Learn to program an Arduino and see that even you can become a maker!
Attention: The instruction language for this workshop will be English
Together with the IEEE TU-Chemnitz Student Branch, the SAXEED Ideenwerkstatt will be holding an introductory course to present the fundamentals necessary to get your projects live. The workshop will heavily rely on hands-on projects that will be completed during the exercises. Beginning with a brief overview of the Arduino platform, the first practical unit shows how to handle different interfaces such as switches and buzzers to display signals and codes with LEDs. In the second exercise, participants will learn how to use serial displays to customize their projects using temperature and pressure sensors as inputs. To round it off, an integration of the Python programming suite will provide enough knowledge to be able to keep learning and master increasingly complex projects.
For this course there is no pre-registration. The maximum number of participants is set at 30 and seating will be available on a first come first serve basis. The workshop is being offered free of charge, but since this is a practice-based workshop, an Arduino programming kit is required to participate. The IEEE student branch is offering the materials for use during the course at a 5€ daily rental fee. Alternatively participants also have the opportunity to provide their own with most Arduino Starter kits available through online retailers for around 50€.
Participants are also required to bring their own laptop. The software used is available direct from www.arduino.cc as a free download.
