A Crash Course in Physical Computing*
Bring your favorite microcontroller board and a breadboard and learn how to make lights blink and buzzers buzz from various inputs.
Maybe you’ve bought an Arduino, been gifted a TI Stellaris, or even taken the Arduino Cult Induction and wondered, “How the heck do I use this thing?!” Cameron will show you what those goofy schematics mean and how you can translate these to a breadboard to prototype your project quickly. You will learn how to make your microcontroller interact with its surroundings in useful ways.
I am a DJ at houseofsound.org and regularly co-teach the Arduino Cult Induction. Previously I was a co-host and production assistant for Gitmo Nation Roundtable, a political podcast that ran for two years.
