Each week we’ll endeavour to publish some details of the interesting things that members of DoES Liverpool have been up to over the past seven days. You can find out a bit more about them in our introductory post.
And remember, if you’re involved with DoES Liverpool at all, let us know what you get up to so we can include it here!
Things of Note
Zac soldering a sound activated switch at DoES Liverpool #MakerNight (every Thursday from 7pm – 9:30pm)
Frequent visitor Benji the #chorkie seems to be getting over his initial shyness – he used to stay close to his human @david_rycroft in the laser room, but here he is happily posing with @matthewcroughan in the main space at DoES Liverpool.
Super pleased to welcome Paul and Ishola to the team here with Shreya at Dynamic Devices! They found us through @GraduateLCR and are working on some rather awesome Embedded Linux work with us and @Balena all at the @DoESLiverpool makerspace!!! #weeknotes pic.twitter.com/dWzKK8fJEf

I really like this #embedded career roadmap (not least because they took on my ideas about soft skills). They are crowd sourcing input on anything missing here! #weeknoteshttps://t.co/TGoYjICLwO pic.twitter.com/QpCIqVrL6E
