Abstract

Hi Folks - we are going to try something new this month. In lieu of a speaker we are going to hold an open discussion on the topic of "Why So Many Languages?" This will be a "free form" discussion, some general questions to kick things off could be:
1. Is there really a need for so many languages?
2. Does the availability of so many languages help or hurt the development process?
3. Does the availability of so many languages reduce or increase the cost of a project?
4. With so many languages to work with can you ever really learn one in depth?

Speaker Bio

All of you!

Abstract

TinkerForge provides a variety of sensors and devices: an air quality sensor, analog joystick, linear potentiometer, speaker, LCD screen, infrared distance sensor, and many more. We’ve used some of these devices to create an infrared piano. Two IR sensors detect where you place your hand over two sets of keys. The speaker beeps at a frequency matching the note for that key. The LCD prints the distance detected by each IR sensor. And the linear potentiometer controls volume. The software that runs the piano uses TinkerForge’s C/C++ API bindings. These are easy to retrieve from ConanCenter using the Conan C/C++ package manager. This session examines the various sensors, devices, and codes used to create the piano. You’ll go behind the scenes of the piano’s development, and its iterations, and see how you can start creating similar projects.

Hi Folks,

Looks like there is a technical issue with Microsoft Teams where the link for the browser is not able to open the actual meeting. Robin and I worked on this for a bit and are not able to find a quick solution. For the moment we are going to cancel the meeting and work on a solution for next month.

Sorry folks!! We'll get this sorted out!!

Lloyd
