Hands-on Hardware Workshop
When: Saturday, March 3rd, 9:30 a.m.
Where: Madison Public Library, 201 W Mifflin St, Bubbler Room (first floor)
Are you a software developer who knows something about writing code, but haven’t actually touched much physical hardware? Are you curious about it? Want to have your own little project, complete with flashing lights and funny-looking electronic parts? Want to impress people by knowing what a resistor, capacitor or CPU is and looks like? Have you ever been interested in learning how to solder?
If so, please join us for this hands on workshop!
We will start with a short overview of soldering skills and electronics basics, and then we will get our hands dirty! You will put these new skills to use by assembling a Game of Life kit from Adafruit. At the end, you will have a great conversation piece to take home, and if time allows we will learn the theory behind the Game of Life.
Light snacks, coffee, and other beverages will be provided along with some time to chat and mingle.
$15 materials fee covers supplies. Scholarships available. If you would like to attend but the cost is prohibitive, please contact the organizers via Eventbrite.
