Early Bird Special: The first 15 people to register can receive $25 off
their ticket by using the code EARLY-BIRD-MELBOURNE at the checkout. We will be strictly limiting this course to 30 people so get in whilst you can.
Little Bird Electronics is proud to announce our second Arduino Workshop in Melbourne.
University of Sydney Lecturer Justin Clayden, and Little Bird's Marcus Schappi will be our workshop trainers.
All participants get to design and build their own Arduino project.

What and why?
Arduino boards are small physical computing platforms, consisting of a simple I/O board and an integrated development environment. Arduino's can be used to develop stand-alone interactive objects or can be connected to software on your computer.
In this workshop we will have a look at the Arduino Diecimila, and also look at programming possibilities within Arduino.
More information about Arduino can be found on the Arduino website, http://arduino.cc.

In this one day intensive workshop you'll learn the lay-out of the Arduino board, you'll learn how to connect other hardware to it, and you'll learn the basic programming skills needed for building your own Arduino application. All participants design and start their own Arduino project.

We will supply all materials required for the Workshop, but feel free to bring parts from your own projects which you need help with.

Justin Clayden and Marcus Schappi.

Target Group:
Art students, Computer scientists, hardware hackers, fabric experts, product developers, nerds, dancers - everyone is welcome.
? Some technical affinity is required. Some experience in programming and electronics will is useful, specifically in soldering and java, but is not strictly necessary.
? Your own Laptop Running Windows XP - Vista, Mac OS X 10.3-5, or Linux will be required.
