Introduction to Arduino @ Open Tech School - Berlin (6 Dec 2012)

911

Published on

A 15 mins introduction to the most popular electronic prototyping platform, Arduino!

The talk took place at Beginners Meetup #5 (http://www.meetup.com/opentechschool-berlin/events/93018322/) by Open Tech School Berlin on 6 Dec 2012

# An introduction to Arduino: the 5 Ws + 1 – Alessandro Contini

We will try to answer to the following questions: What is it? Who did that? When? Where? Why is it like that? …and, What can I do with it?

In a time when everyone is talking about makers, digital fabrication, 3D printing, laser cutting, DIY and so on, let's go back and see where everything began. Ok, not EVERYTHING actually, but let's say where everything took a big step forward. We'll also have a hands-on demo that you can't miss, so – less talk, more rock!
