I'm part of a collective called NYC Resistor - as it says on the top of our site "We learn, share, and make things". We've been meeting over the past few months to get up and running, and things are really starting to take shape now!
We've gotten an awesome space in Brooklyn, and as of April 5th, we're going to be starting classes. If you've ever wanted to get started with electronics, this is the time. We'll be beginning with 101 and 102 classes in soldering and electronics, and I'll be honest that I'll actually be taking a spot in some of these classes myself to get my basic skills ready for more advanced stuff in the months to come. Bre's also going to be running a class on "video basics for people who make things", and Justin's going to be teaching a class in freaking gameboy programming. How cool is that?
We've created NYC Resistor to help build the NYC hardware hacking community, so we're running these classes extremely cheaply - $25 per class hour. Because we're keeping them cheap, we really need to fill the classes to keep NYC Resistor running. Please, spread this around, tell you friends, and sign up to help us grow the NYC tech community.
