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.

    I spent most of the evening trying to get windows 8 to recognize my board. (Hey, I'm a Linux guy after all!) Turns out the USB cable that TI sent me allowed power to the board, but did not allow it to be recognized by the USB driver. Once I changed it out with the USB cable from my Samsung phone, it worked fine.

    It was great to meet others interested in microcontrollers. Really looking forward to the other projects, especially the game development at the end.

    Sorry I missed last night. Looks like ya'll had a good response(at least from the RSVP's). I am planning on making it next Monday. How's everyone finding the class so far?

      Wayne had the TI 4C board working with the Lesson 2 program running. He made some tweeks to show how different register settings and timings affected the blinking light.

    Welcome to those that just signed up. I have already been on the course site today and it should be no problem to get in the class and get caught up. Even if one has not ordered parts yet, it should be workable. I ordered some parts on Tuesday and they came in Thursday (yesterday) Wow!
