Arduino 101

We'll introduce the Arduino platform - a valuable tool for embedded electronics prototyping.

In this introductory course, we will help you with the questions below:

1. What is Arduino? How did it get started? Who invented it? Why?

2. What are some of the interesting things that people are already doing with Arduino?

3. Which Arduino is right for me? How can I tell? Where can I get one? Can I purchase the wrong one?

4. How do I get started with sample projects? Bring your laptop (Windows, OS X, or Linux) and we will install the development tools on it with you.

5. Is there a good tutorial that I can follow? We will provide one for you and do as many projects together as we have time.

Bring your Arduino projects (in any state)! There's usually experienced people around we can point you towards.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there!

    Will there be an Arduino 102 class? I'm interested in learning to interface sensors to collect and store data. For example, creating a temperature probe or moniter a light or turn on and off a pump.

      Liz, that's the plan. We're hoping to have subsequent arduino workshops in the short term. Keep bugging us about it - it'll happen eventually.

    Great space. Exactly the kind of instructions was expecting from a 101 session. I left with the tools and resources I need to explore arduino on my own.
    Couldn't tell if there was a bathroom, but the space has great potential.

    What's a good place to buy the Arduino Uno board ?

      Radio Shack has em. MicroCenter has em. Online there are many places. One I like is adafruit industries. (adafruit.com).

    Hi, is there any more room for tonight?

    January 22, 2013

    • Jim S.

      Ben,

      We are really getting crowded. Having said that, please bring your enthusiasm, your passion for learning (and your $10.00 of course - LOL). Just come. We'll squeeze somehow.

      Brad,

      We are really getting tight on space. However, please come, if you can. See you there!

    Amazon usually has the best price and the fastest and lowest shipping costs. Though the Radio Shack price is great for Arduinos surpisingly.

    What do I need to bring to this class? Never worked with this platform before but I am interested in getting started.

      In other words, just come and enjoy!!

      Sweet. I do have a laptop and an arduino kit that was suggested by a friend. Bringing them both.
