This is Hardware Mixxer-Up through Meetup. Hardware zealots that like to design, build and show off their hardware projects. It can be any type of hardware including IoT devices, Raspberry Pi, Arduinos, Computer builds, Keyboards, 3D printers, robotics and anything. Recently some hardware zealots have showed off their e-bike and electronic gimbal at local meetup. We will meet the second Thursday night of each month at 6:00 PM at the Winston Salem Mixxer.
Each month there will be a key project for group to participate in.
In this Hardware Mixxer-Up we will find and take an old laptop and rebuild them using a Linux Operating System. Ubuntu, Fedora, openSUSE, Kali Linux or any distro that may be interesting at the time. Even windows trial version is an option.
Come on down and explore what's inside and how it works. We have a laptop to demonstrate but feel free to bring YOUR laptop!
If you have hardware project that you would like to share or collaborate on, please come by and discuss.
