Basic Arduino Class

This class is a basic introduction to physical computing with Arduino.

To keep things simple and explain things at length, we have limited the number of topics in this class to the very basics. Our goal is to cover less material than any previous Arduino class in the history of electronics. Sign up for this class if that sounds appealing to you.

Some experience with electronics, programming, or both, is useful, but not required.

You will learn:

• How to connect the Arduino to your computer

• How to blink an LED

• How to read input from a pushbutton and a thermistor

• How to approach more advanced topics and attach other sensors and actuators

The class fee includes a parts kit with an Arduino compatible board and all the other parts you need. You MUST bring a laptop running Windows, Linux or Mac OS X that is capable of running Arduino. No refunds will be given if you forget a laptop.

You may bring a guest, who will not receive a parts kit.

    This class comes with lifetime support (offer expires when the first person to take the class dies ;-)). You can always email me ([masked]), or ask on the general Hack Manhattan list (https://list.hackmanhattan.com/). It can be high traffic. One way to deal with that is to send questions directly to [masked] and then monitor replies at http://hackmanhattan.com:4000/

    Feel free to ask specific questions about a problem or general ones about a project idea.

    We have some intercom/buzzer problems that are supposed to be fixed by the time you get here. But in case they are not, the phone at the space is[masked]

    Hi everyone,

    Remember to bring a laptop to the class tonight. If you can, try to install Arduino before you arrive: http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
