micropressor lab/class Wednesday night
The Arduino is "an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on
flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists,
designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or
The Princeton:Make group is having a free class on the Arduino microcontroller
this Wednesday night on the Princeton Univ. campus. More info below.
>From a Make:Princeton announcement...
The people have spoken, and they want to learn microcontrollers. We at
MAKE:Princeton will deliver.
At our next meeting, we are offering a free class on the Arduino
microcontroller. Topics will include: Basic I/O - making lights blink,
reading buttons and knobs; motors - steppers and servos; television -
driving an NTSC signal with an Arduino. No prior programming or
electronics experience is required, we'll cover all the basics. And if
you have your own Arduino (or other microcontroller) projects to show
off, feel free to bring those too.
We're hoping for a big turn-out, so bring your friends and spread the
The meeting will happen next Wednesday, 10 December 2008 from 7--9pm
in room 039 of East Pyne Hall, on Princeton campus.
Some of you asked if there was more parking available near the
meetings. There are some metered parking spaces along Nassau street,
very close to the meeting. Also, there are some free parking spaces
along Witherspoon St. Failing both of those options, the University
has some parking lots that are free to visitors after 5pm; lot #10 on
this map may be your best bet among the PU lots.
See you there!
