Circuit Hacking Fun Night featuring Mitch Altman

The most excellent Mitch Altman, co-founder Noisebridge & TV-B-Gone inventor, is in town to speak at Flourish Open Source Conference at UIC this weekend.

Mitch Altman presents ‘Hacking Cool Things with Microcontrollers’ at Maker Faire Detroit 2010

Mitch loves hackers, so he’s coming by our space for a special Thursday edition of the our bi-weekly Circuit Hacking Wednesday: Circuit Hacking Fun Night!

Come get your electrons & solder on with Mitch and other friendly hackers on Thursday, April 7th, 7pm-9pm.

Inspired by Noisebridge’s Circuit Hacking Monday, any experience level is welcome. Beginners can learn to solder and make cool stuff in a couple hours. DIY electronics kits from Cornfield Electronics (Mitch’s company) and Adafruit Industries will be available for cash sale.

And remember: Soldering is Easy!

    What materials or equipment should we bring to this, if anything?

    Howdy – we have soldering irons & tools to use, and Mitch will have DIY kits for cash sale. If you do have a soldering iron and tools, then I’d suggest you bring them along for you to use just in case we run short when Mitch’s groupies show up ;)

    Cheers,
    Drew
