Details

• What we'll do
This class is 10 classes long, not indefinite. I'll have to fix that with the meet-up scheduler.
I scheduled 1.5 hours incase things go over, I prefer to stick to an hour, but I want to address all questions. Feel free to come to whatever part of whatever class you wish.

This class is for anyone who wants to learn how to read datasheets to move into component selection, anyone who wants to understand arduino in depth, and definitely for anyone who wants a deep understanding of microcontrollers. We'll be going through datasheets related to the Arduino Nano board to understand every bit of the system. This is not specific to a Nano, it is just the module I have chosen. No programming is required, this class is about reading datasheets to expand knowledge of all electronic components, not to use or find specific components. That being said, familiarity with basic electronics (voltage, current) and basic programming (variable setting, function definition) will help.

Please see my github for complete syllabus and materials. Please reach out with any questions.

I am more than happy to answer questions from anyone at any time about the material. if you want to get another explanation of something, you can grab me after class or email me.

• What to bring
Nothing is required. A computer that can run the Arduino IDE along with an Arduino will be useful to follow along if desired. Please see the syllabus for what the information about the IDE required. I'll try to find some Arduino modules around the space as possible. It's very possible to follow along with JUST the IDE.
