We hear this a lot at the Hack Factory: people want to play with the Arduino, but they don't know where to start. If you've thought that too, then here's your chance to play! Arduino for English Majors is a friendly intro to the popular microcontroller. This class is designed for people with no background in electronics or programming, and taught by an actual English major (with help from someone who actually knows electricy stuff). If an English major can figure this stuff out, you can too!
11/10 and 11/17 class split into two sessions
7:00pm - 9:30pm
$30 non-members/$20 members
Students will need to supply their own Arduino and a laptop. If you don't have a laptop let us know, we can try to arrange for a computer.
