Those on the email list have noticed Alex Davis has been putting a lot of effort into learning to use KiCad. The board below is evidence he’s making progress. Join Alex to get the details and share about this and other subjects.
The monthly meeting of the Triangle Embedded Interest Group will be Monday the 9th starting at 7pm in room 1005 of NCSU Engineering Building One, 911 Partners Way, Raleigh. This will be the bldg and room through May.
There is no set program for this meeting yet. Bring your projects, short show and tells, questions and project challenges to share.
Paul MacDougal will talk about alternatives to the classic Arduino beginning program and shares this summary:
“Blink is a great first example for Arduino programming, but a really bad example of embedded programming. With 99.9% of its time spent in delay(), nothing else can happen. This talk will show how to rewrite blink in several different ways to allow it to play nicely with other functions.”
Join Paul and others at NCSU for the regular meeting. More details on the “at NCSU” meeting page.
This month’s meeting will feature a talk by Alex Davis about his remote monitoring system via inexpensive radio and free cloud computing.

If time allows Pete Soper will describe the consequences of an impulse DMM buy when he temporarily broke his good meter.
Traffic Intersection Lights
August’s meeting included a project retrospective and demo of Brian Grawburg’s Raspberry Pi/Python driven traffic light simulation. This is part of a set of teaching tools Brian has developed for teaching Python to area youths at the Imagination Station in Wilson, NC Brian’s project is described in his article in the December, 2014 MagPi magazine (page 4) as well as on his project page.

The monthly meeting of the Triangle Embedded Interest Group will be this Monday starting at 7pm in room 2201 of NCSU Engineering Building Three, 911 Oval Drive, Raleigh. This will be the bldg and room through August. This is straight across the green from building 1 (down the hill from building 2).
This month will be completely “open mike”. Bring your projects, short show and tells, questions and project challenges to share. If you have something suitable for a video recording on YouTube please let us know ahead of time. Ditto if you would like to present at a future meeting.

I created a page about my recent presentation with a link to the slides here. Video will be uploaded when it is ready. There is some explanation about the dropped characters we saw in demoB.
