Arduino Night – October 29th @ 7:30 PM

In the Nanaimo area? No plans tonight? Want to learn about Arduino? Come on in to Makerspace Nanaimo where we will be hosting an Arduino Seminar! It starts at 7:30PM and covers the basics of the Arduino. We will be working directly from the workbook included in the Arduino Starter Kit so we do recommend picking one up if you do plan to keep attending this weekly seminar.

BeagleBone Accessories and more!

With the addition of the BeagleBone Black to our catalogue last week we thought it might be a good idea to get a few of the essential accessories up there as well! To start we have a BeagleBone Black case – this two piece case looks amazing and fits the BeagleBone Black quite well.


New Products!

This week we have a couple more new products added to the store. First up: the USBtinyISP AVR Programmer kit – this is a great soldering project that, when completed, leaves you with a very useful programming tool. The programmer is compatible with almost all Arduino and “Minimal Arduino” with less than 64K flash memory and works great with avrdude.


Makerspace Meeting / Arduino Night

A few notes about Nanaimo Makerspace to start off this short week!

There will be an Open Meeting / Social gathering at the space tonight (Tuesday) beginning around 6:30 PM. Guests are invited to come in and check the place out – there are always plenty of people on hand to give you a tour.


Turkey Weekend

Just a reminder – this Monday, October 13th is Thanksgiving holiday here in Canada. All orders received after 1:00 PM Pacific Time will be shipped Tuesday October 14th. Enjoy the long weekend – we will be back with more great new products on Tuesday!
