This Week at Denhac (Apr 15-21)

Whoops! Sorry for the delay, folks. I should have had this out yesterday.

Tuesday, April 16, 8 p.m:  Weekly Open HouseRSVP on Meet Up

Tuesday, April 16, 8 p.m, in the classroom: Radio Heads – “Radio Heads” is a group created to explore different aspects of software defined radio. Topics to be addressed include both the reception and transmission of RF signals, the processing of data captured from the ether, cell phone networks, and ham radio. This is a group, not a class. There is no instructor. Just a handful of similarly minded people trying to learn something at roughly the same time. If you have a pet project you think might apply to this group feel free to propose it. RSVP on Meet Up.

Thursday, April 18, 9 a.m. – 4 p.mWork from Denhac DayRSVP on Meet Up.

Saturday, April 20, 12:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m, in the classroomIntro to Video Production with Toast – One of our fabulous members, Andy (aka Toast), has graciously offered to give a crash course on the basics of producing quality video. Whether you want to learn how to capture your cat in the next viral LOL video or how to edit your master’s thesis presentation down into a TED talk, Toast is your guy. He’s also the guy who can teach you how to master the art of aggressive inline skating…but that’s another class for when it’s warmer…and for when I’m way braver. RSVP on Meet Up.

Saturday, April 20, 5:30 – 7 p.m: All Member Meeting – Our regularly scheduled monthly meeting (postponed from last week) to give our members a chance to mix, mingle, snack, and talk business.

Sunday, April 21, 10:30 a.m. – 2 p.mKids Coder Dojo at Denhac – The Kids Coder Dojo at Denhac is a computer programming class designed for elementary- through highschool-aged kids.  Students will begin by using a free and open source visual programming language called Scratch (http://scratch.mit.edu/, available on Windows, MacOSX and Linux), and will be able to move on to more advanced languages as they progress at their own pace.

Attendees under the age of 13 are required to be accompanied by a designated guardian (though guardians are encouraged to attend for all ages).  Attendees should bring a laptop or netbook for each student they bring if they can (and you are encouraged to bring extras if possible for those without access to a computer).

Denhac is a non-profit organization that provides a variety of technology and craft-related classes, and survives on donations and membership dues.  As with (almost) all Denhac classes, attendance is free of charge, and membership is not required, however donations are strongly encouraged.

Doors will open at 10:30 a.m., and instruction will begin promptly at 11.  Lunch will be provided at noon (pizza), and we will be wrapping up at 2. 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!
