Workshop 88 is offering our introduction to the Arduino platform at our makerspace in Glen Ellyn. This class is OPEN to everybody, regardless of age or prior experience with programming or electronics. (Full members of Workshop 88 get free class registration as a benefit of membership.) Class attendees will learn how to configure their arduino programming environment, how to design simple circuits for interfacing with the arduino and how to write simple programs to control the arduino. What is Arduino, you ask? From their home page:
Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.
If you need to get an arduino, please see the Workshop 88 Arduino Store. Sales from that store are fulfilled by amazon.com, and help support Workshop 88. Alternatively, you can order Arduino systems from several places, including Adafruit and Sparkfun. Both companies have lots of tutorials and howtos to get you started with Arduinos. If you're looking for a local source to get Arduinos, try Trossen Robotics or Micro Center.
What you'll get from this class: If you choose the registration + materials option, we will have an arduino and assortment of electronics components for you to take home after the class. In this class you will learn how to start programming in the Arduino environment including interacting with the inputs and outputs of the Arduino. You need to register on eventbrite to get the materials option! (The Workshop 88 Arduino Store is by far a cheaper route to get supplies.)
You should bring: your arduino and electronics kit, and a laptop with the Arduino environment downloaded installed.
