A workshop to get your Arduino talking to your computer. This is *NOT* a tutorial as such, but a time when a bunch of people who want to get going with Arduinos start doing it. If there are problems we can all work them out together.

You'll need a laptop, an arduino and a cable to connect it. There are a couple options but the one I know about is a USB to TTL serial cable. The docs on the arduino you select should discuss this. A breadboard will be handy for some arduino types but not for others.

The hard part! This will not be recurring which makes it a little easier... Need to give people time to order their arduinos if they don't already have one, so how about 2 weeks out at minimum. Let's try a table.
