Microclub Switzerland Featured
The Microclub is probably the oldest micro-computer club in Switzerland. It was formed following the first lectures given by Prof. J.-D. Nicoud on microprocessors back in 1976. Among its 120 members, the Microclub counts many IT professionals, electronic engineers, programmers, and people with considerable technical experience, but it also includes fans from all professional backgrounds with a passion for technology.
The Microclub has evolved according to the technology and the interests of its members in IoT, Arduino, drones, ecology, etc. Several members of the Microclub regularly use Arduino boards, from simple projects using the classic Arduino Uno board, to more advanced, taking advantage of what the Arduino Yun has to offer. The club is a great place to learn and share ideas, discover and discuss new technical developments, such as IoT, and start new and exciting projects with colleagues. The Microclub hosts periodic conferences to allow members to share their experiences gained from implementing their projects.
Several times a year the club organizes lectures on practical applications, such as monitoring solar heating, interpreting the wireless protocol of a weather station, illuminating multicolored LEDs, making educational robots, programming simulated traffic light circuit card, and much more!
Currently, most of the club's activities are represented by:
- Bi-monthly conferences on various topics usually held in the CIS building at the well-known University EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Federale Lausanne)
- “Mi-Chronique“ newsletter, published twice a year (print and electronic version)
- Endless projects that are made and share throughout the year
The Swiss Microclub is seeking new members who share a passion for technology! If you are interested in more information or in becoming a member, attend one of their conferences, or contact them via email@example.com
