Los Angeles

What's on the agenda for Saturday.

This post was made to the blog for 8-bit lab: Intermediate Arduino / physical computing

We're for sure covering the following hardware: transistors, diodes, relays, shift registers, and h-bridge motor drivers. Once you've learned these things, you should be able to control and manipulate quite a few devices in the real world.


This class will be more of a hardware interfacing class than basic coding class. 


We'll try to incorporate machine-to-machine communications with the above projects. This will use the Serial object.


I'll bring in a few Arduino Shields to play with as well and we'll briefly cover expanding Arduino's functionality with importing libraries. (This depends more on everybody's current Arudino language skills.)

Any day OTHER than Wednesday....

What you'll need for class.

I highly recommend that you bring a laptop to class. While you can potentially look over somebody's shoulder, you're not going to learn as much as if you have your own laptop. I don't want to say it's absolutely required that you bring your own, but it pretty much is.


Please pre-install the Arduino software on your machine. We'll be using the current version, 0021:


It's 75MB, so if you wait until class to download and install, you'll just be wasting a lot of your time and the class's time.


We'll cover getting the drivers installed in class, but please, please, please take the time to pre-download the main software package before arriving.
