Arduino 101 - Make your own Arduino and Learn to Program it to benefit Japan!
Saturday, March 26, 2011 from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM (EDT)
Brooklyn, United States
This is the first of a series of classes to help Japan recover from
the effects of the devastating earthquake and tsunami of March 11th.
All proceeds from this class will be donated to the Japan Society's
earthquake relief fund: http://www.japansociety.org/earthquake
This is your friendly introductory class to soldering and
micro-controllers. In this four-hour class we will:
* Solder together a Freeduino board (an Arduino Duemilanove-compatible board)
* Learn how to program it using the Arduino environment
* Wire up several circuits and load up code to read sensors and light LEDs
* Cover variables, functions, basic Arduino functionality
* Show you how to get more help in the future for all your projects
When you leave, you’ll have a micro-controller, a mini-USB cable, a
power supply and a few programs to play with.
Please bring a laptop with the Arduino environment on it. It’s
available at http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software.
The class will be taught by NYC Resistor members Adam Mayer and Nick Vermeer.
