For the February UUASC-LA presentation we will be covering the Arduino a small, inexpensive, opensource microcontroller and software platform.
We will start with a quick presentation and demonstration of the Arduino by Guillaume Goussard titled Time-lapse creation with Arduino and DSLR.
This talk will show how to create a simple program to control a DSLR: Lock the focus and trigger the shutter to take a photo. The presentation will highlight microcontroller programming , loading the program into it, triggering events and reading feedbacks.
The feature presentation is "Uno, Due, Tre - the different families of Arduino Micro-controller boards" presented by Ralf Quint. This talk will cover the evolution from the early Arduino models to the current "bread and butter" boards (Arduino Uno, Arduino Leonardo etc), to the recent additions of non-AVR/Atmel based boards (Arduino Due, etc) as well the latest "hybrid" boards (Arduino Tre, Arduino Yun), which provide both a "normal" Arduino (Leonardo) system as well as a RISC CPU running Linux derivations on the same board.
About the Speakers
Ralf Quint has been programming for well over 3 decades, starting back in the pre-PC, 8 bit days. He is currenly working as an self-employed IT service consultant who's trying to branch out to software development again.
Ralf has done on and off embedded programming work from the early days on Intel 8051 and Motorola 68C11 through various PIC implementations and more recently with various Arduinos as well Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone Black.
Guillaume Goussard has been working in embedded software for home entertainment for 6 years. He's currently working at MGO as System Architect.
Guillaume worked with PIC, Gumstix and Raspeberry Pi as well as Arduino on several projects including a remotely controlled coffee brewer.
UUASC would like to thank Jason Elkin at M-Go for hosting this month's presentation and Media Temple for providing the food and beverages.
