Hack Pittsburgh hosts second Arduino class

Written by Ced Kurtz on .

We had a good time assembling Arduinos with the Hack Pittsburgh gang last month, and they are offering a second class on programming the little beasties.  Here's the summary:

Build a physical pixel with your Arduino microcontroller! In this introductory-level class, participants will:

  • set up and configure the Arduino environment on their laptop
  • learn basic electronics skills while building a small, functional circuit
  • write code that:
    • explores the inputs and outputs offered by the Arduino platform
    • reads a dimmer
    • controls the color of an RGB LED
    • sends messages to your laptop for status and debugging purposes
  • meet interesting and like-minded people who are passionate about technology and the DIY ethic

Prerequisites: an Arduino, a laptop, and a cable to connect the two
Date and Time: Saturday, August 29, 2009 at 2:00 pm
Location: HackPittsburgh, 1936 5th Avenue
Cost: $30 for members, $40 for non-members (includes all materials not specified in the prerequisites)
