PT Tinker - a hands-on community meetup

PT Tinker - a hands-on community meetup

The Port Townsend Web Developers meetup has its first official spin-off, and it's going to be a good one.

PT Tinker:  Arduino 

I'm happy to announce PT Tinker, a new meetup led by two intrepid technologists we all know and love, Tim Finer and David Ehnebuske. The two will be hosting a regular get-together at the Colab every third Thursday at 5:30pm that focuses on Arduino projects. You can stop in to learn how to get started with Arduinos, hone your skills, and share your knowledge with others. They have some collaborative community-oriented projects picked out to kick things off, but you can feel free to bring in personal projects as well.

Thanks to our erstwhile sponsors Cro Software Solutions and the Colab. Beverages provided by Fort George Brewery.

Once again we will be at The CoLab and we will be doing announcements and show-and-tell before the presentation starts. If you have any questions, feel free to post in the comments.
