This is a series of 4 workshops geared toward beginners with no experience in programming.
Workshop #2 will be a continuation of the previous from the Arduino series. We will cover more of the Arduino language and learn the difference between digital and analog pins using button input, rgb leds and several sensors. We’ll learn about debugging and using external Libraries. As always, everyone will be working with their Arduino board, following along to expand on your knowledge and design your personal projects.
About the kits for these workshops:
We have had some questions about whether people can buy their own parts. We are asking that you purchase the pre-made kit from us so that everyone has exactly the same materials. We have worked hard to source the best prices, and the only other comparable kits online (such as the Sparkfun Arduino Inventors kit) costs ~$30 more. We are passing the savings directly to you for our many hours of best-deal-finding.
The kit for Arduino workshops 1-3 includes : Arduino Uno SMD, Breadboard, Clear Self-Adhesive, USB Cable A to B – 6 Foot, Relay SPDT Sealed, Buzzer – PC Mount 12mm 2.048kHz, Mini Photocell, Hobby Motor, Trimpot 10K with Knob, Momentary Push Button Switch – 12mm Square, Resistor 10k Ohm 1/6th Watt PTH, 330 Ohm or 560 Ohm resistor, Diode Small Signal – 1N4148, LEDs, Tri-Color LED, Jumper Wire, 9v batteries, Shipping
