At TOG, we love hacking, and we have a lot of projects lying around, so we want to try to finish some of them. That’s why we are having a one-day community Hackathon and the theme is Finish a Project! Don’t worry if you have a huge project that might take longer to finish, just finish a part of it. The event is free and open to everyone to attend, if you don’t have a project you can help someone else.
We had a great Open Social on Saturday with a lot of pizza from our famous pizza oven, tours, projects and even some board games! Keep an eye out for the next one in June!
Tonight(Monday) we have Electronics Night. Bring a project and/or your laptop. You could work on a kit or just bring a board or something you want to work on, or learn about!
Next Week we have 4 great events!
Monday we have Coding! Bring your laptop and work on a coding project you have been putting off. Contribute to an open source project or ask for help and we’ll point you to the best online resources for learning to code!
If coding isn’t your thing we also have Lock Picking! Learn about Physical Security with this fun manual skill!
Next Wednesday is Craft Night! Sewing, Knitting or any other craft you want to work on, bring a project and get creative!
On Wednesday we also have our monthly Wikipedia Editing night with Wikimedia Ireland! There’s not only free knowledge at this event, there’s also free pizza!
It may be snowing outside, and the Big Day Out was cancelled, but TOG has been featuring some of the technology and projects we work with over on our Twitter account. We have complied some of the resources here as well so it is easier to reference. Remember to ask us questions or share what you are up to today using the hashtag #BigDayIn
Coding and Computers
Head of Education at the Raspberry Pi Foundation, Carrie Anne Philbin, put together this great series called Crash Course Computer Science. It explains a lot of useful theory about how computers work and the videos are really easy to understand.
We found this really cool basic Introduction to Electronics series.
This is video is an introduction to the Arduino board, really useful for sensors.
This video introduces the Oscilloscope.
