Great turnout for the Beginner Arduino Workshop on Saturday. Patrick led the class on the basics of microcontrollers and the Arduino. Rick assisted with examples and explanations. We met several new people. Witnessing the spark of imagination kick-in is a lot of fun in these workshops. A basic understanding of sensors and programming logic is all it takes to launch in to Arduino projects. It’s a common gateway for several of our members.
Patrick and Rick ran a RetroPie/Raspberry Pi Workshop Saturday 9/20. Patrick guided the class through the entire process of getting your Raspberry Pi setup for retro gaming. Rick talked about the merits and educational value of Raspberry Pi.
