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!
