The high school students prepped for their big LED build by learning to solder. One of them made a snail from scrap parts.

Newcomer Bob, aka Arduino Master, showed us his smart house and his wife, Dee, showed us her wearable brooch.

We completed the PWM exercise, and welcomed 2 new students–one of them had his text to speech module saying “Welcome to #mauimakers” after a quick tutorial.

Learning to host a website

May 20, 2014 in Blog, guitar, Word Press by admin

So trying to set up a the website I envision.  A friend encourages me and tells me, “It’s easy.” Just download a Word Press template and go…

Yeah, right. I spent the first day getting Word Press and the website so confused that I couldn’t actually find its domain name, and I totally killed Word Press.

Now, if I can only figure out how to get my photo to display.

It might help if I weren’t spending most of my time trying to get the Arduino Workshop off the ground.

Off topic:  Check out an awesome classical guitarist at http://devinulibarri.com.
