    LilyPad Arduino Programming

    Saturday May 25th 11-18:00, Open Tech School workshop at Coop Berlin

    This workshop is more of a tutoring session for up to 3 participants per tutor and aims to be a super quick and basic introduction to programming an arduino lilypad, as well as personalized help building specific projects or getting started.

    Sign-up here >> http://www.meetup.com/opentechschool-berlin/events/119847842/




    Participants must bring their own materials:

    If you are not sure what of the following materials to buy, please email me with any questions you have. If you are not able to purchase all the materials in time for the workshop, some of them can be provided, so no worries about getting everything on the list!

    Topics to be covered in workshop:

    INTRO

    – what is Arduino
    – what you can do with it (show examples)
    – why they created it + when + where
    – what is physical computing
    – sensors VS actuators (look around yourself)
    – what is Arduino again? (hardware + software + community)

    SET-UP

    Software installation, Arduino IDE, Fritzing, drivers

    LILYPAD vs. ARDUINO

    HELLO WORLD

    (blink: LED, resistor 220 Ohm, alligator clips)
    A) sketch structure: setup() loop()
    B) variables
    C) functions (online reference)

    PWM

    (fade: breadboard, jumpers, alligator clips)
    A) cinema analogy (make images move)
    B) play with delay (square wave > PWM)
    C) ‘for’ cycle and AnalogWrite

    AUDIO

    (tone: speaker)
    A) bike wheel analogy –> frequency
    B) play with delay –> high/low frequencies
    C) tone library

    DIGITAL IN

    (button pressed: two wires or alligator clips/fabric button)
    A) digitalRead
    B) pull-up resistor (external, internal/code)
    C) serial monitor
    D) add a visual feedback: LED

    ANALOG IN

    (light theramin: LDR, potentiometer/fabric sensor)
    A) analogRead
    B) value mapping
    C) add a visual feedback: LED or Servo
