FCW held an “Arduino for Beginners” class on Saturday, November 14 to a packed classroom. Sixteen participants used the new computers and Arduino trainer boards to become familiar with the popular embedded processor platform. Rich was the instructor and guided them through the basics of the Auduino, use of the IDE and an introduction to the C language variant used. The participants were able to see how to use LED’s, an RC servo, an audible buzzer, and an ultrasonic distance sensor in “hands-on” experiments.
There were additional people on a waiting list for this class so a repeat of this class has been scheduled for December 19, from 11AM-3PM.
