Arduino class at Noisebridge!
When: Either bi-monthly or monthly, Thursdays at 6PM
General: First hour, aimed at beginners, is a crash course in basic electronics, basic programming, and basic install of Arduino IDE on your laptop.
Second hour presumes everyone knows the basics, and explores a more advanced topic, such as I2C communication between two Arduinos, interfacing to Processing and/or The Internet, or multitasking. Thus, people who already know the basics can simply show up for the second hour.
7/8/2010: This week we'll learn about processing and how to get an Arduino to talk to a Processing program running on your laptop.
What should you bring?
Laptop or other personal computer extremely helpful but not required. I can provide one or two loaners but please contact me beforehand so I can bring as many as I'll need.
Arduino required: Either bring your own or I'll have the standard Duemilanove for sale at $30 each.
Any sensors or actuators that you wish to experiment with. I'll have some loaners for anyone who has none yet.
Want to save time?
Download, and, if you can, try to install the Arduino IDE from http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software
