    Live Stream was on April 3rd:  Time 5:30 PM CST (10:30 PM GMT)



    The first live stream where community members present and a showcase of project videos from Project14.  MATRIX Labs discusses using the MATRIX Creator in Home Automation Birds, Enrico previews The The Dancing Birds  at the Art Exhibition, Sean Miller takes a stroll down memory lane with his R2D2 - The Force on Wheels  project, and Wesley Gardner's Arduino SD Card Audio Player & LM386 Audio Amplifier board  has a message for Project14 on its second birthday.


    Community Member Feedback:


    "I enjoyed the webinar.  Good content.  It's nice to have everyone discuss what they've created."  - ralphjy

    "Thank you Tariq, it was really nice this event. Not only the hour flew fast but - IMHO - it was incredibly nice and genuine. I have had only one feedback (a 2.00 a.m. when the live finished) by a friend - a hero of the community too, simont.arts who was awake late night to look at the show and give me feedback - and the result from the users was great. I think what all appreciated was just the freshness and originality of the event. The right mix of preparation and improvisation. I think this is another idea that will grow, another Project14 effect. We started with an experiment then become a very participated monthly constant.

    sjmill01 is a Maintenance and Reliability Engineering Team Leader in the petroleum industry. His first 20 years, were spent as a Control Systems Engineer, Chemical Engineer, Six Sigma Black Belt, and Maintenance and Reliability Leader in the Chemical industry. His hobby is bestowing my skill sets in programming, robotics, residential building and repair, and auto mechanics to his son with some occasional fly fishing and guitar jamming.  gam3t3ch interest in electronics blossomed in the year 1990, when he was 10 years old.  After hooking up the VCR himself, a big deal at the time, his Mom came home from work early to find the VCR in many pieces on the floor because he was curious on how it worked. He points the finger to his grandfather’s willingness to show him how things worked and how to fix them encouraged this adventure and passion for all things broken and electronic.  Since then, his love and excitement for electronics is so great, he will often visit garage sales to buy old pong systems and radios just to play with them or see how they work and fix anything broken.
