Sweltering heat and marshmallow guns made up the first half of the event.  Then we ran out of marshmallow guns...

It was another dizzying night at First Friday. We were set up in the same spot in the Kid's Zone as in July, but this time, they moved the stage so it wasn't quite as loud.

This class is limited to 25 participants, so RSVP now to get in!

The world is abuzz with credit card sized computers that are inexpensive and easy enough for home hobbyists, artists, and professionals to use.  One such computer is the Arduino, created by a group of Italian researchers and released freely to the world.

We've also been fielding a lot of questions on how to use a breadboard, how to solder, and how to go further with Arduino. That's how Prototyping, Soldering, and Arduino Hack Night came to be.

This class has a hard limit of 25 participants, so RSVP now to get in!

We were completely stunned by the great attendance at the Introduction to Arduino course.  This class picks up where introduction left off. We will be doing the introduction again late August.

We met with Zachary Delbex of RePurpose America on Saturday and took a tour of his warehouse.  His non-profit takes materials left over from trade shows in Las Vegas and "repurposes" them into other things.  His warehouse is like candyland.  Everywhere you look, there's something cool to play with.  We're looking forward to working with Zach on some projects.
