Golan shared with us some thoughts after the event:
Thank you soooo much for your terrific and generous support last month for our Raspberry Pi + OpenFrameworks workshop. About 40 people learned how to program RPi’s over the weekend. We’re still sorting through the documentation but are pleased to share some photos from the event.
“Creative Coding on the RaspberryPi with openFrameworks” was a workshop held at the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry, 11-13 October 2013. Organized with support from Adafruit, the CMU College of Fine Arts, the CMU Robotics Institute, and the CMU School of Art.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
