Upcoming UI ACM presentation:
An Introduction to Microcontroller Programming for the Hobbyist

Our next meeting is coming up this Wednesday, September 16th at 7:00pm. We'll meet up in the hallway on the top floor of JEB to hang out and enjoy some tasty dessert before we move into JEB 328 for the meeting/presentation.

Microcontrollers open up a whole world of project potential—from a blinking LED to autonomous robots, cylon lights, and reader boards. This presentation will discuss microcontroller programming from a down-to-earth, hobbyist angle. We'll cover everything you need to get started with hobby microcontroller projects, show off some projects you can try on your own, and present resources for further exploration. The intent is to provide the least intimidating introduction to this topic so that you can go out and get started with microcontrollers yourself!

Welcome to a new year

The new ACM website design has been unveiled! While still a work in progress, we think the change is a great way to start the new academic year and we hope you agree. If you do spot any rough edges, please let us know so we can get to fixing them.

The first meeting of this semester will be September 2nd at 7:00pm at a to-be-determined location. We will be providing information about the ACM and our plans for this semester. There will be plenty of dessert and all are welcome!
