Intro to Arduino class, July 16 2011

Maui Makers is proud to announce our first Arduino Class and our first Visiting Instructor!
David Stillman, of Spark Fun Electronics, is going to be on island for most of the month of July. He has offered to teach a class using the Spark Fun Inventors Kit (SIK), a nicely packaged Arduino kit. Maui Makers has secured 15 of these kits. We are offering 10 for sale with the class, and will be holding 5 in reserve for teaching the intro to people who cant afford to buy their own kits at present.

For those who don’t know, the Arduino is “an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.” (from Arduino.cc website)

The SIK packages an Arduino Uno, solderless breadboard, 36 page instructional booklet, 12 circuit overlays, LEDs, a servo, a motor, buttons, switches, sensors, buzzer, etc. The class will get you started using the Arduino, working us through a couple experiments. No soldering or programming experience is required. You will need to bring your own laptop (windows, mac or linux) to work through the exercises.

We will be having follow-up meetings for attendees with various levels of experience.

For details and signup, see the class web page.

About Jerry

Previously 30+ yrs as software engineer in bleeding edge tech such as UNIX(1978+), Computer Animation, Multimedia, Virtual Reality, Games, Location Based Entertainment, Military C4I, DARPA Research, etc. Thought FabLab was great new thing, so learned machine shop tech and moved to Maui to start one.
