If you want to take the class but didn’t get in, send an email
and I’ll schedule another one soon.
It’s on – an Introduction to Arduino Class
Where: Antitronics – Flying Monkey Arts Center
When: Saturday, October 3rd 4:30 – 7:00
Cost: $30 (for the things you get to keep)
Let me know in advance if you will be there.
You need to bring your laptop, let me know which O.S. you run.
I have in my hot little hands a stack of Arduino Duemilanove boards. For your $30 you will get one of those, a USB cable, a 9V battery clip with a plug, a couple of LEDs and resistors. and a potentiometer. I will not supply a 9V battery. You won’t need one for class – you only need one later if you want to run your project disconnected from your computer.
The goals will be:
1. To get the arduino software environment installed
2. To demonstrate the structure of a basic arduino application
3. To show how to read information from the real world
4. To control some simple outputs, including PWM (and an explanation of what the heck PWM is anyway).
We will not go into deep details of the AVR processor or any other technical aspects of the arduino and how it works — this is sort of an appliance operator’s view.

The Software: http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software
You are invited to go ahead and install the software before the class if you are comfortable with that. If you want the hardware early, just pay me and it’s yours. I should have the remainder of the items (battery clips) in by next week.
Registration is limited since this is the first class. I don’t want to end up overloaded.

I’ve ordered a dozen arduino Duemilanove boards in assorted colors, for the upcoming Intro to arduino class at the space. Due to my travel it looks like the date will be Saturday, Oct 3rd at 5:00 PM or so. Final details and pricing will be settled soon –
Retail price for the Arduino boards is $30 – what I’d like to be able to do is charge the $30 and throw in some resistors and LEDs, a potentiometer, a USB A->B cable, and a nine volt battery clip with the power connector for the arduino. This will let everyone leave with something that they can play with later. If you want to bring your own, that’s fine. The class is free.
