Defcon is over and we all have to return to our normal lives… Here are some things to help get you through the work week!
Monday, August 5: —–
Tuesday, August 6, 8 p.m.: Weekly Open House. You can guarantee members will be hanging around so come see what we’re about. With this crowd you never know what might happen! RSVP on Meet Up.
Tuesday, August 6, 8 p.m.: Radio Heads. “Radio Heads” is a group created to explore different aspects of software defined radio. Examples 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.
Wednesday, August 7, 6 p.m.: LPFM Admin Meeting via Google Hangout. This is for those of you interested in what it takes to get an LPFM license – specifically FCC rules and regulations. To get in on the action send a request to contact (at) denhac (dot) org. Be sure to include your Gmail address in the request.
Wednesday, August 7, 7 p.m.: LPFM Engineering Team Meeting. This is the weekly meeting for the team responsible for the technical logistics of applying for and eventually maintaining the LPFM community radio station. Interested? RSVP on Meet Up.
Thursday, August 8, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.: Work From Denhac Day. With everything returning to normal following the conclusion of Defcon, come to Work From Denhac day to help ease back into the grind of regular life. Hang out with some awesome people while you get stuff done! RSVP on Meet Up.
Thursday, August 8, 7:30 p.m. – 9 p.m.: LPFM Content Team Meeting. This is the weekly meeting for the team that makes content and programming decisions and also creates content for the LPFM community radio station. RSVP on Meet Up.
Friday, August 9, 8 p.m.: GAME NIGHT! So, the two dominating games at Game Night are currently Poker and Cards Against Humanity. Both are awesome of course but feel free to bring another game for everyone to try. We’re open to (almost) anything. The tom foolery usually runs into the wee hours of the morning! RSVP on Meet Up.
Saturday, August 10, 12 p.m. to ???: Open House Part Deux. This is your second weekly opportunity to come check out the space. Whether you’re just looking for a reason to get out of the house or need some help with a project, this is your chance. Members are always hanging around on Saturdays and you can even bring some grub to cook on the grill. We look forward to meeting you!
Sunday, August 11, 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!!
