It’s that time again for our weekly round up of happenings ’round Denhac. And it seems like there is always something pretty cool going on. In fact, as I write this, several members have descended upon the space and are working frantically to build the newest piece of equipment purchased for use – a fabulous new 3D printer! w00t!
Tuesday, May 21, 8 p.m: Radio Heads – Our bi-monthly meet up for everything SDR (software defined radio). Topics 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.
Tuesday, May 21, 8 p.m: Weekly Open House. RSVP on Meet Up.
Thursday, May 23, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m: Work from Denhac Day – Work remotely? Need a little human interaction? Grab your laptop and join us for Work from denhac days. RSVP on Meet Up.
Saturday, May 25, Noon – 5 p.m: Open House and BBQ. Everyone welcome! Because it’s the Memorial Day holiday weekend, we won’t be holding any classes this weekend. However, because it’s the Memorial Day holiday weekend – the unofficial start to summer and the BBQ season – we’ll still be open to everyone. The grill will be on, the music from denhacradio.org will be pumping, and people will be chilling out, working on projects, and just generally having a good time. There may even be a Magic game running as it seems like the cards are coming out more and more every Saturday.
Sunday, May 26, 11:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m: Kids Coder Dojo. The Kids Coder Dojo at Denhac is a weekly computer programming class designed for elementary through high school-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). RSVP on Meet Up.
Denhac is a non-profit organization that provides a variety of technology, art, DIY, and craft-related classes for all ages, and survives on donations and membership dues. As with (almost) all Denhac classes, attendance is free of charge and membership is not required. Donations are strongly encouraged.
Come check us out! We’d love to meet you!
