Arduino 101 – Learn to Blink

Tutorial Description:

This is a friendly introductory tutorial  to programming for the Arduino platform micro-controllers.  Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software.  It’s intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments. Arduino can sense the environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators.

  • Setting up the Arduino environment.
  • Digital Inputs and Outputs.
  • Analog Inputs
  • Basic Arduino functionality.

When you leave, we hope you have enough knowledge to go on and start your own programs.

  1. Just getting into Arduino myself. Shame this on on Tues nights as I’m in college but I’ll happily publicise this for you. Any plans to run an Arduino workshop at the weekends? I’d love something like that.

  2. Pete I am doing another Arduino Workshop the week after in DCU but it will be a weekday again. Therefore it will be a while until I do another one. If there is demand I will do a day long workshop on the weekend. Sign up to the mailing list, I will post anything there.
