The event was extremely well organized and well attended. I believe that the Maker Movement is still in its "Wild West" days, with plenty of exploration and growing to do, but I think community-backed places like the library are where Makers will blossom in the long run. Libraries, like Makers, are all about learning and sharing! We got a good write-up in the local paper including some quotes from me.
At any rate, I got the code and the layout up to snuff before midnight. It performed great at the hands of a wide range of kids, and there were no major casualties inflicted by tiny fingers. Next up for Dawson Station is the Eugene Cascade Train Show in April, where we are planning our 4th appearance.
If you want to hear more about the event in general, or the Arduino / Raspberry Pi demo's, head on over to MakersBox.blogspot.com where I am delving deeper in to all things electronic!
(Thanks to my friend Mike for the photos. He brought his awesome missile-firing Arduino-powered tank the first day and then returned the second to get some photos. I was too busy to get many myself!)
