DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED.
Unfortunately materials have not arrived. We're pushing the instructional part of the evening to Tuesday, December 20th. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Micro Monday is for all things microcontroller and electronics related. We get together twice a month, for classroom stype instruction and show and tell, on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month.
Due to the holiday and a special guest, this month we're hosting Micro Monday on the 19th. Please update your calendars!
At this event we're hosting a representative from Parallax who will be showing off some of their products and giving a hands on lab!
We'll be programming the Parallax Propeller MCU to act as an FM radio, using this kit: http://www.parallax.com/tabid/514/ProductID/773/Default.aspx
