|Programming||Help/Teach/Learn||brice||intermediate/advanced||Particularly interested in learning about dynamic, interactive simulations in functional langages. (clojurescript+processing=dynamic simulation in your browser?) Can give introduction to programming on processing/arduino. Can contribute to code projects at any level of complexity.|
|Programming||Help / Teach||Martin_de_S||Intermediate||I'm a professional coder- I can help out with HTML/CSS/JS web coding, scripting languages, C++, C for Arduino, some Linux SH etc.|
|Arduino (software and electronics)||Help / Teach||Martin_de_S||Intermediate||I've spent a fair while playing with the Arduino and interfacing with other bits and pieces. If you want specific help with a project or are wondering what to do after blinking an LED I'll try to help out|
|Cool software||Help / Teach||Rich Wareham||Can teach to any level||I can help you with coding in almost any language. I'm very interested in designing cool bits of software to do cool things.|
|Signal Processing (more the old school variety)||Help / Teach / (and certainly learn)||Henry Gomersall||Advanced||I'm a full time signal processing engineer from an academic background. More the old school stuff (transforms, sparsity and the like) but I'm keen to improve my stats-fu.|
|Programming||Help / Teach||Henry Gomersall||Intermediate||Python and C (and getting them to work together!). A few years full time experience, but not quite a guru yet. (also Matlab, but I have strong feelings about that).|
|Programming||Help / Teach||Wojciech Meyer||Any level||I can do C, C++ equally good, but mostly OCaml these days (equally well we can do Haskell or Scheme). Up to pair programming.|
|Computers / Software||Help / Teach / Learn||Phil Cowans||Advanced||Mainly C/C++/Ruby, low level things, systems (esp. Linux), networking etc. Interested in machine learning, computer vision, graphics, things with matrices, etc.|
|Digital Electronics||Learn / Stumble blindly with others||Phil Cowans||Beginner-ish||Limited experience (and pretty rusty too), interested in embedded systems, microcontrollers, robotics, etc.|
|Machining||Help / Learn||Phil Cowans||Beginner||Generally keen to make something physical - happy to help out anywhere I can be useful.|
|Electronics / Hardware||Help / Learn||Chris Elsmore||Intermediate||Familiar with basic analogue & digital circuits, Arduino, as above, always willing try and help, and learn new things!|
|Metalwork, Machining and Woodwork||Learn||Chris Elsmore||Beginner||Haven't done any serious work since school, but I really enjoyed it, and would love to get back into it!|
|Metalwork||Teach/Learn||Roger Smith||Hedgerow Engineer||Orthodox and Unorthodox Engineering a speciality|
|MiG welding||Help/Teach||Simon Stirley||Competent||A lot of welding on cars and garage fabrications. Not always pretty, but solid!
I know we can't weld in the space yet, but happy to take things home and weld them for people in the meantime.
|Embedded Software||Help/Teach||Simon Stirley||Advanced||Lots of experience with code that has to be small and/or fast. For PIC, Arduino, Windows CE and a multitude of devices.|
|Domestic and Commercial Electrics||Help/Teach||Brian Corteil||Electrician||I have worked as a Domestic and Commercial Electrician, for the last 26 years since leaving school in the late 80s. I'm happy to help with anything to do with mains voltages in Makespace or your projects.|
|Domestic and Commercial integrated security systems||Help/Tech||Brian Corteil||Commission, install and design||When not working as an Electrician, I work as an integrated Security systems engineer. Types of systems I have worked on include CCTV, Access Control, Security Alarms, Fire Alarms and intercoms.|
|Sewing and other usually girls things||Help/Teach||Anne Harrison||Intermediate||Don't like to be stereotypical, but I am a woman and proud of it! I'm certainly not an expert tailor and there are lots of things I haven't done, but I am very comfortable with a sewing machine and happy to share this skill along with many other things that may be considered feminine!|
|Metalwork||Help/Teach||Marko Cosic||Advanced||Making things from metal in workshops. Fabrication and welding, machining, finishing. Automotive and experimental equipment background.|
|Composites||Help/Teach||Marko Cosic||Intermediate||Making things from composites. Moulds/form manufacture, wet layups, prepregs, resin infusion, curing, cutting, finishing. UAV background.|
|Automotive||Help/Teach||Marko Cosic||Advanced||I can show you how to fix it or hack it. Bits I don't know much about are trimming interiors, low level CANbus diagnostics, and modern diesels. If Land-Rover, MX5, Jaguar, and/or LPGed you're in luck.|
