The "Makers" Group Goes Live!

LinuxChixxors have formed a new group called "Makers" for chixxors who are exploring DIY electronic and other projects. We'll talk Arduino and other microcontroller boards, RaspberryPi and other single board computers, sensors, robots, drones, 3D printing, and anything else people are interested in. Whatever level you are at, whether it be a total beginner, or have been doing this for years, you're welcome to join in.
