Basic Arduino Class with Trinket

This class is a basic introduction to physical computing with the Adafruit Trinket, a smaller, cheaper variant of the 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 a Trinket 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.

The Trinket is programmed in the same language and the same programming environment as a regular Arduino. Everything you learn in this class will be applicable to “full” Arduinos, with the exact same code and circuits.

    Hi everyone,

    I look forward to seeing you at the class tonight. Don’t forget to bring a laptop!

    If you can, please try to install the Arduino software. Trinket requires a number of modifications to the software. The easiest way to get started is to download the special Trinket version of Arduino (under the headline “The Fast Way”):

    It can run alongside the regular Arduino software if you have that installed.
