Product Arriving from Assembler!
Good morning everyone!
I just returned from Europe the day before yesterday, a very long trip during which I had an excellent opportunity to meet one of my backers (Howdy Patrick!) and speak to both his Arduino group in Munich as well as Hardware.co and Make: Berlin. I gave presentations on the basics of I2C and also a talk on the first year of Rheingold Heavy's existence. The talks went very well and I was absolutely infected by the enthusiasm and energy of everyone that came to hear me talk, and extremely grateful for those that shared their projects with me too. So very cool.
I had the good fortune to receive a small shipment of the production Education Shields, and all the production Display Add-ons before I left and this morning received confirmation from Small Batch Assembly that the remaining boards will ship by Tuesday of next week! Here is what the production shield and display look like when fully assembled...
I'll have a video up soon detailing the assembly process that I think even my non-technical backers will find fascinating. Why? Because industrial robots, that's why :)
I'm very close to shipping the boards and stretch goal packs, so I'm going to be sending out the remaining surveys soon to gather the shipping details for those that selected hardware for their reward, so keep an eye out for those.
The content is completed through the first I2C component, the AT30TS750A temperature sensor (although I want to add one more module there about using the alarm and interrupt feature, even though that's not exactly I2C related). Next I'll write the Real Time Clock component modules, SPI theory, and the SPI component modules.
At that point, an entire online course on I2C and SPI theory, complete with tutorials and matching hardware will be available; and it will be available because of the support and encouragement everyone of you has shown me over the past few months.
