Steve Granda will demo communicating with an Arduino, a simple microcontroller popular with hobbyists, using Python. This one of a series of demo-y talks related to using Python to communicate with hardware.
And here’s the Arduino sketch: pythonlights.ino
Please note that we’re now meeting at the Makerspace, as we are more formally associated with them at this point
The Makerspace is located in the Urbana-Champaign Independent Media Center (basement), 202 S. Broadway Ave., Urbana (same building as the post office that’s right by Lincoln Square Mall)
The Makerspace is a bit of a challenge to find, but we’ll have signs up. We’ll also be keeping an eye on this mailing list and email@example.com (and our Meetup messages and our Facebook group and all the other places…) so contact us if you find the building but can’t find the room.
