What to bring
If you want to get introduced into electronics, even if you have zero experience, just come along, no need to bring anything. You buy a kit from Mitch and you'll have all the hardware required to make it. And of course awesome support and guidance from Mitch himself.
If you have you're own project you are working on, take it with you and bring it over to work on. Mitch will be happy to look at your project and see if he can help you out with problems you're facing.
If you do have your own preferred soldering iron and related, you are of course very welcome to bring it over. More tools means less waiting to share stuff!
