Darlington Merging with SLC Transistor

cncDue to “slowness” and issues beyond our control, we are temporarily merging our Darlington Chapter with our SLC Chapter. The current Darlington location will no longer be accessible to members.

This does not mean that Darlington is not viable, (as both the SLC and Orem Chapters are experiencing record growth) and we hope at some point to re-open Darlington as a full stand-alone hackerspace with a full tool-shop. For those interested, keep an eye out here for news of this.

Darlington is having a class!! arduino & soldering

Come learn things at the first ever Darlington public class.  On saturday, the 15th at our midvale location. We will be starting at 7:00 pm. This will be be an intro class for basic soldering and arduino.

  • Ted Goodell will be teaching an intro to arduino class. He will be covering everything you need to know to get started with arduino. Specifically the class will cover arduino programming, shields, some basic projects, helpful books, and helpful websites. Also, we would like to end the class with a brief discussion on micro-controllers for hobbyist use.

 

  • Isaac will cover an intro to soldering. We’ll be soldering led kits designed and built by darlington. So everyone will get a little glowy to take home. The kit will cost $3 so empty your bank account and build something cool.

Other Notes:
There has been some question over the differences between the two spaces. I will do my best here to explain this.
- Darlington is an extension of theTransistor in Provo. Darlington is focused primarily on electronics, computers, software, InfoSec, etc; while theTransistor has more room for public classes, band saws, drill presses, laser cutters, larger work areas, and more.
- While a membership at Darlington DOES give you full access to theTransistor in Provo you will not have the option of getting a desk at the Provo location; you WILL however get your own personal cubicle at Darlington.
- Membership at theTransistor is almost full and does usually come with a personal desk, however it does not guarantee you access to Darlington; as Darlington has limited space.
- Darlington is a quieter workspace (though you can decide to make it loud if the members there would like) while theTransistor tends to have a bit of a ‘buzz’ going on whenever there is a large group there.

Again if you have any questions, would like a tour of Darlington, or would like a membership ASAP please shoot an email over to: contact@thetransistor.com
