Build a BBB in Providence today for a chance at a copy of Making Things Talk


Paul Badger, creator of the Arduino-compatible Bare Bones Board, is speaking at tonight’s Providence Geek Dinner. Come early (4:30pm), build a Bare Bones Board (kits will be available for $15, and we’ll have soldering stations on hand and knowledgeable people around to help you if you’re new to this), and get a chance to win a copy of Making Things Talk (winner drawn at random from among the people who build a kit). We’ll be shutting the soldering irons off at 5:30pm sharp, so give yourself plenty of time to come by and make one. More information on the Providence Geek Dinner and to RSVP – Link
