I’m interested in the Arduino gathering. I’d like to get started on a
project but this is a new area for me and I could use some advice from more experienced players.
I work in IT and have some C# programming experience. So it’s not a completely, left field endeavor. Still, let’s say I’m a total noob.
I’m hoping that I can do a simple project here at home from the bits of time I can find nights and weekends. But maybe I need more equipment than an Arduino board and a monitor and it would make sense to invest in a membership at MakeICT and to put the time in there?
I basically want to build a small beacon device so I don’t think its too complicated but I’m probably wrong. Haha.
Should I do the legwork and determine the board and other stuff I’d need before getting in the car and heading to the Arduino gathering?
Thanks for reading!
