Once again LVL1 is hosting a free Thanksgiving Dinner at our space for anyone who wishes to attend. It will be at our space on the 26th and will start around 2 with a plan for dinner around 3 or 4 and general activities and food the entire time (plenty of snacking and desserts before and after).
Once again the LVL1 Hackerspace is participating in the amazing Louisville Day of Giving non-profit event. Last year we used this to help fund our move to our new space and this year we want to continue upgrading the infrastructure in this space and making ourselves at home. There are electrical and insulation upgrades we’d like to do to help reduce our costs during the winter and to add more capability to our tools. We would also like to be able to support some low-cost/no-cost workshops using our tools and hardware like the Arduino and Raspberry Pi, or building things like custom picture frames.
The 2015 election was successfully concluded at the January 20th Tuesday Night Meeting with quorum being met and the votes tabulated. This year's Officers and Board Members are:
Danielle Blank, President
Ben Hibben, Vice President
Daniel Johnsen, Treasurer
Nathan Armentrout, Secretary
Sean McPherson, Director at Large
Patrick Joyce, Director at Large
Jose [REDACTED], Director of Legal Evil
Thank you to everyone who ran and voted; once again we had an amazing group of folks to choose from who care about the community. You are all appreciated.
Edit: Just for fun...
Please join us this Thursday in the "Barrel Room" of The Pointe at 7pm for a presentation by Ben Nuttall of the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
Last years visit to the LVL1 hackerspace was a huge success and resulted in an attendance of nearly 100 people and brought out many of the local community's Raspberry Pi based projects for display and discussion. This year we aim to top those numbers by partnering with FirstBuild and Velocity Indiana and to that end we've rented an event hall at The Pointe, located at 1205 E. Washington Street, 40206, in the same building as the LVL1 hackerspace, which can accommodate 300 people.
This is an all-ages event for anyone who is interested in the Raspberry Pi platform. Show us your Pi projects or just come learn about what the Pi is and how it can be used to interact with the world around you and educate kids and adults alike.
The Raspberry Pi is a small, cheap computer designed to be used in schools to encourage kids to play and learn with computers by removing the worry of the expense; at $35 it's not a big deal if they end up breaking it. This low price point, combined with some pretty powerful hardware for the cost, has made it a darling of the Maker Movement. The latest iterations are increasingly targeted to the Maker Movement with increased access to digital and analog inputs and outputs.
