Portenta Facebook Group

Hello all Portenta users and fans,

I feel like the Portenta lacks documentation (it is early stage) and I understand that it has tons of potential so I decided to make a Facebook group so that we can solve each others problems and support each others projects. Here is the link: Arduino Portenta.

Hoping to see you all there,
Daniel

I joined

This is a great idea just joined the group, thank you. I agree there is much to do to develop a good documentation for the portenta

Hi Daniel! Great effort, thanks for that! I'm working with the firmware and the content team on improving the APIs, writing tutorials and assessing the overall experience with Portenta. I'm happy to join the group and I'd love to hear your feedback. See you on Facebook.

Hello all Portenta users and fans ... facebook group ...

Here is the link: Arduino Portenta.

This group is really interesting, a lot of cutting edge stuff happening in the chats, we are sorting things out before people post on this forum. I am not much of a facebook fan, but this group is very useful. My latest situation of the pushed in header pins ( instead of soldering them ) causing my ground pin to work erratically. It was very useful to get such quick feedback from other users getting different results.

It's impossible to get a reliable electrical connection by doing that.

Move this to twitter, and I'll join.

Just got to agree on a hashtag. I have already posted as @rocksetta to

#Portenta
#PortentaH7

Or perhaps make it more complex so only people from this forum follow it

#arduinoPortentaH7
#arduinoProPortentaH7

Any opinions?

#Portenta seems prone to pollution, since this is a Latin word. On the other hand, I just checked it out and there isn't very much.

Another thing to consider is that "Portenta" is a family of Arduino products. Sure, that family currently only consists of a single product, but the fact it's advertised as a family indicates to me the intent to eventually add more beyond just the carrier. So if you want to make it about the entire Portenta family, then you'll likely regret adding "H7" to the hashtag at some point in the future. On the other hand, if you want to make it exclusively about the H7, then a hashtag that only specifies "Portenta" may end up with a lot of tweets about other members of the family in the future.

pert,

So, the H7 still isn't recognized under the new IDE - you asked to let you know: #295

Regards,
John

jerteach,

I'll vote for:

#arduinoProPortentaH7

Since it's new (I think) and will keep it more localized here possibly.

Regards,
John

I apologize for being so slow to respond. I have now replied in that issue thread on GitHub.

pert,

Just tried with the Nano IoT and it does the same thing.

I used to work with a bunch of guys that would say "works for you and not for me" - I guess that's the case.

Due to what was added to #295 I thought I had to wait for 0.7.0 - guess I'm glad I asked now.

So, suggestions? I'm definitely using this:

Can

Currently Non Public Facebook Portenta H7 Group

be made viewable to the public?

Arduino's Facebook page certainly is.

Thanks,
John W.

I will make the group viewable although I think it's already public. As for twitter, my hashtag ideas are #PortentaGroup or #PortentaCommunity or for precision same thing with Arduino in front.

dandan10,

OK - thanks for that.

From pert's suggestions, we had started this: #arduinoProPortentaH7 - so, that's on twitter already.

I still can't view the link.

Arduino Facebook Page - I can see just fine.

This should be visible to those that do not have a twitter account:
Arduino Portenta 'Wonders' H7 Viewable Hastag

Arduino Public Group That Can Be Viewed Just Fine

Thanks,
John W.

John. It is weird, the facebook group is public, I think possibly only for facebook users. Daniel has shown that there are some sites which are fully public for anyone on the internet but that doesn’t seem to be easy to set.

As far as the twitter hashtag request I tweeted Arduino but no reply so far.

Here is the “public” tweet

Could forum twitter members reply to the tweet.

Jeremy,

Like I show in the post above ^^^^ there's an example of a public Arduino forum - not sure what the issue is but whatever the issue is - it should be fixed so the rest of us at least can see what's going on.

As I show above ^^^^ too, the twitter hashtag can be followed externally - so, still waiting to see that happen for the portenta group.

Regards,
John

Still can't see it:

Still Non-Public Facebook Group

Sorry John, I have minimal power in that area, as I am not the group owner, but if anyone can find a link on how to do it, I did search about generating a fully public facebook group URL and it is not an easy thing to find info about. The group is public.

On a positive note Arduino did DM me on twitter about the preferable social media hashtag. They suggested #PortentaH7 as it already has some traction. (Probably mostly by me ::slight_smile: ). I was just pleased to get a direct message from Arduino.
