Arduino 101

We will be covering the basics of the Arduino programming platform. This will include an overview of Arduino hardware, development environment, and programming language. After walking through the basics, we will fire up an Arduino board and go through the steps of compiling and loading a program.

What to Bring:

  • Laptop with a USB port (not required, but strongly suggested)
  • Arduino Board (not required, but strongly suggested)

What does it Cost:

  • Members: Free!
  • Non-members: suggested donation of 2 to 10 dollars (we need to keep the heat on)

    Does anyone have an extra Arduino board I could buy? I looked online earlier this week then saw RadioShack had them in stores, so I went and bought one at the store, but realized after that they charge $5 more in the store than online so now I'm mad at them and want to return it haha

      Hmm, we may. However, it would have to be solder together. We dont have any for sale that are ready to go. If interested I can check for you, but you will probably not have it for tomorrow.

      I'm all set. I worked out the issues with RadioShack

    Question, who will be bringing an Arduino with them? I have two that I will share with the group.

    One more thing. If possible, try to download and install the Arduino SW before the workshop tomorrow. http://arduino.cc/en/main/software

    If you cannot, that ok to. I just want to make sure we can cover everything in the time allotted. See you all tomorrow!

      What Radio Shack sells is a kit, right? I picked one up today but that's not going to do me any good tomorrow. So, that's a no. I'm happy to huddle around a laptop or share a board in some other way.

      I can confirm that RadioShack sells them, but they are $34.99 in store and $29.99 on their website. They will claim in the store that they can't price match, but they actually can.

    It looks like I might have to cancel, something critical has come up, and don't see a way around it :( Will try to join the next session, sorry guys.

    I have an Arduino Uno I'll bring with me, but will also bring my TinyDuino just so you guys can take a closer look at it, and various I/O modules.

    Can bring tools, scope, etc. if helpful.

      Lorne, for this workshop I dont think that will be needed. However, there are a few workshops coming up where we could definitely borrow some of that equipment. Ill let you know when it gets a little closer.

      Danarchy, you are in luck! You do not have to be a member to take advantage of any of our workshops. Hope to see you sometime soon.
