Short Course: Arduino for Beginners
Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs – light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message – and turn it into an output – activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online. You can tell your board what to do by sending a set of instructions to a micro-controller.
Arduino has been the brain of thousands of projects, from everyday objects to artworks and complex scientific instruments. A worldwide community of makers – students, hobbyists, artists, programmers, and professionals – has gathered around this open-source platform, their contributions have added up to an incredible amount of accessible knowledge that can be of great help to novices and experts alike.
This four part workshop has been designed to introduce Arduino, and its potential, to complete beginners. No prior knowledge is required – this is an opportunity to explore this technology and understand what it can do for you and how you can use it to develop interactive projects.
