Event Details

 A time lapse of the assembly is here.

Have you ever wanted to wear an Arduino on your wrist and tell the time 
with a giant LED matrix?  Then you'll love this three hour class at NYC 
Resistor.  In it you'll learn to solder as we put together the Adafruit 
Timesquare DIY watch kit, and then write a new watch firmware to add a 
new feature to the watch. 

This class is a great introduction to soldering and embedded 
programming.  The coin-cell powered Timesquare watch isn't exactly a 
normal Arduino and is very CPU limited, so techniques for limiting power 
consumption, interrupt handlers, brownout detection and some inline AVR 
assembly will be discussed. 

Included in the class is a watch kit and an FTDI cable for programming 
it for every student (a $49 value).  You'll need to provide your own laptop with the 
Arduino IDE installed. 

Taught by NYC Resistor member Trammel Hudson
