Feel free to bring food and drink to share (no alcohol though, it's a school after all...)
dorkbotSF After Party @ BaGG FREE 11:30ish (if you RSVP'd in time but try saying you are a dork, that might work...)
Mike Estee - Home Cookin' with SMTSurface mount technology is the recent past, growing present, and inevitable future of electronic art, but for most DIY'ers it is still an intimidating undertaking. Where to begin? I will be giving a live demonstration of the toaster oven technique, discussing the basic tools needed to get started, and giving a general overview of how to design an SMT project. It's a lot easier and faster than you think! I hope it inspires others to take the plunge.
Michael Estee has been a professional software engineer since he arrived
in sunny California 9 years ago. After becoming disillusioned with
software as a recreational pastime he took it upon himself to learn the
hardware engineering and manufacturing techniques necessary to realize his
ideas, and to spread this knowledge with other like minded electronic
artists. Past projects include an optical encoder based MIDI controller,
portable battery powered self sequencing lights for a 22' ferris wheel,
Pong implemented with robotic club lighting, drum machine triggered
strobes, and various others.
