April 19, 2012 – Hands-on Lab with Ian Lee – “.NET Micro Framework and Gadgeteer”

Join us Thursday (04/19/2012) at 6:00 PM for free food and drinks. The lab begins at 6:30 PM, followed by some great giveaways, such as books, training, software, and this time two Gadgeteer Kits too! Our meetings are held at 22 Century Blvd, Nashville, TN (map).

Topic: “.NET Micro Framework and Gadgeteer”

Our lab master, Ian Lee will speak about the Gadgeteer platforms and then we jump into the fun of programming.  Hands-on lab means this time that you’ll be able to play with Microcontrollers!  This lab wouldn’t be possible without our good friend VACO, who sponsors us with the Gadgets.  We’ll use FEZ Hydra Kits from GHI Electronics, and even better: we’ll give away two of them during the raffle (thanks again VACO).

Lab master: Ian Lee
