Arduino Programming for Beginners (December)
Sunday, December 5, 2010 at 2:00 PM - Sunday, December 19, 2010 at 5:00 PM (EST)
Somerville, United States
In this class, students of all levels will learn how to program an Arduino microcontroller. An Arduino is an easy-to-learn open source microcontroller that takes all sorts of sensor inputs, follows user generated programs, and outputs data and power to the world. Arduinos are commonly used in robotics, mechatronics, and all manners of electronics projects around the world, and are supported by a huge community of people. This class will specifically focus on how to program an Arduino to accomplish tasks, and will not touch on circuit design or component selection.
The goal of this class is to teach students how to write, debug, and transmit programs to Arduinos from their own computers.
Students will purchase microcontrollers and supplementary cabling from the instructor (around $30) on the first day of class. Students will need access to a programming computer at home, and it is preferred (but not required) that they bring a laptop to class. 5 laptops are available to be borrowed during classtime.
