Getting Started With The Particle Photon - Workshop

This is a past event

30 people went


Our first meetup of 2019!

This month we have our very own Pete Gallagher coming to run a workshop with the Particle Photon.

ALSO! One lucky attendee will win a Particle Photon Maker Kit worth £90!

Getting Started with the Particle Photon - Workshop:

Particle have very kindly donated some Particle Photon Maker Kits:

So, to celebrate, Pete will be bringing along 5 Photon Maker kits for us to play with.

Pete will introduce the Particle Platform, the Photon Hardware and the various tools needed to get started with the Particle Photon.

We'll run through a few small projects so that you can get accustomed to how everything ties together.

You'll obviously need to bring a laptop with you... PC or MAC will do as we'll be using the web for the vast majority of the evening!

There'll be a few kits available to use on the evening, however, you may need to share.

If you don't fancy sharing, or want to carry on further in your own time, do feel free to buy yourself either a maker kit;

Or a Particle Photon Wi-Fi Development Kit:
