for everyone!

Happy Monday!

Last week was an exciting week with the release of the new Raspberry Pi 2B. We are happy to say that any pre-orders placed last Monday (and for the most part Tuesday) will be shipping out this coming Wednesday, a few days earlier than expected! If you are still interested in picking up a Raspberry Pi 2B we do recommend pre-ordering as it is the best way to ensure you get one in the near future.

If you are looking to get a Raspberry Pi and do not need the newest model, we do have a few options available. The Raspberry Pi B+ and Raspberry Pi B+ with 8GB NOOBS are both on sale, and very capable. We also have the Raspberry Pi A+ back in stock, this version of the Pi will not be updated this year, and is great for low power applications.
