Join us as Rob Houston walks us through using an oscilloscope to understand, debug, and learn about what our circuits are actually doing. A key component of embedded development is knowing that your circuits are actually doing what you think. Since you can’t see all those little electrons buzzing around you need a tool that can help you. Multimeters are useful for giving you values, but sometimes it is necessary to be able to see that the signal going through your circuit is actually correct. We will get hands-on as we learn how to use this somewhat-intimidating-at-first-glance tool that is vital for working with electronics.
CARPE is a group of people who love to play around with hardware. From automated chicken coops to robot safe cracking to thermal imaging, we love it all. Join us to tinker, learn, hang out and have a good time.

• What we’ll do – Play with hardware, learn about hardware, hang out with cool people who love hardware.

• What to bring – Anything you want related to hardware. Personal projects, questions, tools, etc.

• Important to know – This is NOT just a meetup for people who have years of experience working with hardware. This is a meeting for anyone and everyone who is interested. Do you have zero experience but are curious? Come and learn. Do you have a lifetime of experience? Come and share that with others. Young and old alike are welcome. Pizza and Beer for everyone (of the appropriate age)!
