SHARC LinkSprite IoT Workshop

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to let you control and monitor just about anything from anywhere in the world.

Attendees may optionally purchase a LinkSprite IoT kit after the workshop.

***NOTE*** This is a joint Meetup with SHARC: Greater Denver Area Robotics and the Denver Microcontroller / FPGA / Embedded Group. Please RSVP only once.

SHARC KiCAD Workshop

KiCAD is a professional-level Electronic Design Automation software suite that is open-source, cross-platform and completely free to use. If you are currently using a limited package such as EAGLE Light Edition or even a professional tool like Altium Designer, you may find KiCAD to be an attractive alternative. If you have never used an EDA toolset, KiCAD is a great place to start.

In this two-part workshop, Richard Howlett will show how to design a custom Arduino board using KiCAD’s schematic editor and PCB layout software. You will learn how to create symbols and libraries and take your design through manufacturing.

You can get a head start by downloading and installing KiCAD from here: http://www.kicad-pcb.org

Note: This is a joint Meetup with SHARC and the Denver Microcontroller / FPGA / Embedded Meetup Groups. Please RSVP to each of the two sessions only once.

SHARC 2015 Rover Rally / AVC / 300+ Celebration!

We’re coming off a fantastic few months with great showings at both the Parker Rover Rally and the SparkFun AVC. We swept the Micro/PBR and Student awards with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in both classes.

In addition, we’re closing in on 300 members!

Let’s get together at Deep Space to celebrate our Rover Rally / AVC successes and welcome our new members. 

If you participated in the Rover Rally and/or AVC, please bring your ‘bots. We hope the winners will be willing to share some of their secrets to success.

See you there!
