Arduino Meetup

A meeting to talk about and work on Arduino projects, as well as Raspberry Pi and other microcontrollers. Even if you've never heard of Arduino, come by MAKE Ventura and see what these versatile devices can do. It's free to all, and there may be food and drinks.

I'm currently setting up RAMPS on an Arduino Mega 2560 to control small stepper motors, and I have an Arduino Uno with a components kit for you to use if you don't have one yet. Bring your own laptop if you have one.
