"codebender & Arduino: hacking the real world" (II)

on

Wednesday, July 3rd 2013, at IHU's Computer Labs from 12.00-16.00

IHUThis workshop will follow on the steps of IHU’s very successful recent workshop on Arduino. We will talk about Arduino’s capabilities, how it can be used as a microcontroller to affect and control the surrounding environment and build low-cost devices equipped with sensors and controllers with great ease. To do that, the workshop will make use of codebender: an online, easy to use, advanced IDE for Arduino, which allows the user to code fast and easily, as well as collaborate with others and share code and ideas. Would you like to build a robot, home automation, satellite or flamethrower? Then join us to learn more!
