London Hackspace will be holding an Arduino Course over the weekend of 19th/20th February 2011:
Saturday 19th February
Introduction to Programming and C
This will be an introduction to programming, specifically the C programming language.
C is a ubiquitous and versatile language, used for programming PCs and micro-controllers. The aim of this course is to give you a basic understanding of programming and C, specifically the course will prepare you for the Arduino course the next day.
Sunday 20th February
Introduction to Arduino and basic electronics
A full day dedicated to learning how the Arduino works, includes an Arduino Uno starter kit worth £49.99.
Through the day you will learn about the features of the Arduino platform, and construct a variety of fun and interesting projects to examine the basics of it's operation.
Note. Programming experience will be assumed. If have no programming experience or are unsure of programming in C, please attend the "Introduction to Programming and C" which will be held on the Saturday. A discount is available to those who book a place on both courses at the same time.
This course will be split into two self contained courses. There will be one specifically for the C programming language, and another for the Arduino platform.
If have no experience of programming or electronics then you can book both days at a discount. Members of the London Hackspace get a further discount. You can become a member of the LHS before the workshop and obtain the discount.
The cost of the Arduino Course (Day 2) also includes a full Arduino Uno Starter Kit.
Be advised that Day 2 of the course will assume programming experience in C so if you don't have that, please book Day 1.
Only 10 spaces are available so act fast: http://wiki.hackspace.org.uk/wiki/Workshops/Arduino_for_beginners_3
