I'd like to rejoin... what's the situation?

Had my first vaccine a month ago and am happy to wear a mask...

I could come to the open night but need an excuse to get out of the house sooner! :)

Do you still have a regular night where most people attend?

I'd also like to understand the situation. I'm planning on showing up at 50 Broad Street on the 2nd of Feb to see if the open nights are still running

Hi Federico,

Did you mean 2nd March?

I plan on going down again soon if I can, however with Covid we’ve had a bit of a hiatus.

Hope to get restarted again soon though.

Maybe you can tell us a bit about what you’re in to or interesting in.

Hi jpswade,

Yes sorry - I meant 2nd of March I'll make my way to the open evening. Are you park of the organising committee? I just went to double-check the date on the website and would like to let someone know that the about page (https://potterieshackspace.org.uk/about) mentions that it's the first Tuesday of the month whereas the events page & calendar & AGM notes mention Wednesday.

I've got a longer background in technical computer/IT/software work but most recently I've completed a Sustainability & Green Technology MSc at Keele University so I'm in that in-between area of careers and interests. I'm still a computer scientist at heart but I want to apply my learnings to make the world a better place in the future. I've also started watching a whole bunch of Arduino videos on Youtube and would really love to start experimenting with IoT applications such as decreasing home energy use. I'll probably order an Arduino starter kit when I get paid next month to experiment with creating some IoT sensors. I want to come to the hackspace to see if I can benefit from the Arduino kit (if any) to learn more about specific sensors so I don't waste time & money buying the wrong pieces from Ali Express. I imagine I'll become a member if the space is open more frequently than once a month and the equipment available is useful since I don't really have a workspace at home. I'm also looking forward to meeting more likeminded geeks/makers in Stoke since I only moved here in Nov 2020 during the pandemic to pursue my MSc and haven't met many people yet!

Have you been involved at the hackspace as well? What have you been up to / what are your interests?

Kind regards,

James Wade

Hey Federico,

Sorry for the late reply. I won’t be able to make it tonight and I’m not sure we have a quorum to open unfortunately, unless anyone else replies to this that is.

We moved from Tuesday to Wednesday during the AGM. Changes can be suggested via GitHub to the website, but I’ll see if I can make the change.

Would be great to meet up, quite a few of us are into Arduino projects too, I’ve been tinkering with the ESP8266 again recently.

Apologies again, hopefully I can make it again soon.
