1 day Short Course for Arduino

22nd Oct 2015, Thurs (9am – 5pm).
Arduino is very popular microcontroller platform, fully open source and widely used, resulting plenty of examples. This is a comprehensive hands-on class that will lead the participants from basic microcontroller theory, hardware interface, programming skill and project development using the famous Arduino board and library. In 1 day class, we will discover topics of digital I/O, analog sensor reading and serial communication (UART) which are all you need to know for a microcontroller. Check out photos from previous workshop.
The course includes Arduino hardware and some sensors for you to do wiring interface and programming in the class. Each participant bring back the starter kit after the workshop. This will be a small class where not more than 20 participants as we want to ensure everyone in the class have enough attention. Please do bring your own laptop with Windows OS 🙂
