The September GO-Tech meeting (Ann Arbor, MI) is Tuesday, September 9, 8 pm, at Great Oak Cohousing (directions below). The topic is Printed Circuit Boards. We’ll have presentations on going from a napkin sketch to ready-to-solder circuit board, and hopefully even see one made.

Most meetings are less formal, where anyone is welcome to talk for 5 minutes about a new project or resource. Periodically we have themed meetings, such as build-your-own Arduino night (pictured with some wood we laser engraved at a meeting) and a meeting on CNC machines (with lots of demos).

GO Tech (formerly NotBAGO) is a meeting for Ann Arbor area readers of Make Magazine, Circuit Cellar, Home Shop Machinist, Kevin Kelly’s Cool Tools, slashdot, etc. That is, people who are interested in and make things using technology, whether that’s a metal cutting lathe or a Python script. A kind of generalized mixture of CerealBar, DorkBot, Oxford Geek night, and Portland Machinist Guild. We have machinists, electrical engineers, software folks, industrial control types, and so on. We share projects, information about tools and ideas, and connect with like-minded people.

Meetings are generally the second Tuesday of the month at 8 pm.

For details and to join the email list, go to the GO-Tech Yahoo page (under our old name, NotBAGO) at: http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/notbago.

    Are these meetings usually really… uh… “techy”? I’d like to get started in the MAKE universe and i’m kind of hoping this is step one.

  2. Collin Cunningham says:

    I haven’t been to a GO-Tech meeting myself, I’m guessing they’re techy but at the same time friendly to newcomers.
    You could try contacting Dale, the meeting host through the Yahoo group above.

    Anything particular you’re interested in getting started with?
