Arduino Night – Wednesday January 14, 2015

We are back at it again starting this week! Wednesday January 14th we will be hosting our first Arduino night of 2015. Officially we start at 7:00 PM and as always there will be a selection of parts and accessories available starting at 6:00 PM.

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!

What do I need to bring?
You do not need to bring anything to observe, but we do recommend brining a laptop and an Arduino microcontroller if you would like to really get into it. If you have an Arduino based project you are working on, bring that!

I don’t have an Arduino, can I pick one up at Arduino night?
Of course – we will have an sampling of Arduino microcontrollers, accessories, and other prototyping materials available for browsing and purchase on site. Alternatively, if you have specific items in mind, please place the order ahead of time using our online store, select “local pickup” for the shipping option, and just let us know in the order notes that you will be attending the Arduino night – This is a no charge service we offer.

Does this event cost anything?
If you are a member of Makerspace Nanaimo (Friend, Student, or Full) this is a free event covered by your membership. For non-members we do ask you to make a small $5.00 donation to the Makerspace to ensure events like this have a home in the future. If you would like to become a member, Makerspace Nanaimo will have members on hand to help you or you can sign up now online!

Where is it located?
Arduino night is hosted at Makerspace Nanaimo – 2221A McGarrigle Road, just off of Northfield Road, in Nanaimo.
