January 9th, 2018 - MUG Meeting

Regular MUG Meeting

We meet at 6:30pm on the second Tuesday of each month at the Farmington Community Library.

Topics Include:

Welcome to Circuit Python

CircuitPython is a programming language designed to simplify experimentation and education on low-cost microcontrollers. It's super simple to get started with and great for learning. It doesn't matter if you're a seasoned programmer or you've never written a line of code in your life; get a board, find a USB cable, choose a text editor, and you're ready to begin. That's all it takes! "Welcome to CircuitPython" will be your introduction to this amazing language and some of the great things you can do with it. We'll move from using an onboard LED to do blinky - the CircuitPython "Hello, world!", to demonstrating how to interact with sensors, and finally a few surprises at the end!

Kattni Rembor is an independent contractor with Adafruit Industries. She works as an embedded software developer, technical writer, and community builder, and has been a champion of Open Source for many years. Kattni also serves as a MUG board member.

We'll also have several give-aways during the meeting, including several Python books by our media sponsors No Starch Press, and a special give-away from Adafruit.

You'll need to be present to win!

Plus we'll have our regular features: Jobs Looking for People, People Looking for Jobs, and much more! We'll also be meeting for dinner at Buddy's Pizza in Novi after the meeting.
