On December 12th FUBAR Labs member Keith Chester will be giving an AVR Mico Controller class. You will receive all the tools and training you need to work directly with micro controllers. No matter the project – from interactive art to physical computing to robotics – the use of micro controllers can vastly expand the power and interactivity of your project.
By mastering the basics of the popular AVR micro controller (which is used in popular platforms such as the open source Arduino platform) you can put a lot of power into your project for less than a few dollars!
The class comes with all the hardware you need to begin developing your own micro controller projects and several sensors, allowing you to make real-world interactive projects immediately after the course is done!
The class will last three hours.
Included in the kit:
- USBtinyISP (Assembled)
- Power Supply
- Temperature Sensor
- IR Range Finder
- Tiltball Switch
So, you’ll be going home with roughly $60 in parts.. all yours for the hacking.
Prior knowledge of C programming is encouraged – some programming background required. If you know Java or Wiring (Arduino programming language) then the transition to C should not be too difficult.
A laptop is required to take the course.
(Linux, Windows, and Mac can all be used)
