Arduino class at Noisebridge!

When: See Current Events. Usually every second and fourth Thursday evenings of the month.

Who: Michael Shiloh has taught hundreds of people how to have fun with Arduino

What:

  • For absolute beginners, I, and others, will help you install, set up, and write your first Arduino program
  • For intermediate beginners, we will help you as you work through the included exercises to help you develop you knowledge, skill, and confidence
  • For those interested in hardware, we will build our own either from kits such as RBBB or Volksduino, or from scratch on a block of wood. The original breadboarding!!
  • For those interested in other things, a playgroup environment will provide encouragement, support, assistance, and an opportunity to share.

What should you bring?

To get the most out of the workshop, you want to participate in the activity. This requires a laptop and an Arduino. You might use one of the public computers at Noisebridge.

Arduino: Either bring your own or I'll have the standard Duemilanove for sale at $30 each. NOTE: I AM CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK!

Any accessories such as sensors or actuators that you wish to experiment with. If you have none, you can borrow from the Arduino junkbox, which also accepts donations of same.

Want to save time?

Download, and, if you can, try to install the Arduino IDE from http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software
