Monthly Monday Microcontroller Madness

Beginning in September of 2011, Hive76 will start hosting monthly workshops based around the general field of microcontrollers, or MCUs. The workshops will be held in a loose format allowing the greatest freedom in topics covered. A typical workshop will include a detailed introduction to basic MCU concepts, project demonstrations, and collaborative work time.
