Reminder: Please bring your laptop to the class!
This is a series of 3 workshops geared toward advanced programmers.
On Workshop #1 we'll start with a brief description of Arduino (which will include installing the software and exploring the IDE), and lots of examples. We will progress into programming the Arduino through a hands-on blink sequence exercise, followed by creating a circuit with 8 LEDs in various light sequences that you control. We'll cover Arduino syntax as well as how the Arduino board treats inputs and outputs. We'll end the workshop with covering inputs in the digital domain with buttons.
Cost: $75 Class + $75 materials kit fee – includes Arduino, cable, wire, batteries, LEDs, and all necessary components.
You can purchase the kit HERE or buy it in person when you arrive.
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.
