    DORKBOTPDX November 2016 Workshop: ESP 8266 for Beginners

    CTRL-H Hackerspace

    ESP8266 for Beginners The ESP8266 allows you to create small microcontroller based projects that can be controlled via web interfaces. So you can control your project from your phone with a nice UI! Meaning you can get your project running faster because you don't have to create a full hardware UI for your project. We'll get the Arduino IDE up and running and try a few different programming options. We'll be programming the NodeMcu. This is a beginner class.

    Instructor: Thomas Hudson Sunday November 13th, Noon to 3pm at Ctrl-H, 7608 N. Interstate, Portland, OR 97217 Cost: $25 goes to Ctrl-H and cost of hardware RSVP required! Limited to 15 people! RSVP to [email protected]

    DORKBOTPDX October 2015 Workshop: Create a Teensy MIDI Device

    This is the first of three audio workshops coming up, exciting!

    The Build Your Own Teensy MIDI Encoder Workshop will show you how to use a Teensy 3.1 to create a MIDI encoder that sends MIDI OUT messages over the Teensy's micro-B USB plug.

    During the workshop, you will build a serial-to-parallel, parallel-to-serial switch matrix using a Teensy 3.1, a breadboard, IN4148 diodes, and reed switches (if you wish to validate the switch matrix). Darin will demonstrate how to write the switch matrix scan code and how to encode the simulated keypress signals into MIDI OUT messages using the Arduino/Teensy Keypad and MIDI libraries. Extending the code to accommodate MIDI IN, velocity sensitivity and other MIDI messages, as well as using shift registers (74HC595 and 74HC165), will be discussed.

    Recommended hardware and software for the workshop:

    Teensy 3.1 or 3.2 with header pins Micro-B USB cable Breadboard with jumpers 1N4148 diodes Reed switches and magnets (optional) Laptop loaded with: Arduino/Teensyduino IDE or Microsoft Visual Studio using Visual Micro MIDI-Ox, (PureData can also be used to dump MIDI messages) We will have some extra supplies available.

    Instructor: Darin Molnar Sunday, October 25, 1-5pm at Ctrl-H (http://pdxhackerspace.org/) 7608 N. Interstate, Portland, OR 97217 Free (Donate to Ctrl-H if possible!) All ages! http://dorkbotpdx.org/midi_2015/

    Portland Meshnet Meetup

    This is an open meetup and anyone with an interest in Portland Meshnet is welcome! Bring your hardware for testing and experimentation. If you have a chance, set up cjdns and iperf on your systems ahead of time. (this is optional and should not deter new meshnet members from showing up!)

    Discussions about: meshbox project, software defined radios, embedded devices, cjdns, cjdns peering, iperf tests
