FamiLAB, Orlando's Community Lab or "Hackerspace" is offering an "Intro to Arduino" class on August 27th. Information can be found here: http://familab.org/blog/public-classes-events/
This class is for beginners, and we will (optionally) provide hardware for those looking to get started.
If you are in Orlando and already know the Arduino platform, we are looking for additional teachers / mentors for the class...send me a PM, or email us: classes at familab.org
If you want to learn more about FamiLAB, check us out at www.familab.org
or come visit the lab - we have a monthly open house, and we are also happy to coordinate a personal visit.
