I've been getting slack in my Arduino hacking, and would like to have a regular local gathering.

Anyone else here in or near Scottsdale, AZ interested in setting something up?  (Or know of something in Scottsdale?)

Kinda a "dead thread" and I haven't done anything recently; but you might want to check out this thread. I'm just not good at organizing and networking people...



Personally, I want something that is inclusive and centralized for the metro Phoenix area; right now, there's HeatSync Labs, a hackerspace in the Mesa/Tempe region - a little too far east to get to on their meetings for me...
I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.

James Britt

Yeah, I saw that thread, which got me thinking about my own neck of the woods.

HeatSync is even more remote than Mesa/Tempe,  being in Chandler.

I've usually tried to organize groups that are reasonable central or accessible to most folks in the Valley, but it's  a very hard thing to do, and, as with HeatSync, people often just decide to serve their immediate vicinity for their own convenience..  (Which, unfortunately, becomes reinforcing overtime.)

I'm not unyielding on the finding or starting an Arduino hacker group that's not in Scottsdale, though it's my first preference.  If anyone has a good suggestion for a location that isn't way off in the boondocks I'd be interested.


Not in Scottsdale but Im in central PHX. ive been trying to find people locally for ever and am verry interested in setting up meets. Give me an email and we can talk..


James Britt

I just sent you a message with my E-mail address.


I was just Googling for Scottsdale/Phoenix-area hacking groups and found this. I've barely got my Arduino out of the box but am Scottsdale-based and would be interested if there were group meetings.


James Britt

Whereabouts are you? I'm over by Shea &  Via Linda


That's not too far from me at all (it's the closest major intersection on Shea to me). I live right off Mountain View near the Mountain View/Via Linda intersection.


I'm in North Scottsdale / Carefree - 64th and Dynamite.  I could be interested.

James Britt


I am in Central Phoenix, I might be inclined to check yall out if you get something going.  I have to warn you in advance though, I am a nooob!!! :)

James Britt

Noobs are also welcome!  I've only a small amount of experience myself.

We need to figure out some initial logistics.


I'm in Gilbert Arizona and can get to Scottsdale easily. count me in :)

James Britt

Rather than clutter this board with group planning, I set up a Google Group where we can discuss time, place, whatever for getting together.


Or contact me directly if you have any questions or  problems: james (at) neurogami.com


I'm in Gilbert... I really just want a darn arduino workshop! We don't have any that I know of...
