  • I have used Scilab as a replacement for Matlab in my hobby work. It is a Matlab clone. It also has something similar to Simulink. Not sure if it would be applicable for the RedBot stuff. But, surely anyone looking to do similar number crunching/analysis on a hobbysit budget, look at Scilab…totally free and open source!

  • It is great you guys do these classes! As well as the SP national tour. However, have you thought about doing an online approach - distance learning? There would of course be a cost associated with it. But then, people from all over the country could partake in the learning much easier. I would attend a class or two for the price you offer, however I live in MN. I’d easily pay $50-$100 to have access to the live recording and course content - lecture/presentations/how to’s/demonstrations. Heck I would imagine a lot of people would pay the $50 registration if they recieved access to the recorded class session. I know from experience it can be difficult to troubleshoot problems people are having from afar, but I think this could be overcome easily enough. A kickstarter campaign could be done to generate the necessary start up funds. Maybe there is some obvious things I am missing that severly inhibit something like this from happening…? If so, let me know…Otherwise, what does everyone else think?

  • I have read that getting that reading means you have a bad sensor. More than a few people have come across this. What are you using to program?

No public wish lists :(
