IPN is a systematic, continuous process of analyzing the threat and environment in a specific area. It is designed to support estimates and decision making.
Applying the IPN process helps you selectively apply and maximize your capabilities at critical points in time and space.
This free course will provide an introduction to the IPN process, and how it applies to individuals and small groups or voluntary associations.

Take the leap from being a consumer of the World Wide Web to a Contributor! After the last workshop where we created a basic web page using basic HTML, we continue on how to create a web page to get you on your way.
JOIN our Team for our latest group project: The Strandbeest ! A creative conversation between to members of the CT Hackerspace Community, Fred and Matthew, has now lead to a new Project at CTH: The Strandbeast Project. Not only is this project highly educational and thought provoking excersize (with a high coolness factor), but is a real possibility thanks to two of our sponsors: Autodesk and Stepcraft CNC.
New Group Project:
Anybody interested in building something with this mechanism???See links below for other exampleshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGOled86Sjo&index=3&t=0s&list=PL49oqRPQBaYxtrROVX6nMMRmp9VpRHzmihttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emW6ymgvvak&t=0s&index=53&list=PL49oqRPQBaYwHcXY2qHvZfIJjAXxGVp8hhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcccj4P727U&t=77s

CT Hackerspace held an official unboxing night October 3rd for the Open Source Maslow CNC System. Maslow CNC is a unique “vertical” CNC router and is notable for its low cost. The unique vertical design mimics a hanging plotter allowing it to have a 4′ x 8′ cutting area with a footprint 10′ wide x 19″ deep.
Maslow CNC graciously provided CT Hackerspace the official kit to start the project. The CT Hackerspace community, active in hobbyiest CNC ventures, immediately took up a collection for additional materials needed to build out the machine. The community is excited to see the Maslow running in our workshop, side by side with 2 existing DIY CNC builds, along with the Stepcraft Multifunction CNC.
The CT Hackerspace Team will continue working on building the Maslow CNC in future Wednesday Nights as well as scheduling some longer workshops in the upcoming future weekends.
If you are interested in learning more, stop by CT Hackerspace during or public Open Space Wednesdays.
Want a cheap and easy way to get WiFi or Bluetooth into your project? Take a look at the ESP8266 and ESP32 modules. Both come on boards that are very inexpensive and can be programmed through the Arduino IDE. These modules can be found all over the internet in various form factors and it can be confusing which to use.

We will attempt to clear up some of the mystery of the module and dig into the capabilities of it. There will also be a review of different boards that the module is available on and look at the differences between them. Finally, we will run some demo projects to demonstrate the capabilities.
You can find these boards on Adafruit, Sparkfun, Amazon, and eBay. So if you would like to play along during the presentation, order them from one of the links below and bring your computer with the Arduino IDE installed and we will walk through getting set up.
