Details

Often the best way to understand something complex is to understand something related that is simple. One of the most basic operations a computer does is to count. 1, 2, 3, 4. But that isn't actually how it does it. Since computers store and read information in bytes, it is more like[masked],[masked],[masked],[masked].

Join us as Rob Huston walks us through building a binary counter with discreet components. No code here, just using hardware to iterate a counter. Great for beginners, fun for everyone.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
CARPE is a group of people who love to explore the convergence of hardware and software. From automated chicken coops to robot safe cracking to soldering, we love it all. Join us to tinker, learn, hang out and have a good time.

• What we'll do - Play with hardware, learn about hardware, hang out with cool people who love hardware.

• What to bring - Anything you want related to hardware. Personal projects, questions, tools, etc.

• Important to know - This is NOT just a meetup for people who have years of experience working with hardware. This is a meeting for anyone and everyone who is interested. Do you have zero experience but are curious? Come and learn. Do you have a lifetime of experience? Come and share that with others. Young and old alike are welcome. Pizza and Beer for everyone!
