I'm currently based in Montreal where i teach different classes:
I'm Part-time faculty at Concordia University's Design & Computation Arts Program.
Currently teaching the into Creative Computation & Network Culture Class.
I'm also co-teaching a class at UQAM's DESS Design d'événements. The class is called Micro-projet, design d'événement urbain, and students get to design and produce a new installation for Montreal's Nuit Blanche.
I also run intro to electronics for artists workshop series at the Société des Arts Technologiques. We run intro classes twice a year (9 hours total) and some more advanced topics once in a while.
I'm in the process of putting together a class on Electronic Textiles for the Centre des textiles contemporain de Montréal.
I often get asked where to find resources in the city for Electronics. Here's a brief list:
1. Robotshop: they have all sorts of robotics stuff and have expanded their inventory to include a lot of Sparkfun products. They are located about 45min from Montreal.
2. Abra Electronics: Good place to find the basic electronic components. They also sell electronic tools for reasonable prices. You can reach their store by subway.
3. Addison sells wholesale stuff. Some really cheap, not always long lasting but fun to experiment with. Also in the city.
4. Spikenzie Labs A fairly new player, they sell Arduinos and all sorts of related products. Worth checking out. And they are downtown!
5. Digikey. One of the largest resellers of all electronic components. Not as beginner friendly but a great resources. Order early on the Canadian site and you'll get your stuff before noon the next day if you're lucky.
