Introduction to programming with the Arduino

By fx, on 2012-02-14 17:22



A two-day introductory workshop on basic programming principles and their use with the Arduino micro-controller. The Arduino is a small but powerful computing device that can be used to control lights, speakers, motors, sensors and other devices, and is commonly used in art installations and robotics. It is easy to program and requires no prior programming experience. If you are an artist, tinkerer or inventor who would like to learn how to use the Arduino in your own projects, this is the workshop for you.

The first day consists of an introduction to the basics of computer programming, for people who have no programming experience. Students will learn with hands-on examples on the Arduino.

The second day will delve into the specifics of the Arduino platform, and how to use its inputs and outputs to sense and control things in the real world.

If you already have an Arduino and some basic programming knowledge, but want to brush up on your Arduino skills, you can choose to attend only the second day.

Each day will be approximately four hours, from 1PM to 5PM.

Please bring a laptop if you have one.

Attendees must register at EventBrite.
