An Arduino workshop in progress
A working Arduino project!

Information for our introductory workshops on Arduinos

This course will be split into two days. Day 1 for the first half will be a brief introduction to programming in C. After lunch we will start using the Arduino. Day 2 will be moving onto further projects with the Arduino.

If you already have experience programming then you only need to turn up after lunch on Day 1 if you wish. Members of the London Hackspace get a further discount. You can become a member of the LHS before the workshop and obtain the discount.

The cost of the course also includes a full Arduino Uno Starter Kit (Supplied by Earthshine Electronics).

Note that experience in programming will be expected so if you do not have that please ensure you attend the whole of Day 1.

Both courses will be given by Michael McRoberts, author of the book "Beginning Arduino"


Tickets

There are 10 places available on the course, the costs are:

Members/Non-Members £100/£120

Provisional Timetable

Saturday 17th May

Introduction to Programming and Arduino

This will be an introduction to programming, specifically the C programming language.

C is a ubiquitous and versatile language, used for programming PCs and micro-controllers. The aim of this day is to give you a basic understanding of programming and C, specifically the course will prepare you for the Arduino course after lunch.

After lunch we will dive right into the Arduino projects.

Sunday 17th May

Continuing adventures with an Arduino

A full day dedicated to learning how the Arduino works and how to code for it as well as basic electronics theory, includes an Arduino Uno starter kit worth £49.99 which includes an Arduino Uno and all the components necessary for the course.

Through the day you will learn about the features of the Arduino platform, and construct a variety of fun and interesting projects to examine the basics of it's operation.

Note. Programming experience will be assumed. If have no programming experience or are unsure of programming in C, please attend the "Introduction to Programming and C" which will be held on the Saturday morning.

For who?

Anyone! Aimed at complete beginners in both programming and electronics.

By who?

Notes

Refreshments will be provided but please bring food for lunch. There are numerous cafes nearby if you want to eat out.
