Due to numerous space, personal, and common projects, FCW will start having a project/build meeting each Tuesday at 7PM. In addition, Business meetings will be alternate Saturdays, with the other Saturdays being project/build meetings. Saturday meetings will continue to be at 3PM.
The electronics shop is now in operation. We have a 350Mhz scope, several meters, function generator, power supply and several trainers. Over the next few weeks we’ll be adding additional parts, tools and equipment. We will be using arduino, PIC, and propeller microcontrollers; FPGAs; and discrete digital for a while.
An introduction to electronics is planned for a limited group in two weeks, then that workshop, soldering and arduinos will be scheduled in the near future.
Michelle is the the coordinator of the electronics area. She brings 40 years experience in analog, digital and embedded systems to FCW.
We are holding our very first class at the space on 1/28/2012 BSU (Basic Safety and Usage).
Our open house went great! We could not have asked for a better time. I want to thank the Hackerspace Charlotte Group for coming down and also the soon to be open Asheville group. Sadly to say with all the people and fun during the open house I forgot to take more pictures. So my picture count of the event is down to two picture.

The only picture I thought about taking while people was talking
We start to move the larger machinery in. The machinery is on loan from Rich.
We are coming close to being finished with Phased 1 of the space.
With the end of Phase 1, we are planning to have an open house on Dec 17. Come see our space and meet our people.
