Learn how to program Arduino
A laptop and Arduino is all you need to interface with the real world.
Bring the a laptop along with a little imagination.
We'll provide an Arduino, Cables, BreadBoard, and Electronics components to get you started. These materials alone are a $50 dollar value !
We’ll dream what is possible and teach you how to get started into the world of microcontrollers.
What is this Arduino thing?
and why can I not find a phonetic spelling?
Arduino is a programming language. yes! we’ll be writing the code...
Arduino is a open hardware standard. yes! this part is important.
Arduino is a development kit. please download and install the latest Arduino IDE before class:
Arduino can DO things:
- Sequence LEDs
- Talk to your TV
Arduino can LISTEN too:
- anything on your laptop. yes. even the internet.
- farts? (srsly. go talk to @qtechknow)
Bring your fresh ideas;)
