One of the key skills needed when working with hardware is the ability create good conductive connections between components, which usually means skillfully melting metal for that purpose. Are you good at soldering? Bad at soldering? Never soldered but dream every night about doing so? Well then this is the group for you. We will be having our quarterly soldering workshop to improve soldering skills, make some simple gadgets and hand out. If you have a soldering iron and tools, please bring them. If you have anything you would like to solder or un-solder, please bring those.
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!
