How about July 18th 11:00 to 2:00?
24th is the best for me. 7/31 is definitely out. 7/17 is ok.
Sounds great. What is our next step? We need a write up for an announcement/invitation and a plan to disseminate, e.g, http://www.techhui.com/events.
To reiterate your suggestion for this get-together:
Tech Hui Big Island invites all those interested in high tech to a BBQ where we can introduce ourselves to each other and discuss what we'd like to do as a hui.
nice meeting you at the 7/25 first TechHui meeting.
I have been thinking about your comment of surprise of using Windows to monitor the algae project and I think I know where you are coming from. yes, it would be unwise to rely on Windows to do real-time control of the plant in 24/7, day-to-day operation. the Opto 22 platform utilizes embedded processors to perform the real-time logic and control. the Windows machines are simply for HMI and data logging. the Windows machines do not even need to be running for Opto 22 to remain in control and perform its logic.
I hope to talk to you more about this and other technical topics at the next meeting.
Hey guys, I'm trying to get more involved on TechHui. Thought I'd add a quick entry. I'm a student (for a couple more months) and looking to build a tech community in East Hawaii. We're throwing events at a place called Hawaii TechWorks, right across from Rainbow Falls in Hilo. I've big on Big Island for almost 8 years, and would love to be able to make a good living as a software engineer here.
