Without a doubt, the best way to get into microcontrollers is with the simple and powerful Arduino. It's accesible and easy to set up, which is great for total beginners. It's powerful, flexible and well accepted by makers and engineers. In this three-hour class we will:
- Learn how to program using the Arduino environment
- Wire up a circuit and load up code to read sensors and make an LED blink
- Cover some basic useful circuits and code snippets
When you leave, you'll have a micro-controller, a mini-USB cable, and a handful of parts to play with.
Please bring a laptop with the Arduino environment. It's available at http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software for all OSs.
You get a fully-assembled Arduino UNO - there is no assembly or soldering required in this class.
The class will be taught by NYC Resistor member Ranjit Bhatnagar
When & Where
NYC Resistor is a hacker collective with a shared space located in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. We meet regularly to share knowledge, hack on projects together, and build community. Our interests range from laser-cutting to knitting, and programming to pop-up books.
All NYC Resistor events are strictly 18+, and attendees are expected to abide by our Code of Conduct, which can be found at https://www.nycresistor.com/participate/.
