Electronics Workshop with Mitch Altman and Jimmie P Rodgers

TOG in association with the Irish Robotics Club will be hosting an Electronics Workshop by Mitch Altman and Jimmie P Rodgers in the Science Galley on the 23rd of March.  Mitch Altman is a San Francisco-based hacker and inventor, best known for inventing TV-B-Gone remote controls, a keychain that turns off TVs in public places. Also Mitch is a co-founder of Noisebridge hackerspace. Mitch travels all over the world sharing his knowledge and love of microcontrollers and soldering. Some of you might not know this, but on a trip to 25c3 some of the founding members of TOG learned to solder for the first time with Mitch’s help. It was this trip that gave the spark to start TOG. If you look closely at the image on the right you might recognise some of them.
