When might be a good time to look around?
« on: January 11, 2018, 01:48:41 PM »

Hello, I'm interested in seeing if FamiLAB might be a fit for me and some of the projects I have on the radar for this year, but I may be travelling for the next Open House date on your calendar.  Is there a chance I could get a look some evening before then? 

I'm a EE by schooling but have been working in Telcom/IT consulting for a while.  My personal projects are 50 shades of all-over-the-place, but mostly interested in darkroom and alt process photography, camera building, woodworking/woodturning, and some IoT raspberry pi/arduino projects.  I do a bit of metal working too but am a lousy welder, and dabble in hydroponics. 

The FamiLAB community approach seems cool, just hard to know till you can get a feel for the place.

Thanks!

Tim Telkamp

Tonight? Swing by...
I'll be there anyway. The good news is that you are forced to hang out for a month or more before you apply for membership. So you'll know for sure if it's a good fit by then.


I'd recommend joining our slack account as it's much more active than these forums are.


If you don't know what slack is, www.slack.com is the web address. Familab is our group. It's free and there's even an App for your phone...


My slack name is Overkill.

Chuck- You won't be able to get the the familab slack from the main slack site. This link is better :)
https://familab.org/slack/


Pop into #general-meta when you get there and say hi.


Welcome, t2sqred! I don't know how you got your text that tiny, but I'm impressed :p

Odd... I always go to Slack then Familab... maybe it works because I already have an id setup.
