If you are in the Bay Area and looking for a way to learn more about arduino, make sure to check out Tam Makers’ Arduino 101 class. They write:
In case you would like to share this on your blog, we are teaching an Arduino 101 class for adults in the Bay Area this month, to show them how to build cool interactive objects with our favorite maker platform.
In this fun hands-on workshop, you will learn how to make lights blink, play sounds, and move things, as well as program your Arduino to respond to your users. Learn more here: http://www.tammakers.org/arduino-101/
This 2-part course will be at Tam Makers in Mill Valley, on Wednesdays September 14 and 21, from 6 to 9pm. The cost is $158 for 2 classes, including your own Arduino board and electronic parts, which you can take home with you (a $52 value). No prior experience necessary.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
