LA | Arduino+Raspberry Pi Message Board › Harry, I'd like to reproduce the Arduino setup you had at the last meeting.
Santa Monica, CA
EDIT: This could also be a group project! Those who would like to could work on the project outlined below. We would each be doing our own kit, only we'd work on it together.
I thought it was cool, and I'm sure I'm not the only one! I'd like to reproduce the Arduino project you showed at the last meeting. And understand it enough to hack it a little.
Using the Arduino board (or any embedded controller board for that matter) to 'push' sensor data to a 'live' webpage is something I've been wanting to do for a while now!
I'm willing to document my step-by-step learning process sufficient to present it as a talk, or more likely a series of talks.
I didn't get to see your talk at the meeting, and thanks for taking the time afterward to explain the basics of what you were doing with the Arduino!
After the meeting, curiosity got the better of me and I started looking around for an example. I found this post on your site:
The blog post above links to this SourceForge page on the pySerial API:
Were those part of the software components used in the project you showed during your talk?
Just to be clear, I'm not asking you to tutor me. I'd like just enough assistance to reproduce the project and get it up and running.
What do you say?
p.s.: I'm doing a basic online tutorial course on Python. Though basic, it seems comprehensive enough to be able to understand the 'basic mechanics' of the pySerial API, and any Python code contained in this project.
For anyone interested, here is a link to the beginner-level Python tutorial. It's a nice setup:
A far more comprehensive tutorial from Guido van Rossum, the person who wrote the Python language/interpreter:
