Hello? Hello? Is this thing on?
« on: April 08, 2015, 04:51:40 PM »
High. my name is Tim, and I'm very interested in learning more about FamiLAB, and possibly becoming a member. I have been looking for a local group like this to replace a hobby I have recently dropped. I have a very analytical and creative mind. I am currently learning Arduino and would like to get together with others locally to help me with questions I may have. I have a strong background in tech support, have done some welding mostly TIG, some but not much wood working, a strong mechanical back ground and good grip on electronics. I am just getting started in programming with the Arduino, but at this point it's like learning a foreign language.

I have the membership forms to fill out and will try to drop them by this Fri the 10th after work, around 5:30 ish.

looking forward to getting to know all of you.

Tim,

You might want to make sure someone will be there before you come all the way out - Friday's not a meeting or build-out night (and we're all volunteer, so the space isn't staffed), so you're not guaranteed to find someone there (especially a board member, since most of us are already up at the space T/Th/Sa for now)... but you might! Otherwise, it's not a big deal to hang on to your paperwork until the next meeting or until one of us is there to take it.

We do have an Intro to Arduino class we offer, but classes are somewhat slowed down right now because of build-out. I'm sure someone can help you, though - we tend to gather at the space on Tuesday nights, though there are people there fairly often and spread out throughout the week.

Welcome! We look forward to getting to know you.

Would it be cool to come by tomorrow after 5:00 during the build out? I would like to meet some of you, see whats going on, check out the facility, and who knows, maybe lend a hand for a bit.

Feel free! We'll be split between the two spaces, but I'm sure we can put you to work. :)
