You've heard us talking about it and now here it is!

Mitch Altman and Jimmie Rodgers are going to be in town and will be giving
one of his famous workshops at Arch Reactor!

If you don't know, Mitch is one of the founders of Noisebridge, the San
Francisco Hackerspace and has taught thousands of people to solder and make
cool things with microcontrollers at his workshops at hacker spaces and
hacker conferences and schools almost everywhere. He can teach you, too, if
you like.


If you have ever had any curiosity about making something with electronics,
then please join us. Anyone and everyone can learn to make cool things. And
it’s fun. And easy! You can learn to make something cool with electronics in
one workshop, and take your cool project home with you!

When: 6:30pm - Friday Aug. 20th Stay as long or as little as you like, most
projects take 1-2 hours.

Where: Arch Reactor Hackerspace - 2400 S. Jefferson

Who: All skill levels, beginner to expert. Everyone is welcome and you do
not have to be a member to come. However, due to space, only the first 20
folks to register will be guaranteed seats at the work tables.
We'll accommodate more if possible.

Cost: This Event is Free! If you use any kits, reimbursement for kit price
is requested ($10 to $20, depending on kit). There will be plenty of cool
kits available to build, including:

TV-B-Gone (turn off TVs in public places!)
Brain Machine (Meditate, Hallucinate, and Trip Out!)
LEDcube (cool cube of blinky lights!)
Mignonette Game (play fun games!)
Trippy RGB Waves (interactive colored blinky lights!)
MiniPOV (more cool blinky lights!)
MintyBoost (charge your USB enabled gadgets!)

and for the more advanced:
microcontroller programmers (program all your AVR family chips!), Arduino
clones (make just about anything!), and more.

More info on most of most of these projects is available on Mitch’s
website: http://www.CornfieldElectronics.com<http://www.cornfieldelectronics.com/>
(click
on the “maker faire” tab).

If you'd like to bring your own project, that's fine too. Come on by and get
some expert advice from a guy who has literally taught thousands.


If you wish to attend, you will need to sign up at the following form:
http://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?formkey=dGgxb3lPQzVBUGZ5Nk9tMFFzdWc0dWc6MQ

Hope to see you there!

How do we know if we were signed up early enough to be "guaranteed a seat"?

You ask. And you are. :)

There are actually 13 people signed up, so there are still plenty of spaces
left.

I have friends (non-members) who are interested - when will this be open to

my fault - didn't read the whole thing. At the meeting on Tuesday Deech said
he'd open it to members first, then the public.

Right. I did. It was on the members only list, but now it's on the public
list. There are 15 people signed up. If you have folks that want to go, get
em signed up! :)

GOOD NEWS! The noise making Drawdio kit that my brother assembled at
tonights workshop does an excellent job of driving the dog crazy!

If anyone has any pictures of the event, could they please funnel them to me? I'd use them for the blog post, of course.

Also, it seems I forgot to grab one of Matt's cards. Could someone toss his email address my way?

Thanks!

I'm sure that matt got a bunch of good pictures. Maybe he'll share. ;-)

I'll send it to you.

Also, I wanted to thank everyone involved in putting this together. I
had a TON of fun. I got my evilmadscientist Arduino put together last
night and it works beautifully. For anyone else who got one, I can
report that it is pre-programmer with a blink program on at least pin
13. So you can test without having to hook it up to your computer.

Also, word has it that the lol shield functions better without the
arduino's LED on pin 13. So leave it off if you haven't already
installed it.

I haven't started my lol shield yet. But once that's done I have been
challanged to create tetras with the new grayscale functionality.

Anyone get any other tips on setting up the arduino + lol shield? Or
can anyone share tips from the experience in soldering their lol
shield?

Do it in rows, longways. It's much faster then doing it shortways.

Things I learned from my lolshield experience:

1. Don't use non-lead solder. This requires too much heat and
messes up your traces.
2. If you need to remove a LED: heat up the solder then quickly
slam the board against the table and the led will fly out(I'm not
kidding)
3. If you need to unclog a hole:heat up the solder then quickly
slam the board against the table and the solder will fly out
4. If you screw up a trace, there is a way to make it logically
work by soldering a lead between two specific LED's. This can be
figured out by
complex diagrams of the circuit board that Jimmy has available online.
5. You can screw up a trace by: overheating it, heating it and
putting the tip of your iron in it(which will extract the trace from
the board)
6. Anything you screw up, you can probably fix by logically troubleshooting.
7. Don't overheat the LED's. This will make them not work and make
you have to remove them and replace them.
8. Don't install the board's LED.
9. If you install the board as directed on the sheet, don't power
the board by battery when plugged into the computer via FTDI cable
10. The battery pack is soldered into the two pins labeled Ext Vin
4.5-55 VDC. black goes to gnd and red goes to vcc
11. Don't upload the program when the lolshield is mounted. If you
have upload problems, check the com port and disconnect the usb and
reconnect it.
12. Longways led installation has the advantage of being able to
solder both leads simultaneously. Shortways makes it easier to
individually aligned the leds flush with the board. I liked longways
better. I think I have an idea for a tool that would make this
process a lot easier.

Thanks for the advice. I got all the LEDs soldered right before my
super-cheap soldering iron decided it was time to die. Need to go get a new
one to finish off the leads. Anyone have any suggestions on where/what to
buy? I don't want to spend a bunch of money on one, but I'd like one that
can live through a 3 hour soldering session. :-)

I am willing to put up more than 3 bucks. :-)

I guess I was thinking in the 20 dollar range (if that's reasonable).

You can get a 25W Weller for about 15 bucks (you can use the amazon link on
our homepage and search for the Weller SP23LK as an example - free shipping
with Prime, and AR gets a kickback :-).

I like the little Wellers because the collar glows orange when they're
plugged in - easier to see that it's on. And it has changeable tips.

I've been using a $30 35Watt Weller for 15 years. I very much recommend the
Weller route.

I've uploaded a blog post with the pictures to the site. The photos have been provided by Matt Mets, and larger versions can be found in his flickr stream. The links are in the post.

Hope you guys check it out. I'd wanna see a nice big spike in traffic on Google Analytics.
