We will be hosting a SMT Hand soldering class at the Hive on Wednesday March 2nd at 7pm. Goal for the class is to cover simple, easy to do (with a steady hand) techniques and materials used for soldering common SMT packages WITH
LEADS. NO BGA. NO QFN. (i.e. nothing with “blind” pads underneath the device that need soldered – can’t do that well without reflow IMHO)
resistors, capacitors down to 0402 (I’m not good enough to do 0201 by hand consistently)
connectors (mini USB, ethernet, etc.)
This covers 90% of the MCUs, transitors/FETs and passive components commonly used by enthusiasts. We will most likely be building AMP kits that you will be able to take home after the class. Seats are extremely limited for this class but if it sells out we plan on having this class again.
Date: 3/2/2011 Time: 7pm-9pm
Learn how to program your own custom applications for Android devices. This class will go through the quick and easy method using Google’s AppInventor then go into details on how to use Eclipse to design more complicated applications. This class will mainly focus on creating GUIs, Activities, Intents and callbacks as well as AlertBuilder. We will also discuss how to run your application in an emulator and directly on your device.
You will want to have Eclipse installed with the android tools ahead of time. See http://developer.android.com/sdk/installing.html (Get the Java or RDP version of Eclipse) If you are having problems getting this installed then Craig will be there at 6 to help but class will start promptly at 7pm.
December 16th, 7pm at Hive13 Hackerspace
Class cost is $20 (Members $10) Member codes will go out in email.
Limited Seating. We will accept money at the door if seats are still available.
