This month's agenda:

1-------------1

"Hello, Arduino: Meet the tiny computer built for makers and
crafters," by Sharon Cichelli

Take the first step in raising your robot army, and make software that
interacts with the real world. The Arduino is a microcontroller
designed to be welcoming to those new to programming and new to
electronics. Sharon will show us what it is, what you can build with
it, and how to get started.

Sharon Cichelli is a software developer, open-source contributor,
Arduino hacker, pinball enthusiast, and author of GirlWritesCode.com.

2-------------2

"Replicating Reality: Print Adventures in the 3rd Dimension" by Matt Mancuso

Tea, Earl Grey, hot! Matt will share the theory and technical basics
behind 3-D printing -- and show off some objects he printed on his
homemade Replicator.

Matt Mancuso is a geneticist by day, and Member-at-Large/Ombudsman of
ATX Hackerspace by night.

3-------------3

"How to Make a Robot Without Knowing Electronics" by Luke Keyes

Have you ever wanted to make a robot, but felt the task of learning
electronics was too daunting? Luke will explain how he made a robot
using a netbook and a thrift-store Roomba and how you can too.

Luke Keyes has spent the past 7+ years as a video game programmer by
day (specializing in gameplay systems and AI), and a hobby robotics
enthusiast by night.

PLUS! PLUS! PLUS!
