OSHUG event

Pt 2786
Looks like there’s an Open source hardware user group in the UK, if anyone goes drop up us a note!

Event #1 — An introduction to XCore XS1 and Amino. On the 29th April 2010 at Osmosoft, London UK (51.498325, -0.134347) For the inaugural event we are fortunate to have presentations from Prof. David May FRS, CTO of XMOS Semiconductor, and Alan Wood of Folknology Labs. Please register to attend via Eventbrite and share on Upcoming.

Open Source Hardware
Open source hardware is an approach to building physical objects with the principle of allowing collaborative development, use and tinkering through the liberal licensing of artefacts such as manuals, software, schematic diagrams and CAD documents. Typical open source hardware projects range from simple electronic circuits to digital and radio systems, through reprogrammable computing platforms, to hardware that combines elements of electronic, mechanical and software engineering, such as 3D printers and laser engravers.

Scope
We welcome discussion on open source software but ideally there should be a hardware hacking or open source hardware link, as there are already Linux user groups which provide excellent opportunities for open source software enthusiasts to discuss, meet and share experiences. Mostly based in and around London, we aim to organise regular meetings in addition to communicating via the mailing list. However, membership is open to all regardless of location and ability to attend meetings. Furthermore, this is not a “land grab” and we’d be happy to help, where we can, if you are interested in starting up local groups elsewhere – whether that be sharing online resources or simply advice.

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.
