Arduino Night – Wednesday May 6th

This Wednesday we will be hosting the last Arduino Night at Makerspace Nanaimo before we break for the summer. We will be hosting a variety of different events over the coming months to switch things up a bit so stay tuned for them!

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!
