The Arduino lets us add intelligence to everyday objects, or create new, never imagined smart-artefacts. It gives us power by applying small computer programs to respond to people, and our environment. This workshop is intended for people who are computer literate, but who have never programmed before.
The first part will give hands on experience of programming and building simple electronics; covering concepts of digital input and output, analogue input, pseudo-analogue output. We'll build several 'mini-projects' (including DIY LED torch, buzz and hum cheesy tunes, light- and touch-responsive sensors), which let you get familiar with electronics and programming in digestible pieces.
By the end of the workshop, you'll have experienced core micro-controller and electronics concepts. You will have programmed and built electronics which are the basis of many artefacts, from works of kinetic art to many of the every-day things around you.
