Arduino is an open source development platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It is intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.
Arduino can sense the environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators. The boards can be built by hand or purchased preassembled ; the software can be downloaded for free. The hardware reference designs (CAD files) are available under an open-source license, you are free to adapt them to your needs.
During this talk you will get a first impression of what you can do with Arduino and how easy it is to program. We will demonstrate the user interface by example : first some simple "Hello World" code, then an example of how to program and monitor a light sensor. We will discuss some projects and showcase some of the kits that you can assemble in the soldering workshop.
