        • You will be able to drive into the bus circle, you can NOT exit your car.  I will be there to pick up stuff and hand you stuff.
        • I have your lab books and a few other items.  I will send out an email and text if you have more than your engineering note book
        • If you are returning the 8 Bit computer, and I have not already picked it up, this is when you can drop it off.

2) LINKED IN - To stay connected, make sure you are linked to me on Linked In... Why? That is one of the main ways I'll stay connected professionally with you.  It's how I'll check on how you are doing in the future.  It's how I'll let you know of cool stuff I find, and it's how I'll let you know about any jobs or internships I come across... It's also how you will request any letters or recommendation.

  • If could tell a future Mechatronics student how they should get ready, and what to focus on to get the most out of the class, what would that advice be?
4) Keep working on Python and the 8 Bit computer... check past blog posts for assignments...

1) Mr Burnham Saying Hi with some updates (sorry, I did not get my mic in the right spot...)

Do a Flipgrid

  • Say Hi to Future Mechatronics Engineering Students - Think "Recruitment Video"
    1. Say Hi and your First Name - Not your LAST Name "Hi, my name is Jim... "
    2. Did you like the Mechatronics Class? Why?
    3. What was the hardest or most challenging project or topic
    4. What did you like the BEST? (it can be the same topic as question #3)
    5. If could tell a future Mechatronics student how they should get ready, and what to focus on to get the most out of the class, what would that advice be?


3) Special Instructions or Announcements:
  • Check out what up-coming Events <way out of Date>

    4) Python LABs 

    • Lab#1 Reading more stuff

      • Challenge #1: Using regular expressions, read the "open", "high" and "low" price for the day
      • Challenge #2 add input('enter a ticker symbol ') and make it so you can enter a ticker symbol and create a program that will find the stock you enter... this is hard... I can't get it to work yet... I'm close... but can't do it yet... search for "how to use variables in regular expressions"  this may help

      5) Ben Eater's 8 Bit Computer

      OK, we will spend Wednesday this week at 9:15 and 2:00 to focus on the "Next Steps" for the 8 Bit Computer and what you should be working on.   Basically find the place you are in the flow in the 8 bit Computer Build Page from Focus on Foundations page and keep working. It is best to use the Focus on Foundations SLACK channel to ask for support questions... this way me, Randy, or any other students can help you.  Just post your question in the right channel.

          3) Python
          Having issues understanding Regular Expressions? be sure to watch the videos from py4e.com  - https://www.py4e.com/lessons/regex and also see the following links https://www.analyticsvidhya.com/blog/2015/06/regular-expression-python/ and https://www.learnpython.org/en/Regular_Expressions. Try out these examples first then go back to my code... I know I just dropped a hard lab on you with out much regular expression learning...
