Workshop Weekend Arduino Coming Up

I’ve been teaching this class with 7 other teachers. If you want to go from zero to Arduino hero in a weekend, this is the place to do it! Here’s the latest email with a discount at the bottom:


Registration for Workshop Weekend: Arduino is now open! Join us on October 11 and 12, 2014 as we introduce you to the Arduino and electronics world in a hands-on two day workshop!

If you haven’t heard: Arduino is an open electronics platform designed for artists, designers, and hobbyists. Here’s just a taste of what kind of stuff you can make using one:

Laser Harp: A futuristic musical harp that forgoes strings in favor of lasers!
The Inebriator: An automated cocktail mixer — it won’t ask you for a tip!
Secret Knock Door Lock: A door lock that opens only when the right knocking pattern is applied!
RC Lawn Mower: Why break your back in the heat? This lawn mower is completely autonomous!
Tweet-A-Watt: A power consumption meter that tweets your daily electricity consumption.
Check out a full range of Arduino starter projects you can build at Workshop Weekend: Arduino on our Arduino Projects page – these projects are great starting points for future exploration.

Workshop Weekend: Arduino is designed to bring you significant experience with Arduino and electronics, comprehensively leading you through all the key steps, and giving you a platform from which to explore further. You don’t need to have any experience working with Arduino, electronics, or programming to attend!

Check out the full schedule and register here:

Saturday we’ll guide you through the Arduino hardware and software. Sunday, you’ll work on your own project with our team of expert mentors at hand. Don’t worry if you don’t have a project yet – we’ll get you started with any from our project page. In the process, you’ll learn about topics like advanced programming, working with audio, motors and movement, and LCD character displays.

Use the coupon code ARDUINOEARLY3434 for $50 off admission! This code is valid through Monday, September 1st.

And please reach out to us if you have any questions at all!

I hope we’ll see you there.
