April’s event schedule will be out tomorrow but, for now, let’s take a look at what’s coming up in the next few days!
Tuesday, April 2, 8 p.m: Weekly Open House. RSVP on Meet Up.
Tuesday, April 2, 8 p.m, in the classroom: Radio Heads. This week, we’ve got a special presentation by TVoid who has agreed to come by and give an SDR 101 class for the group. RSVP on Meet Up.
Thursday, April 4, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m: Work from Denhac Day. RSVP on Meet Up.
Saturday, April 6, Noon – 5 p.m: Open House and BBQ. This past Saturday was so nice to have the bay door open and to fire up the grill that we’ll be doing it again this Saturday. Mmm…burgers and dogs and brats, oh my!
Saturday, April 6, 2 p.m. – 4 p.m, in the classroom: Asterisk with Acr0nym. What is Asterisk? Asterisk is a free and open source framework for building communications applications. It is “like a box of Legos for people who want to create communications applications. It includes all the building blocks needed to create a PBX, an IVR system, a conference bridge and virtually any other communications app you can imagine.”
In this 2-hour course, Acr0nym will give us an introductory look at what it is, what it does, and how to get started. He may even regale you with the story of how he took down the entire call center on his second day of the job. (I’ll probably be in trouble for mentioning that.) RSVP on Meet Up.
Sunday, April 7, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m: Denhac Dojo: Coding Club for Kids. Re-scheduled from March 23. The result of our organizational meeting and inspired by the code.org project, we’ll be having a hands on workshop for all student age kids during which we’ll be demonstrating the MaKey MaKey and then teaching kids how to code a program in Scratch to apply to the MaKey MaKey. All students 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Please bring a laptop if you have one with Scratch already downloaded. You can download Scratch for free here. RSVP on Meet Up.
Unless otherwise noted, all classes and events are free, open to the public, and kid friendly. Come check us out! We’d love to meet you!
