I'm looking for responses to see who is interested in attending a
workshop focused on microcontrollers.
I didn't think I would be starting on the microcontroller workshop
until the SBC workshop was done, but it looks like I found a winner
for the hardware for this one already, so I might as well get things
AVR Butterfly - http://www.atmel.com/dyn/products/tools_card.asp?tool_id=3146
More info at http://www.atmel.com/dyn/resources/prod_documents/doc4271.pdf
The cost for the hardware so far is $22.50 + shipping + tax (right
now, anyway) but you will need a serial port (usb->serial is fine) and
a computer (might need to be either Linux or Windows, not sure yet,)
(unless we can get booked into a computer lab to do the workshop.)
Minimal programming experience is required. You should know how
compiling code works, and not balk at a language you haven't seen
before (might end up doing some ASM, otherwise it will be C.)
Introduction to microcontrollers. Show how the hardware is organized,
and how to write software to interact with the hardware.
Workshop date and time:
Not decided yet. Probably on a weekend in January or February. More
details as the date gets closer.
List of features at:
--- how microcontrollers work
--- what kind of things they can do (DIO/ADC/etc.)
--- much of the contents of the users guide
--- minimal changes to the existing code
--- maybe write new code? ideas?
