Sponsored Arduino Workshop

22/09/14 09:36 by Mark Keating (‎mdk‎)

It is our pleasure to announce that this year we will be presenting a Sponsored Arduino Workshop with part-sponsored equipment. Adrian McEwan and Hakim Cassimally will present a 4 hour workshop (split into two parts) focussing on the Arduino and Internet of Things.

The workshop will divide into a structured introduction, and a free period, where you can play with more electronics or code depending on your interests.

First half: Basics of Arduino and Electronics

  • connecting Arduino, basics of IDE, basics of C++ for Arduino
  • breadboard basics
  • wiring up a simple output (LED)
  • wiring up a simple input (button, potentiometer)
  • more complicated outputs - RGB LED
  • connecting to a simple internet app (basic PSGI) to change colour of LED

Second half: Playtime!

Collaborate with other attendees or work by yourself on, for example:

  • more electronics, wiring up a more complicated input/output from our goodie bag
  • more client code: play with C++ on the Arduino side
  • more server code: extend the basic PSGI you connected to earlier into a full featured Cat/Ox/Mojolicious app
  • more Perl interfacing: play with Device::Firmata, Device::Arduino::LCD, or Device::WebIO

As part of this workshop all attendees will leave with an Arduino Uno, Ethernet Shield and various small components. The cost of these components is close to £60 per kit; but thanks to generous sponsorship the attendees who sign up to this will only be charged £25 per person.

To sign up to this you must contact Mark Keating at Email Mark or Claire Jackson Email Claire and confirm your participation. They will give you a link of how to pay. Payment *must* be in advance and numbers will be limited to 15 persons. We recommend you sign up early.

More details will be announced.

The speakers have been generously sponsored by the Enlightened Perl Organisation.
