Hello. I am wondering if anyone in eastern canada
is organizing a workshop...?
I have yet to try one of these boards and I'm interested, especially in working with interfacing them to puredata/flash.

I would be willing to try to get a workshop at my
school [concordia university in montreal] if we can
get some funding for the boards.

mail me if you are in the area and interested.
thanks.

David Cuartielles

Ian,

could you just send an email to us making a proposal? It is not easy to fly to Canada, but we are willing to do it ;-)

Well the good news is that I have a real arduino board to play with, the
bad news is that I am not in Montreal anymore and haven't any firm plans to
come back! sorry!

I am interested in running arduino workshops in western canada however...
for the summer in saskatoon, for the fall in BC....
email me... interested parties...

Hej,

we are happy to announce that during 2006-07 we are going to be ready to travel the world bringing the Arduino message as far as needed. David will be taking one year sabatical just for workshopping and writing his PhD thesis, while Dave will be done with his Master thesis and ready to fight. On the other hand, K3's laboratory in Sweden has a team of 5 people with black suitcases willing to go places and spread the seed.

Let us know with some months in advance and let's plan things properly.

That's great news

A friend of mine just started a Dorkbot chapter here in Montreal (http://www.dorkbot.org/dorkbotmtl/) and I'm sure he would be interested in organizing an Arduino workshop with you.  I'll let him know about this and hopefully we'll have one soon.

Let me know what I can do to help out.

sorry for waking up an old tread like this one. But hey there s a Dorkbot soon, I ll be there with my arduino 2bit "telephone" machine thingy, it d be cool if there was other arduino freaks there as well. !

While I live in, comparatively, nearby Vermont I would be interested in getting together with MOntreal Arduinos ...

On the 27th of October there is an indoor hamfest (ham radio/electronics fleamarket) in Longueuil. I plan to be  there to sell the stuff I handle in my webstore http://www.wulfden.org/Arduino/freeduino.shtml. If there were enough interest in getting together I would consider renting a second ten foot table space so we could have room to play. I plan to have a full range of the things I sell including my new line of Arduino related kits and material. I will have chips with bootloaders, BBBs, breadboards, LCD displays and serial backpacks, etc. I plan to bring my burner rig so you can bring your own chips to burn bootloaders if you want.

It will cost $5 to get in, that is beyond my control. On the other hand there will also be a lot of bargains (and junk) to be had. the details are:

Saturday, October 27
Hamfest de Rive-sud de Montréal - Longueuil, Québec
Location: Place Desaulniers, 1023, Blvd Taschereau, Longueuil, QC
Vendors 06h00 - General Admission 09h00 - 13h00 Talk-in: VE2RSM 145.390 (-)

It took a year and a half since the first post on this thread but... i'll be running an intro to electronics + Arduino workshop at SAT (Societé des Arts Technologiques) in Montreal on November 2nd and 3rd.
Details are on the SAT website http:// http://transform.sat.qc.ca/fr/formations_details.html#EA . The description is only in French but the class will be run mostly in English.
And hopefully, we can do more like these in the future.

Just a quick reminder ... the hamfest ... at Longueuil is this coming Saturday. It's open fom 0900 to 1300, I will be here at least an hour early to set my stuff up. I will have my range of Arduino compatib;le kits based upon Paul Badger's BBB abd RBBA,  serial programming adapters, FTDI USB-TTL serial cables, breadboards, power supplies, LCD displays, and serial LCD boards, and a lot of other stuff. I also will have my Mac laptop and my bootloader burner and a stash of ATmega168-20PU chips. I offer the use of  the setup to burn bootloaders  on your own chips and will sell you a chip, if you need one, at a very modest markup.

I will also have with me for handling and play,  two LilyPad Arduinos and one of Lady Ada's Breaduino boards, as well as an not too old NG board and a Diecemila with one of Lady Ada's new shield boards.

Cheers ... BBR
