Intermediate Arduino Course – 18 October

0

This class is for anyone who understands the basics of the Arduino Single Board Microcontroller and wants to take their projects to the next level.   You will learn to write sketches that fully take advantage of the capabilities of the Arduino.  You will also learn new ways make your Arduino communicate with other devices.

As part of the course, you will build an Arduino weather station with temperature, humidity and pressure readings. Data get saved to a SD card and will also be displayed in real time on a LCD screen. A RTC will keep track of date and time.

Software Freedom Day 2014 – Tsakane

A bunch of us celebrated Software Freedom Day this year at a very special school, African School For Excellence in Tsakane (near Brakpan).  The day was a tremendous success, with 106 kids attending (on a Saturday!!) our technology roadshow.
