Embedded Systems Design and Construction

This is a free online class. The course materials, videos, and a whole lot more are or will be available at this link. Watch the short introductory video by following the link in the upper right of this web page.

I will be hosting a weekly study session for members of this class. This will be on Monday evenings from about 8:00 to 9:00. I will not be so much teaching the class as available as a lab assistant and facilitator for anyone that would like an extra level of support. The class is aimed at makers that want to take their knowledge of embedded processors up a level. The study session is sponsored by Freeside Atlanta and the sessions are open to non-members as an educational outreach of Freeside Atlanta. It is suggested that attendees support the education mission of Freeside by making a voluntary donation of $5 per week, or $75 for the complete series, to Freeside Atlanta.

The official course starts on Thursday, January 23. I will be at Freeside Atlanta on Monday evenings, starting January 20 to answer questions and help anyone to get started with ordering materials if they want to do a group order. The class is 15 weeks in length which means the last study session will be May 5.

According to the link, above, the student may audit the class, take the class for free, or pay a small fee and receive a certificate of completion at the end of the class. I assume that means you have to finish the assignments to get the certificate.

Please read all the material available at the above link so you understand the extent of the class.

    Thanks for organizing this Wayne. I learned a bit, even from the very first meeting. Looking forward to the course.

    I know of a few people that may join the group or at least attend from time to time. If you intend to participate, be sure to register on EdX in case they have a cut-off date. Also, register on meetup as a member of the group so you can stay informed.

    Sorry I couldn't make it last night! I'm a bit under the weather this week, but I expect I will be able to make it next week.

    Great Meetup. Thanks, Wayne, for making it happen and all your insight and guidance. It was good meeting Seneca and Jarom! I think I might need the enthusiasm from a group to grok all that the Embedded systems offers. Here's the link to the facebook page:
