Fritzing

fschemerawsmall-jpeg-image-700x230-pixelsDaniel showed up the Python, Processing, and Pizza tonight with Fritzing on the mind.  Firtzing is this awesome new tool that is based on the ideas Processing and Arduino. Instead of doing code though, Fritzing does electronics board design.  If you know how to put together a breadboard, or can figure it out, Fritzing will auto-generate a PCB and schematic based on just that. It’s clearly still in beta, but already it looks like it will knock the socks off of anyone who has tried to work with Eagle or other PCB design programs.

We are going to be running a Fritzing study group starting next Thursday, right here at Hive 76. The Study Group will run from 7PM to 9PM out of our space at 915 Spring Garden (dial #500 to get let in). If you want to find out more, join the discussion on our mailing list.

Plus, I just like the word ‘Fritzing’…
