Schuyler St. Leger presented an “Arduino 101” session at the Desert Code Camp software developer conference, held in Arizona last weekend. A 12-year-old maker and member of HeatSync Labs Makerspace in Mesa, AZ, Schuyler is a quite simply a prodigy. Schuyler does a remarkably good job explaining Arduino and walking through the basics. His pacing is perfect and he speaks so clearly and confidently. I am amazed by Schuyler and his own presence as a teacher before an audience of adults.

A copy of the presentation slides are here.

Schuyler’s self-styled Twitter handle is: @DocProfSky. Schuyler is definitely worth following.
