think|haus will be presenting a workshop on April 26th about the Arduino and interfacing to the real world. It’s really just an introduction to the whole Arduino ecosystem. Future workshops will get more into the technical details of the electronics side of Arduino interfacing. Ultimately, it should all lead to a final set of workshops where the participants learn to design and build an entire embedded system and solder it to a custom printed circuit board. Details of the first
workshop are below.
When: Saturday April 26, 2014 10am-4pm SECOND DATE ADDED: Sunday April 27, 2014 10am-4pm
