Just announced, check out this great free opportunity for just 15 people to attend a beginners Arduino class organized by Arduino’s Massimo Banzi and a friend from IDEO: Make Some Noise Workshop in New York:
Arduino and IDEO New York organize a one day beginners workshop on Arduino.
We’re going to get you started with Arduino and we’ll make some noise with it.
You need to bring a laptop, your own arduino (Arduino Uno preferably), usb cable, a breadboard and some parts.
We’ll setup Arduino on your laptop, teach you the basics of how to create interactive objects with it by building circuits that make noises (and maybe even music, that depends on you )
No previous knowledge of programming or electronics required.
If you don’t have an Arduino you can get one online at Adafruit or in any RadioShack in town.
The Getting Started with Arduino kit from Make or the ARDX starter Kit from Adafruit are a good way to get most of the basic parts in one go.
