I’ll be giving a webcast Wednesday, June 16 at 10am Pacific to teach the basics of Arduino. To go along with that, we’ve set up a 15% discounts off of three of our Maker Shed Arduino kits. If you’ve never picked up Arduino before this is a great time to start.
In this webcast, Brian Jepson will introduce the basics of Arduino, the open source electronics prototyping platform. You’ll learn what Arduino is, where to get one, and how to connect electronic components to it. You’ll also learn how to write simple programs for Arduino. When you’re done, you’ll be ready to learn more, make more, and have fun prototyping.
If you’ve got an Arduino, an LED, a pushbutton, and some hookup wire, you have most of what you need to follow along with this webcast.
But if you’d like to keep going beyond the basics, we suggest one of the following kits from our own Maker Shed. We’ve lined up a discount code you can use which will give you 15% off any of these kits until June 21, 2010:
Getting Started With Arduino kit (includes a copy of the book Getting Started with Arduino!)
Arduino Projects Pack
Advanced Arduino Starter Kit (includes a copy of the book Making Things Talk!)
Webcast: First Steps with Arduino (registration and more information, including discount codes and links for ordering the kits)
