Things I’m taking to the Arduino miniconf

I figured I’d go to the Arduino miniconf and help out with the assembly tutorial. That got me thinking about what I should take that’s relatively small, but likely to be helpful. So far I’ve got:

  • My butane soldering iron and solder (I’m not packing butane though, I’ll have to find that up there)
  • De-soldering wick and a solder sucker
  • Side cutters
  • Tweasers
  • A multimeter
  • A USBtinyISP
  • A couple of duemilanove boards
  • Some spare Atmega 328s
  • One of Doug’s ethernet boards
  • A spare development central heating controller (my current project)
  • My RS485 development stuff (so I can keep working on that)

What else should I bring?


I’m registered for LCA 2011! I wasn’t expecting to be able to come due to a clash with a work event, but then they moved that event. So, I’m pretty happy about that. Have you registered yet? Early bird closes soon…
