Event description

Description

We partnered with Django Girls PDX for our DIY Sex Robot class. Learn how to code a vibration pattern for a take-home vibrator. This is a workshop is targeted at total beginners! No previous programming experience is required.

Facilitated by Hailee Kenney and Terian Koscik, this beginner workshop will teach programming basics of data types, functions, conditionals, and give an introduction to interfacing with and programming hardware.

Using programmable vibrators, attendees will write their own customized vibration programs, and in doing so gain perspective on how programming can be used in everyday life. We will go through the process of setting up the connection between the vibrator, an Arduino, and a computer, installing the Arduino software, and making a simple program together. Throughout the workshop, I will discuss some of the underlying technical concepts behind what we’ll be building, and provide examples of how these skills relate to jobs in the tech industry.

Attendees should bring a laptop with the Arduino IDE installed (https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software). We’ll go over installation at the workshop as well. Please note, this workshop requires separate registration and is limited to 15 participants.

This workshop is made possible by Clone-A-Willy.
