    I've been thinking about coming and checking it out as well; just haven't had the chance yet

    1/11 is a (hopefully) special (hopefully) big joint meetup with both MontCode and Buxmont Openhacks. Thus the different library.

    ok great, sounds fun

    @Lilyheart
    That reminds me…

    @/all For those not on meetup’s MontCode email list, this message went out yesterday: Hello fellow MontCoders! 2016 has been an interesting year for the group! The group officially kicked off May 17th. Since then, we have has 31 weekly online chats, 13 meetups, and 2 lectures! We've posted nearly 14,000 messages in the chat room!

    I am looking for ways to make 2017 even better than 2016. But, to do this I need to know what you want! I’ve created a survey to gather this information. If you could please just take a few minutes of your time it would be greatly appreciated. None of the fields are required and you can skip any fields you wish. However! If you complete every field (but the last one, you'll see it) your name will be entered into a hat. On the January 11th meetup, I will pull for a prize basket! I am still gathering more prizes but at this time we have stickers, an Arduino pro mini, and a gift card!

    @lantech19446 Jonathan, To avoid mismatches like you were running into, try religiously using the parens everywhere ! So "if () { <statements>} else {<statements>} at all times.

    @bulski7
    i filled out the survey
    looking forward to meeting people

    @dcpking i have no idea what you're talking about i haven't figured out the issue yet and as far as i can see all my if paramatere are in () are you seeing something I'm not?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    How is everyone's holiday? I'm making an arduino kit for the survey prize which is fun because I really have no idea how thing work :laughing: my roommate will (hopefully) fix anything I get wrong xD
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    @dcpking what do you think? A little kit with an LED that can be programmed to blink to get 'em excited to program with hardware? [for the survey prize bucket]
    Mike
    @dcpking
    Sounds neat, @Lilyheart ! Can you include a microphone, so it blinks more often as the ambient noise increases ? (Sort of a "calm down!!" machine :) )
    @lantech19446 If you're still here, send me your email and I'll show you how I might have laid out your code ...
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    If they wanna go out and buy one, more power to ‘em xD
    Mike
    @dcpking
    A mic? I'll spot you the cost of one from RadioShack if you like
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    I’m not sure what all you’d need to hook it into the stuff. It’s this board. Going to see if C will solder some pins on. right now i have my tester mini plugged into a breadboard with a resister and an LED xD
    powered off the ftdi board that is used to program it cuz i’m lazy
    Mike
    @dcpking
    I've never seen c solder anything. Do you mean c++ ? :)
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    c = my roommate xD
    Mike
    @dcpking
    I guessed you were invoking some sort of a library :)
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    xD does radio shack do small programming boards like microcenter?
    adafruit has this nice one that would work but i don’t see anything like it at the shack https://www.adafruit.com/products/1063
    but there is a microcenter giftcard in the box so whomever gets can get one
    Mike
    @dcpking
    That one at AdaFruit does look nice. The gift card will let them do it ... hang it out there as enticement! (sorry - got carried away reading about I2C communications chips!

    @dcpking
    Hey! I didn't know - it seems like it's already started over in England!
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    @dcpking sorry keep falling asleep there's only one part i had a choice in. And it worked until i added function choice
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Dunno if this link will work. What I put together for the box and tested by writing a quick blink program. Not the Arduino that will be given away tho. That's my tester for when I ever get some to making those sensors. https://goo.gl/photos/KKxxFnEjcEjxTWyT9

    ah ok, I've known a couple mike perry's lol one married this girl Megan I knew when i was younger we called him brother mike the other is from Oreland but seeing as most of us are in montgomery county and both of them had friends who were programmers in the early days of the interwebs it was a high possibility
