Arduino + IDEO: Make Some Noise Workshop in New York #arduino
Just announced, check out this great free opportunity for just 15 people to attend a beginners Arduino class organized by Arduino’s Massimo Banzi and a friend from IDEO: Make Some Noise Workshop in New York:
Arduino and IDEO New York organize a one day beginners workshop on Arduino.
We’re going to get you started with Arduino and we’ll make some noise with it.
You need to bring a laptop, your own arduino (Arduino Uno preferably), usb cable, a breadboard and some parts.
We’ll setup Arduino on your laptop, teach you the basics of how to create interactive objects with it by building circuits that make noises (and maybe even music, that depends on you 🙂 )
No previous knowledge of programming or electronics required.

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.
