We had a great time at our last electronics meeting finishing up and testing out our Sumobots! Here's a short video of two in action!
This is very important in this day and age. We have accounts everywhere, keep the passwords safe and wherever possible, enable two-step / multi-factor authentication.
Here's a brief overview:
This Saturday, we are hosting an event in celebration of International Nodebot day.
Held at our Hacker Garage on Saturday July 15, 2017.
Our programming is getting FANCIER: This meeting will start our Collaborative Sketch project! Draw with one or more friends! In this project we’ll be combining HTML, p5.js, Firebase, and jQuery to create a collaborative sketchpad. We’ll use p5.js to manipulate the drawing space, Firebase to keep track of our drawing in terms of points that we’ve marked in our drawing, and jQuery to easily manipulate HTML elements.
Our Nodebot Day celebration is coming up. We are the only place in California currently scheduled to host an event. (and, of course, this is pretty awesomely nerdy stuff!)
Please let us know if you'd like to join us on 7/29.
Our meeting on June 10th is just a couple of days away!
We'll be continuing the exercises in Module #4 from PodPi.com, talk about Module #5 and the new robotics happenings.

M4 - Binary with Binny
Last meeting, we created Dodge, a video game where you move your dinosaur out of the way of falling rocks.
In this meeting, we will be creating a game similar to Flappy Bird, Pitfall and Defender, or for the modern among us, Geometry Dash. This one is called Platformer.
Come join us on May 20 at 11a at our Club Garage!
You can see a playable demo version here:

It's Sumobot fighting time!!
Originally posted for Facebook, this shows the simplebot using the Captain Arguino Arduino board from
www.podpi.com being controlled via AJFisher's UDP transparent bridge to Johnny-five over Adafruit Industries' ESP8266 "Huzzah" development board.
This design was adapted from Andrew Fisher's article in
I control the bot using W, A, S, D.
The Commodore 64 and I spent hours and hours together. I've enjoyed it's 8-bit songs very much.
This article talks a bit about the awesome art of 8 bit sound in games.
