Possibly three tables at USASEF from Gary Mauler. Told him we would be talking about this tonight, Three tables for beginner electronics, lock picking, ham radio, maybe CTF (if we can abbreviate it)

Tristin: We could do something flashy but less interactive with Wireshark

Gary is looking to get individuals involved as well, so let your friends know if they are interested in showing off. Gary interested in interactive art pieces Would Alberto be interested in showing something off?

Reach out to Robert at Dupont underground and Nehemia at NonstopArt to see if they are interested in possibly sharing space

We should do a conference call with Nehemia at NonstopArt because that might make it more likely that we will actually meet


DeepLearning Class: Figure out how to attach Venmo directly to Paypal to take money from visitors

Electronics Class with Loui: Yay! All About Circuits, he's working through it every week

                                                             1,43          Top

Karen: We need to keep track of who is coming in this space Who came and visited and when. Have a sense that in the warmer months we just have drop ins that are interested in seeing the space Maybe say, come on down maybe just $5 or $10 to use the equipment

Who came and visited and when. Have a sense that in the warmer months we just have drop ins that are interested in seeing the space Maybe say, come on down maybe just $5 or $10 to use the equipment Suggestion from Brian Madonna: Maybe use a laptop as a sign in sheet

Bobby: Basic monthly newsletter

Tristin: Most other DCTech meetups are on the DCTech Slack channel. Might be helpful to know about this

Karen: What is the heavy equipment in the basement and does it work? Do a basement inventory

Potential plan once the closet is emptied to make it into a ham radio booth So let's not worry about the door just yet, since there might be a replacement of the door coming


Kevin's Report: DC Infrastructure Academy looked like the most promising gropu at the DC DOES event. Man at that table was very interested after Ken talked to him about using microcontrollers with cars to tinker. We gave him our information DC Public Schools (public schools librarians) think we are a professional operation still. Karen: We'll have to say it many times, but still be kind and welcoming if/when they do come visit



Ken's Report: Talking about same meetings as Kevin, at DC DOES talked about possibly partnering with organization that installs solar panels to provide microcontroller support (talking specifically about DC Infrastructure Academy). If it proves valuable to people who are being placed, have training providers integrate it into their training. We could train the trainers

Ken will follow up with the organizer of the librarian event, told them about some of the projects we had done. HacDC helped there



Karen: Is there any new business? Chris: I'd like to become a member Talking about his work on the laser cutter, work left on the firing of the laser cutter smoothie board.
