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)

    ditto what Lorne said. This was my first time visiting the Syracuse Innovators Guild and first time using Arduino. I had no idea what to expect. The class was well-attended, I would say packed, but organizers worked quickly to accommodate everyone who showed up with a seat in the class (or service closet ). Looking forward to part two of this presentation, and I will plan to come early :)

    Very good overview of a big topic in limited time.

    I am not going to be able to attend this evening. Hurt my back. I did sign up for myself and a guest. His name is Victor and he still plans on attending. I hope this is not a problem. Thanks!

    Is there going to be enough room for people to actually work on the boards? It looks like a lot have signed up.

      Good question. It will be a full house for sure, but there will be room for people to setup laptops and work.

    Looking forward to learning more about the Arduino.

    I would definitely steer you towards the Arduino Uno Rev3. Its has everything you will need for this workshop and many to come. The Arduino compiler will work on Mac/Windows/Linux. Just search for Arduino download and you can pick it up. You can install it in advance, but I will be walking through that topic during the workshop itself if you want to wait.

    As for tutorials, there are tons out there. Try:

    I agree with Andrew. I'm completely new to this and I'd love some direction as what to buy. I figure I need the Arduino UNO R3 as seen here on Amazon: Any advice would be appreciated...

    Do you mind posting a Arduino FAQ or basic guide so I can figure out where to buy a board, and what type to get? Not sure if it matters - can you clear it up for me?

    Does it matter if the laptop is PC or Mac?

    The last time this was scheduled I showed up to a locked door. I think we need an explanation before I come again.

      Hello Harold. I think you are referring to the Arduino 201 class which was scheduled for earlier in September. I had been trying to get the circuit together for a while and had to push back the date a few times. Things got busy at the end of August and I did not remember to cancel it all together. Im sorry to have inconvenienced you and will not let it happen again. The 101 class which is what I am planning to present on Oct 2nd is ready to go.
