Anything else you want to see on the agenda? Let Tina know.


Social: Monday March 12th

Early PI day, with pie at Baker's Square (the one by Apache Mall). 7 pm so you can have a healthy dinner at home first, for health and cost reasons (of course, if you wanted to go to Baker's Square and want to use this for an excuse, you're welcome to blame me).


Technical Meeting: March 8th, 2018

Cancelled due to no speaker. The PCIG elections will happen at the April meeting, beware!  ;)

Volunteers or request for an April+ speaker, or the March+ social, would be appreciated. Please email Tina.


Technical Meeting: February 8th, 2018

Dennis DeLorme, "Arduino at Sea".

--

The original plan was to update the "Solar UV Intensity" project I did three years ago on a Pacific island cruise. I presented some of the Arduino to Android interface changes last July.

But what else does an Arduino addict do when faced with an 80 day Asia/Pacific cruise? Put a bunch of extra Arduinos and I/O modules in a box and put it in his carry-on "just in case".

In addition to the UV measurement results I will talk about 2 other projects...

1) A scrolling Halloween message on an LCD display - they did some Halloween themed things on Oct 31. I used the user defined character feature to build a pumpkin image as part of the message.

2) A temperature data logger that recorded the temperatures in 6 min intervals for several hours to document problems with the A/C in our cabin. I uploaded the data from the Arduino to our laptop via Bluetooth and used LibraOffice to to graph the data.

I will talk about the hardware and software for these projects and do a couple of demos.

Discuss job hunting, from local options, to telecommute jobs, current interviewing strategies, networking, build your own job, build your own company. No specific speaker, we'll go around the room and let people talk about what's worked for them and what hasn't.

Special thanks to our mini-speakers who turned out despite the bad weather, here are the presentations given by Matt Bruzek and Mike Fallenstein.
