Hands on Arduino Lab

About this Lab 
The purpose of this lab to establish a baseline of knowledge and experience. We will discuss the pros and cons of different Arduino boards, varieties of shields, powering your project, and various resources available. We will build a small project and program it.

The project will be a level meter. Though level meters are usually used to measure sound, they can respond to any analog input. This 37-second video shows the meter that we will be building responding to a potentiometer, light, and temperature. The possibilities are endless, and everything looks cooler with meter lights.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
