hi everyone
my friend just opened up a coffee shop in Koreatown LA
& they've got great drip coffee
& they're trying to make their space the hub for creatives to come
learn, discuss, discover and connect

i think you guys should hold monthly gatherings there!
i'm happy to help organize & host (:

and they also have an adjacent art gallery
so maybe you can work on projects to gether, showcase
so people can experience your artwork

please contact me!

Machine Project is having a set of classes coming up in LA, but as I'm in central OC (Orange County), that's too much of a hike for me.

http://machineproject.com/archive/classwork/2011/08/02/introduction-to-microcontrollers-with-arduino-2/

I would be interested in just about anything in OC though.

I'm in OC, too. Did you find anything, and if not, would you like to start something? I hear Fullerton has a great hackerspace, but I haven't checked it out yet. A small group to geek out with would be great.

Hi all,
I'm in Eagle Rock (between Pasadena and Glendale), available weekends and most evenings after work.  Still working on the basics and am very interested in sharing info, working on projects in a group setting. I've got a light seeking, servo moving project and a photo resistor triggering an led and sound playback project going right now. 
Please send me a messege if you are interested.

I have been seriously looking into renting a building or warehouse around North Hollywood, Sherman Oaks (where I live), or possibly Burbank. If anybody is interested in helping start up a hacker space near there or already has a space, please contact me. I would love to build individual workbenches for people and eventually invest in some 3D Printers and some large machinery (Laser Cutter, Drill Press, Milling and Routing Machines. Any one who is interested in helping out please message me or email me at Christopher@geekstreetsolutions.com.

Hey everyone I'm actually thinking about opening an store in Los Angeles for electronics hobbyists and would like to get your thoughts on it.

Here's what I have planned so far:

Location: San Fernando Valley (North Hollywood or somewhere nearby) and online.

Products: Arduinos (original and compatible as well as shields/accessories), Raspberry Pis, general electrical components (resistors, capacitors, wires, etc, etc, etc the list can go on forever lol), sensors, tools), ICs (Attiny, 555s, etc), and pretty much everything else you need to build something with electricity running through it.

Extras: I plan to have a few work stations with ready to go computers and soldering equipment where hackers can start building knowing they have access to any item they might need as well as friendly help. I have even thought about sponsoring and hosting meetup.com group meet ups.


Since a store like this will require a hefty investment, I'm asking around to see if Arduino enthusiasts in the Los Angeles area would prefer shopping at a local store rather than ordering online and having to pay for shipping/wait a few days. I have visited a few RadioShacks and although they carry Arduinos, they only offer about 1-5 shields and sensors (depending on the location). I also plan on having very competitive prices (cheaper than RadioShack, Fry's Electronics and even some online stores).

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Mitomart, I shop at http://www.allelectronics.com/, located at 14928 Oxnard St. Van Nuys, CA 91411. I think making the shop more towards teaching would be more appealing, as most local stores sell products already. Your shop would be one of the few that have workshops and tools available.

FYI, There is a hacker space in Culver City. I haven't yet visited them, but they seem like a pretty active group.
