Arduino Day Schedule

Arduino Day, Saturday, Apr 2
1PM to 7PM at Interlock

1-2 will be a socializing time when people can come in, meet others, have some lunch and discuss electronics projects.
At 2PM we will have a “Getting Started with Arduino” if you want to know what this is all about and how to get started.
At 3PM we will open the floor to anyone that wants to show off the cool projects they have done with Arduinos.
At any time people are welcome to work on their own Arduino projects or help others designing their latest project.

Clocks

Since clocks are a “thing” now, and people are thinking about building them, the space will be open this Saturday from noon to 4PM. If anyone wants to come and build their clock or teach someone else how to do it, come on by. We have a few Ardiunos for sale and many random electrical bits around but you will need some parts and plans.

Here are some links that Jason found to get you thinking.

How Do I …. Get Started with Arduino

The class last week went very well but attendance was a little less than expected. Everyone got a great intro to Arduino programming and simple circuits. There were no slides but we used these websites during the class:

https://www.arduino.cc/

https://store.arduino.cc/

These are the official Arduino sites for downloading the IDE and buying parts that support the Arduino creators. You can buy Arduino products at other sites for a little less or you can buy arduino knock offs for a lot cheaper but the arduino.cc site supports the people creating the platform. Other sites I like to use are

https://www.sparkfun.com/

https://www.sparkfun.com/

https://www.sparkfun.com/

https://processing.org/

The Arduino IDE contains lots of examples for using the Arduino boards and if needed they include the Processing code to run on the host system.
