Workshop: MicroFlo, visual Arduino programming

  • December 12, 2013 · 7:00 PM

MicroFlo is an open source programming environment for Arduino where you can develop applications visually, by hooking together components on a canvas to form a graph. You can read sensors, control motors, sound and light - anything that a microcontroller can do.

The project is still in its early stages, and the goal of the workshop is to introduce it to users and potential contributors.

Preliminary contents
* Introduction: Goals and background for the MicroFlo project
* Setting up the environment
* Making your first Arduino programs with MicroFlo
* Adding new components and hacking MicroFlo itself

Attendees should bring a laptop (Mac/Win/Linux OK), and an Arduino. Alternatively you can buy an Arduino at Bitraf. Some experience with Arduino is preferred, but not strictly necessary.

If everyone attending speaks Norwegian, the workshop will be held in Norwegian - otherwise English.

    Henri and the NoFlo UI team just released details on their plans for a flow-based programming development service: http://bergie.iki.fi/blog/flowhub/

    Thanks to everyone who participated!
    As mentioned, there will be more workshops to come. First bigger one maybe in January. Apart from that, I am usually present at Bitraf meetups on Mondays (free software night), and sometimes on Thursdays (build night). I hope that some of you will try to use MicroFlo for a real project. Do not hesitate to ask for help if you do.

    For those of you who could not make it, you can follow the same tutorial we went through:

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
