It's been a few years since our last Arduino workshop. But more and more people discover this little miracle board, and they don't know exactly how to use it. That's where we come in! In this workshop you'll learn all the basics.

Arduino boards are small physical computing platforms, consisting of a simple I/O board and an integrated development environment. Arduino’s can be used to develop stand-alone interactive objects or can be connected to software on your computer.

In this workshop you start from scratch. What is an Arduino, how does it work, how do I program it and how can I integrate it in my work and projects? The day starts with a general introduction. Then we'll look at the hardware aspects of the Arduino, followed by a crash course of programming.

  • Please note that you are not going to work on your own project in this workshop, but you will get all the basics you need to continue at home.

For who?

Artists, art students, computer scientists, hardware hackers, product developers, nerds, dancers - everyone is welcome. However, note that some technical affinity is handy. Some experience in programming and electronics will come in handy specifically in soldering and java, but is not strictly necessary.
