Back by Popular Demand! Learn to Weld Things that don’t fall apart! April 19th + 22nd

Reserve your Space Today!

Space is Limited!

Many DIY projects require welding. This can be a show stopper for many hobbyists. Do you dream of building a roll cage, bicycle, tools or furniture?

In this two day introductory workshop, you will learn the fundamentals of welding.

We will start with a bit of basic theory and safety. It can be intimidating to get started welding because of the potential dangers involved and the complexity of the equipment.

Starting with torch welding has a lot of advantages, what you learn by torch welding is applicable to all other forms of welding.

We will also talk about welding on a budget, and what types of welding are best for you.

This two day class will cover:

• Safety

• Oxyfuel welding

• Oxyfuel cutting

• Brazing

Additional classes will build upon what you have learned and will include;

• MIG welding (GMAW)

• TIG welding (GTAW)

• Plasma Cutting

The introductory workshop will be required for future workshops, as the information builds upon past classes.

Taught by Wade Barocsi an automotive welding and metallurgy instructor at NVCC.

Thursday April 19th 6:30-8:30pm and Sunday April 22 11:00-1:30

Programming Night at CT Hackerspace Every third Tuesday!

Come join us once a month (every third Tuesday) to share and learn about the craft of software development at 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! Your Topics also welcome – this night is for everyone to share.

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.
