Arduino: Beyond the Blink
Sunday, August 26, 2012 from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM (EDT)
Another Arduino workshop at LVL1!
This one's different, though. This time, we'll be diving deep into software for the Arduino. We'll cover the IDE, built-in Libraries, their uses and pitfalls. We'll go over the current Arduino sheild ecosystem, and investigate embedded C best-practices.
This workshop will be strictly BYOA (bring your own Arduino), and will run about 4 hours. Feel free to stick around afterwards to ask any questions we didn't cover. Buy your Arduino from Radioshack, Sparkfun, or any number of other online vendors. Bring your laptop and a USB cable, and we'll make the Arduino sing.
Here's a detailed list of topics covered:
- What is a Microcontroller?
- What training wheels does Arduino provide?
- What are sheilds?
- What are libraries?
- Getting into the IDE
- Built-in Peripherals
- Basic embedded C techniques
- Going beyond Arduino
When & Where
LVL1 is a Louisville hackerspace.
LVL1's mission is to provide a shared space for collaborative technical and artistic experimentation in the Louisville area. We are a non-profit organization following the hackerspace model currently flourishing in cities all over the world. Our goal is to create an open workspace where engineers, artists and educators can meet and collaborate. LVL1 is where we begin making amazing things.
