I am making an Arduino course for hipsters, instead of looking at what you learn, I am going to concentrate in what people think about themselves, establish an indie relationship to the world of electronics, portratit electrons as Emo-children, help the bohemian soul to embrace complex concepts that go beyond drinking wine while listening to Coldplay … and all of this while only wearing B&W clothes.
This is the agenda for the course that will take place on April 28th at STPLN, in Malmo, Sweden.
Oh man! The AVR Freaks are gonna plotz!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
