arduino beginners workshop: Mon Jan 26th

by on Jan.18, 2015, under Workshops


Arduino Beginners Workshop. For total beginners. All are welcome. Eric will show you how to get started with Arduino, the super-friendly microcontroller platform that even artists love. We’ll cover getting the software installed and going, hooking up the Arduino, and a little bit of basic programming, via explanation of the Examples. You too can cut and paste your way to a working project!
***You’ll need to bring your own Arduino (any kind will do) and a laptop on which you can install software. Also please bring any cables required to attach your Arduino to your laptop – typically this means an A to B USB cable. If you do not have an Arduino, you can purchase one at Creatron at 255 College Street (or online, of course). The Arduino Uno is the recommended board for beginners, but any arduino will do if you have a more specialized project in mind.***
Finding Hacklab: We’re at Queen and Dufferin, NW corner, buzz unit #12.
A PWCY (pay what you can) donation of $10 is suggested. Nobody turned away for lack of funds.

    Hey, these sound fantastic! I seem to always just miss them thoguh, so if you’re planning on (posting on here or reddit or wherever) can you please give about a weeks notice? I’d love to make it out.

    Hi George! We have been posting on Reddit ahead of time lately, but the posts get downvoted because the event is still too far away, so they don’t get seen much it seems. This post here on the blog was made 8 days before the event :) We’ll continue doing our best to get the word out, but the best way to keep up to date with what we’re up to is to subscribe to the events newsletter on the right hand side of our website, where it says “Sign-up for Hacklab’s Weekly Event Digest”.
