    Microcontrollers are small single chip computers that execute programs in memory to control connected electronic devices.  Put more simply, you use code to read from and control lights, sensors, motors, and relays. 


    Some examples of microcontrollers typically used by hobbyists:

    • Arduino
    • Beaglebone
    • Raspberry Pi*
    *Raspberry Pi is actually a more than a microcontroller but can be used as such

    This group meets at the space weekly to discuss microcontrollers, work on projects, and argue about implementation details / architecture.  

    This is open to the public, and to all interest levels.  Even if you have never written a line of code in your life, we can show you the basics and how to write a basic program on a simple circuit.

    EDIT: Sorry for the confusion, the date is Monday, April 30th for this.

    Are you interested in using a Raspberry Pi (RPi) for projects, but don't know how to get started?

    If so, come to our "Introduction to Raspberry Pi" session at the Annapolis Makerspace.

    We'll first go over how to set up the RPi straight out of the box using NOOBS. Afterwards, we'll discuss the basics of navigating the Linux command line interface and editing configuration files.

    In subsequent sessions, we'll concentrate on specific popular RPi-based projects such as:

    - Internet accessible security camera

    - Smart mirror

    - Media server

    While not required, feel free to bring your own computer and Raspberry Pi (with SD card [minimum 8GB required for NOOBS] and power supply).
