Introduction to Arduino Workshop

Come join us at hack.rva for a fun filled workshop introducing the Arduino Microcontroller.    

UPDATE - We're happy to announce all of the workshop participants will receive these Ultimate Starter Kits.  They include everything you'll need and a 72 page booklet.  

UPDATE to the UPDATE - There is an Introduction to Arduino workshop wiki now.  Take a look and feel free to edit it.

What We'll learn/do:

1. Background - A little bit about the arduino and open source hardware.

2. Arduino Basics - How to blink LED's, upload code, simple control of servos, etc.

3. Original Fun - Create something original to compete in a simple project based competition.  Don't worry, you'll be provided with plans and materials that will work.  The only goals are originality and fun. Completion of the task is optional.     

4. Learning Beyond the Workshop - Information on how to participate in the Arduino community so you can flex your new-found powers beyond the hack.rva workshop. Including websites to find projects, parts, additional shields, and code.

5.  What to Bring - A laptop with the Arduino software installed.  A willingness to have fun and make mistakes.  

6.  Cost - $65 gets you the workshop, your own arduino, and all the components you'll need.

    I heard this was one of the best workshops HackRVA has ever had. Way to go everyone!

    They did a great job with the class. In a few short hours, I went from arduino idiot to being able to control (mostly) a remote control car with it. Very cool stuff.

    What kind of kits are you all getting? Should I come armed with extra sensors, motors, etc. just in case things get crazy?

      Oh wait. I can't make it. Dammit!

    what if I have an Ardrinio?

      Everybody needs at least 5 arduinos right?

      Just fooling around David. Like Kramer said, we did thank about the folks that had Arduinos already, we just weren't sure how to integrate that into the pricing since we're using total kits. I think we might be able to do another workshop in the future where we do it for people who already have them. But again, having more than Arduino ain't a bad idea :)

    I'm very interested in this meetup but I'm not sure about the date and funding being available until next week. Do you plan to offer a workshop like this again?

    July 10, 2014

    • Robert K.

      Hi Lauren. If this workshop goes well, the plan is to repeat it. Either way I'm sure we'll have more Arduino workshops in the future.
