Circuit Hacking Monday — Monday night, 5pm, at Noisebridge, 15-February (SF, CA)

Mkjr1-2 2
If you’re in the San Fran, CA area – this is one event to check out!

After giving his famous workshop at hackerspaces and hacker conferences around the world, Mitch will be at Noisebridge to lead Circuit Hacking Monday, the weekly workshop where you can learn to play with electronics.

This week will be a special edition for the holidays, starting at an earlier time — 5pm. And, in honor of Hallmark Appreciation Day, we will have Open Heart kits available.  Open Heart kits have 27 LEDs in the shape of a heart.  With an Arduino you can create cool animation sequences.  As with all of the kits available, they are way fun, and easy enough that anyone can make them. Mitch has taught thousands of people to solder and make cool things with microcontrollers at 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 for Circuit Hacking Mondays at Noisebridge.  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 session, and take your cool project home with you.

What:  Mitch will be lead this session of Circuit Hacking Monday. You can easily learn all of the skills you need in one session. Make a project tonight, and take it home with you! If you have your own project (advanced or simple), bring it by, and if you would like help, you can get it!

Where: Noisebridge 2169 Mission, San Francisco, 94110 (less than two blocks from the 16th St. Mission BART Station).

When:  5:00pm (2 hours earlier than normal), Monday, 15-February. (It is totally OK to come late.) Stay as little or as long as you like. Most projects take about 1 to 2 hours  — but someone will be there to help each person till they finish.

Who: You!  It is fun to make things in the friendly community of Noisebridge. Come join us.  Everyone is welcome.

Cost: Instruction is Free! If you use any kits, reimbursement for kit price is requested ($10 to $30, 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!)
  • Mignonette Game (play fun games!)
  • Trippy RGB Waves (interactive blinky lights!)
  • MiniPOV (more cool blinky lights!)
  • MintyBoost (charge your USB enabled gadgets!)
  • microcontroller programmers (program all your AVR family chips!)
  • Arduino clones (make just about anything!)
  • Open Heart (animate fun patterns in the shape of a heart)
  • And more.

More info on most of most of these projects is available on Mitch’s website: (click on the “maker faire” tab). If you have your own project, please bring it by and make it with us, in the friendly, geeky community of Noisebridge.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
