Hacking & Developer Night at 9/18 7pm: Discussing JavaScript

 

19 Across:

Coffee Cursive

 

 

Tonight’s Workshop we will talk about Javascript. From the beginner who wants to understand the basics, to the more seasoned programmer that wants to discuss more in depth, we will explore the world of JavaScript which is so embedded in today’s applications.

Come join us once a month to share and learn about the craft of software development, at the CT Hackerspace. We are a group of developers, programmers, hackers, creators and inventors committed to learning new coding skills, and furthering our software projects.

If you’re totally new to programming, we can guide you through the basics and introduce you to a community of other people all working to improve their own skills in a supportive environment. And if you’re an experienced developer already, think of this as your chance to get some cool work done, or a chance to pick up a new technical skill!

Wednesday Night Spotlight 10/3 – Maslow Open Source CNC Unboxing

Wednesday Night Spotlight 10/3

Maslow Open Source CNC Unboxing

 

During October 3rd’s Open Space, Join us as we will celebrate the start of CT Hackerspace’s next Group Project, the Maslow CNC. Maslow is a community driven open source project with the goal of making large format CNC technology available to everyone. We believe in a world where people everywhere can collaborate, share, and build amazing things together. We will Open up our starter package, and make plans to start this new tool build.

Maslow is a large (4’x8′) CNC cutting machine designed to let you cut big, useful things out of wood and other flat materials. Cut out a tiny house, a kayak, a tree house, some furniture, or anything else you can imagine. Maslow is designed to be affordable to buy, cheap to ship, easy to use, and powerful. Because designs can be shared digitally, you can build on the work of others or create your own from scratch.

ArduinoPi at CT Hackerspace Presents Workshop: Sending Data to the Cloud – Pt Deaux on 5/10/2018

There was so much information in the first session that we had to split into two! In the first session, we learned about shields for the Arduino, using a temperature sensor with the Arduino, and using libraries for both. We also had an overview of the Internet of Things, the Cloud, and dashboards on IoT services such as Adafruit IO.

On May 10th, we are going to bring it all together where we will set up a dashboard on Adafruit IO, read the temperature sensor, and push the data to the dashboard for our viewing pleasure! We will need the Ethernet shield, temperature sensor breakout board, and our Arduino.

If you don’t already have an account on adafruit.com, create one before the class. If you have already bought something on adafruit.com or created and an account, it should transfer over to Adafruit IO. Test it out at io.adafruit.com.

Bring your Arduino, Laptop with Arduino IDE working, USB cable.

ArduinoPi Presents: Raspberry Pi Demo and Build Night 3/22/2018

 

The second part of our group name goes beyond the Arduino into the Raspberry Pi. In this meeting we will give a short intro into the single board computer and learn what its capabilities are. Discussion will include setup, programming, and various projects that are popular on this board.

The second half of the night will be dedicated to working on projects. If you have a Raspberry Pi that you would like to get set or work with, bring it along. This is the perfect time to get comfortable with the board or work on your own project.
