After a year and a half touring the country, Thom Shannon and I are bringing Howduino back to Liverpool - on the weekend of the 20th/21st November we'll be taking over the old Rapid paint store in the centre of Liverpool (thanks to Sound Network's part in the Cooperative strand of the Biennial).
It's a free, two day workshop/hackday about connecting the internet to the real world, breathing life into inanimate objects and creating new ways to interact with things. It's for artists, programmers, designers, hobbyists and anyone else interested in robotics, technology, communication and interaction.
You don't need to know anything about electronics, hardware or Arduinos to come along, we'll be running an intro session at the start to get you up and running. Likewise, if you just want to bring your latest project along to work on in the company of some like-minded individuals, that's great.
Tickets will be released tomorrow morning at 10am UK time, visit http://www.howduino.com

If you want to get an idea of the sort of fun that happens at a Howduino, have a look at my write-up of the one we ran in Newcastle in the summer - http://www.mcqn.com/weblog/howduino_ncl
