I am happy to announce two upcoming workshops at Stanford University in the San Francisco Bay Area where we help you get going with Beagle! We make it easy for you, even if you have no experience with embedded linux.
The first workshop is aimed more toward helping you learn how to use embedded linux to build a new musical instrument or a sound art installation (https://ccrma.stanford.edu/workshops/new-music-controllers July 7/16-7/20), and the second one is aimed more toward building an audio effects processor (https://ccrma.stanford.edu/workshops/stompbox-design 7/23-7/27). While the workshops aim to make it possible even for artists with minimal prior linux experience to use the Beagle, we have many workshop participants who are quite advanced and simply want to do something fun with it. Last year both of our workshops were fully booked, so enroll soon to reserve your space!
By the way, here are some selected prior projects, but please don't be intimidated by them--we are happy to help you accomplish whatever you want during the workshop:
