Arduino workshop at Noisebridge!


I (Michael Shiloh) am no longer leading this workshop, but I'm leaving this here in case anyone else wants to lead it.

What:

Learn how to use Arduino hardware and software, develop your skills, work on your Arduino project, show off your Arduino project, get answers and suggestions to your Arduino problems or questions

  • 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.

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

When: 18:30 every 2nd Thursday ARDUINO IS ON VACATION AND WILL RESUME 1/13

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

Questions? Comments? michael AT teachmetomake DOT com

Cost: Free, but donations to the space and/or to the instructor are accepted to support this kind of work
