Arduino boards are small physical computing platforms, consisting of a simple I/O board and an integrated development environment. Arduinos can be used to develop stand-alone interactive objects and can be connected to software on your computer as well.
The workshop starts from scratch - What is an Arduino, how does it work, how do I program it, how can I integrate it into my own projects? The day starts with a general introduction, and moves on to the hardware aspects of the Arduino, followed by a crash course on programming.
Please note that you are not going to work on your own project in this workshop, but you will learn all the basics you need to continue at home.
Artists, art students, computer scientists, hardware hackers, product developers, nerds, dancers - everyone is welcome. Some experience in programming and electronics comes in handy, but is not necessary.

What to bring?
You'll have to bring your own laptop to do your coding. We advise you to download the Arduino software and have a good look at it. Perhaps you can even start practicing a bit at home. All you need to know is on the website arduino.cc. If there is a specific sensor or actuator you would like to use during the workshop, we advise you to bring it yourself.
If you can't come to the workshop and notify us at least 48 hours before, we will give you a refund.
