Our main talk:

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.

Here are the presentation files: PDF; PowerPoint

And here’s the Arduino sketch: pythonlights.ino

And, as always:

Please note that we’re now meeting at the Makerspace, as we are more formally associated with them at this point

Detailed directions to the Makerspace:

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 info@py-cu.org (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.
