WHO CAN ATTEND?
This class is designed for computing and software enthusiasts. If you've purchased from Little Bird Electronics before, you're almost certainly the right fit. You don't need to know how to program, but it will help. The workshop should equip you with the basics to start building projects based on Arduino. In addition to your workshop kit you will also need to bring: A laptop (with Wi-Fi) running Windows or Mac OS X. (IMPORTANT: You will need admin privileges on this machine!) Your laptop's power supply and a power-strip (it's amazing how quickly we go through power points). Some money for food or a packed lunch
