New three day course in electronics and arduino, starting on May 9th.
Course runs on Saturday from 9.30am to 2.30pm. You’ll get to grips with the basics of electronics, programming and even a little bit of robotics.
Learn how build devices that interact and react to the world around them.
Some of the topics we’ll be covering.
Course Cost: €90
Material Cost: €50

This week’s Quick Fire Lessons will take place at 091 Labs at the regular time of 6:30pm on Tuesday.
Keep an eye on our social media for updates.
What’s it all about?
Quick-Fire Lessons are fast and loose, with an emphasis on learning by doing.
We aim to provide a supportive, open and safe environment for you to try out new things.
Quick-Fire Lessons are a weekly event, with lots of introductions to various awesome things. If you want to participate in the problems/exercises please bring your own laptop/device. It’s also fine to drop in for a look and listen.
These lessons will be facilitated by Micheál and Darren and possibly a mix of other people along the way through 2015. We’re constantly improving the learning experience from week to week. We’d like to keep this up so please be generous with feedback!
Our preliminary list for coding content (later will see more subjects) includes the lastest in the following languages/platforms:
HTML5 & CSS3
Angular JS *
Android App Development *
Basic Machine Learning ***
*Asterix’s mean that we cannot possibly cover everything in one class due to topics being very broad/deep.
Smartphone-ography, €30, September 20 from 10am-4pm:
The first workshop by Mark Grealish will dive into quick-draw photography: The rules of how to compose a photographic scene, mindfulness in taking a picture, awareness of your surroundings, and how to quickly draw, snap, and put away. We will also cover workflows for getting the best finish out of an image on mobile devices and archiving images.
Soldering, €50, September 27 from 10am-6pm:
All of the software services that you enjoy in the real world-the applications on your smartphone, your tablet and favourite websites-begin at the bare metal circuit board. Come along and learn from Alanna Kelly how circuits work, how to solder your own kit, and repair electronics.
Our C-with-Linux-for-hardware classes, hosted by Alanna Kelly, will begin on this Tuesday, November 19, and run for a total of three weeks with the goal of building a simple electronic dice that has been coded in C. You’ll learning soldering, electronics, C, and Linux at an introductory level.
Access to a laptop is mandatory; and an installation of a Linux shell, vim text editor, and GCC compiler are all very strongly recommended. If you run Windows or do not know how to install GCC, a remote shell accounts on an 091 Labs Ubuntu server will be available for the duration of the classes.
The cost of the four classes is €40, along with €10 for electronic components.
Tuesday November 19, from 7pm to 10pm.
Once a week thereafter, for three subsequent weeks.
Have access to vim, GCC, and Linux.
Shell accounts to a remote Ubuntu server will be provided if you don’t have any of the above.
You will learn C, Linux, and simple electronics (soldering, wiring).
The overall project will be to build and take home an electronic six-sided dice.
You are required to have:
A laptop with network access.
Either a Linux installation with GCC, or an installed terminal and SSH. OS X has this in Terminal.app, and for Windows you can install either Cygwin or PuTTY.
Back in August we had our first homebrewing workshop of 2013 at 091 Labs, and it was a great success! A member of the local brewing community guided nine intrepid attendees through the ins and outs of their first kit brew, from basic theory, through fermentation to bottling and conditioning. Their reward: twenty bottles of beer they had made themselves and the basic skills needed to move on to their next brewing project with confidence. We really couldn’t have done it without the skills and patience of Geoff, homebrewer extraordinaire, and the participation of Home Brew West, Ireland’s largest supplier of homebrewing equipment.
Starting this Saturday the 12th of October at 12pm we’ll be kicking off our second round of workshops geared towards first-time brewers who want to be shown the ropes by an experienced home brewer and learn to avoid the common pitfalls that can ruin a first brew. The cost of this workshop is €35pp and attendees will get to bring home 20 bottles/20 pints/10 litres of their brew at the end of the course. The course will be run with 2 people per brew kit (basically sharing the workload and end product brew).
You can register your interest for the event by emailing your details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that there will be a minimum of ten attendees so it is important to get in touch with us to confirm your place.
Week 1: (First meeting) – you will sit down with Geoff who will explain the differences between the different kinds of beers, explain the process of brewing (fermentation, bottling etc) and a trip to local craft beer pub The Salthouse for examples of beer styles (sample platters are included in the cost of the workshop). Attendees will pick what type of type of brew you want to make for the classes.
Week 2: The brewing proper begins.
Week 3, 4 or maybe 5: Teaching of proper bottling sterilisation and bottling of brew until it is completed.
The brewing classes will take place in the homebrewing corner of our hardware area at 091 Labs and tutorials/discussions will be held in the main room, usually for a few hours from noon on the Saturday. The brew buckets and other equipment will be supplied and stored in the brewing area.
This is a strictly over-18s event, ID will be required if necessary.
