Ask an Engineer Chat - 032010 VIDEO UPLOADED!!

Great show tonight - it went by really fast! If you missed the show - remember, it's always more fun to watch it live! And you do have questions don't you??? Great! We'll see you next week!

Tonight, Saturday 3/20/2010 – 10pm ET – “Ask an Engineer” – our weekly LIVE video chat! What is “Ask an engineer”? From the electronics enthusiast to the professional community – “Ask an Engineer” has a little bit of everything for everyone. If you’re a beginner, or an seasoned engineer – stop in and see what we’re up to! We have demos of projects and products we’re working on, we answer you engineering and electronics questions and we have a trivia question + give away each week. To see previous chat event videos, please visit the forums.

This week we’ll go through some more of chapters one of the books we stock “Make: Electronics by Charles Platt” We checked out this book before putting it in the shop, its geared towards ultimate-beginners and teaches electronics starting from basic core of analog to some digital to microcontrollers. You’ll learn tools, prototyping soldering techniques, transistors, 555’s, etc. while completing useful projects. A nice and tidy intro! This book is a good accompaniment to learning microcontrollers/Arduino in that it fills the necessary electronics theory and background.

Topics include:

* Welcome George! – He says hello
* Gizmodo iPad contest – sponsored by Epilog & Adafruit – enter and win!
* Finding Ada sale March 24th – Bringing women in technology to the fore
* The first Arduino ever made! (and one of the first 100!)
* Open source hardware workshop – Ladyada and Adabot talk about the OSH workshop at EYEBEAM.
* Arduino team visits Adafruit – First ever Arduino meet up in NYC (photos).

Heard about the AaE chat a while back but never got around to watching. After downloading a few of the last sessions I'm booking some time Sat. @ 7pm PT to participate live!

Thanks for posting these archived sessions, AaE is extremely useful!
