arduino_uno_testWorkshop with Steven M. Miller
June 22nd and 23rd 2013
9-noon, 1pm-4pm
General: $75/day or $125 for both

Students (with valid current ID): 60/day or $100 for both
to register write: carlos (at)

Day 1: 

Introduction to the Arduino microcontroller board and software programming interface (IDE)

Programming basics: data structures, programming syntax, conditional branching, etc.

Interfacing Arduino with various input & output devices (sensors/controls and actuators/displays), such as: LEDs, switches, buttons, potentiometers & pressure sensors (variable resistors), piezos, etc.

Day 2:

Arduino & Max (interactive sound)

Arduino & Processing (interactive graphics)

Both days will consist of hands-on project-based learning; a minimum of lecture, a maximum of tinkering fun!

6 hrs/day (9-noon & 1-4)

**Can do both or either (2nd day only if they already have Arduino knowledge & experience)**

Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.

Arduino can sense the environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators. The microcontroller on the board is programmed using the Arduino programming language (based on Wiring) and the Arduino development environment (based on Processing). Arduino projects can be stand-alone or they can communicate with software running on a computer (e.g. Flash, Processing, MaxMSP).

The boards can be built by hand or purchasedpreassembled; the software can be downloaded for free. The hardware reference designs (CAD files) areavailable under an open-source license, you are free to adapt them to your needs.

Arduino boards and components will be supplied, but participants must supply their own laptops & download/install the relevant software prior to the workshop.

10 Arduino packs are available, so if we get more than 10 participants, they will need to double up. We can handle a maximum of 20 folks.
