Title: Atlanta
Post by: BigBen1861 on Feb 01, 2011, 02:28 am
I'm new to the Arduino platform and am enjoying the process of coming up the learning curve.  It'd be great to meet-up with others in the ATL who are working on the Arduino platform.

Give a shout if you're interested in getting together to talk techie sometime!

Holy crap, a group that's located in my general area! (Even if it consists of one guy :/)

I live about 40 miles north of Atl, not sure if it would be feasible to meet up very often at all, maybe once a month though

Of course... reading this now.


Here is a recommendation.  (that accommodates Sugar Hill, I think)

There is a Starbucks on 141 near 400 and The Avenues that has a lot of SPACE... as a where we could meet.  Like maybe NEXT Saturday.

I'm not sure if I'd like to meet up next week, kind of worn out on traveling places (yes, even an hour 30 minutes away) spending 9 hours in a car over the weekend does that to you, plus I seem to be getting sick... *cough up phlegm*

Arduino beginner in Alpharetta here.  Interested in any meetups around here.  Cumming Starbucks sounds good.

Let me know, and I'll be there.

Anyone here interested in building me an Arduino project for pay?  It is the SMS send project.

Pls advise.

Thanks,

Retired (I'm here, my job is in India... downsized and off-shore) and live in Lawrenceville.
I have worked with microprocessors, 6502/6800/8080, long, long time ago.  Worked with BASIC Stamp back in late 1990's.  Have been working with PICAXE for a couple of years and now with Arduino a couple of months.

I'm in Alpharetta too. 

Here's a link to my blog http://bbqandbanjos.blogspot.com/2012/02/banjos-arduino-thermocouple-controlled.html (http://bbqandbanjos.blogspot.com/2012/02/banjos-arduino-thermocouple-controlled.html), with an Arduino project on it I did a while back.

Drop me an email via my blog.

I would enjoy getting together with some other tech people. 

I'm going to propose meeting at Jim & Nick's BBQ at 141 and 400 (at the Forums) on Wed, June 6 at 7:00 PM.

Didn't hear from anyone, so canceling meeting at Nick & Jim's.

Sorry Javaben... I gave up on checking here...

...But I KNOW that we are not the only guys with Arduino's. Someone is buying the OSEPP units that fry's sells on Windward PKY/9.

Maybe we need to try to set up something  informal again...

Valalvax, are you (or anyone else) still hanging around here?
I live and work in Cartersville. Would be interested in a meet up to share stories and project ideas. I'm just getting into Arduino and Raspberry Pi. Have both but haven't let any magic smoke out yet. Will probably be playing with some home automation things to get started.
