International Arduino Day 29 March 2014 at Tektos Calais

Come participate in the International Arduino Day 29 March 2014 at Tektos Calais.

On the 29th of March 2014, we will hold an International Arduino Day event at the Tektos Accelerator in Calais. Participation is free: Click to Register We will co-organize the event with the ULCO university EIL engineering school. The goal is to build a larger community of experienced hardware hackers in Cote d’Opale. We will focus on arduino – but it is OK to talk about Rasberry PI or your other favorite open source hardware.

We want to keep things very fluid and open. We have a basic agenda with plenty of time to demonstrate things you have built, learn new techniques and meet makers.

The current Agenda is as follows:
