Workshop: Intro to Arduino -- A Hands-On Overview


Heard of something called Arduino and want to learn more? Ever want to build your own logic-controlled electronic gadgets? Arduino is used to create many things, from "smart" lights to robots to controlling 3D printers, and is very popular due to its low cost and versatility.

In this introductory class you will learn:
* What can an Arduino do?
* Using the Arduino IDE to program an Arduino board
* Uploading your first Arduino program
* How to write a simple program for Arduino

By the end of this workshop, you should be comfortable with working with an Arduino on your own and have the confidence to explore more of what the Arduino environment has to offer. Feel free to hang out in the free Arduino meetup afterwards to see or take part in other projects people are working on.
