- YLab’s Python Constricted class, hosted by the Markham Public Library, where a dozen people were introducted to the Python programming language, and helped along by ylab volunteers.
- Our second monthly Robotycs meeting, hosted once again by Logics Academy, covered an intro to Arduino and Raspberry Pi. We’re looking for a serious competition project!
- We have a small offshoot of beginners from Robotycs who are eager to learn and will start some hands-on weekly training by hacking remote control cars. Experienced volunteers will be showing up to help them with soldering irons, oscilloscopes and Arduino gear.
- YLab’s Robot Ross and Jedi Jay displayed their wares that the Mini Maker Faire.
- A few ylab regulars’ faces were in the audience for their evening with Cory Doctorow.
- Their Nov 13 TEDx put out a call for speakers. We introduced a couple of ylab friends from The David Dunlap Observatory (DDO) and Site 3 Maker Space who have been selected. Our proposal for a Site 3 flaming demo in the parking lot… well, that went down in flames. Tickets are going fast!
