zing ting

Arduino Electronics Workshop

18 September 2010 London

Zing ting is a one day  instructor-led hands-on workshop is for designers,artists and anyone else who wants to learn how to create physical interaction devices using the arduino microcontroller in the framework  of Fritzing. No prior  knowledge of arduino or electronics is necessary  as you will be taught  from scratch.

When, Where & who?

When and Where?

The workshop is on Saturday 18 September 2010, From 11.30am till 5pm on the 5th floor meeting room pod at Peckham library

Who Can attend?

Anyone with an interest or would like to develop an interest in physical   computing, arduino and the Fritzing framework. You don't need prior   knowledge of electronics just bags of enthusiasm.

What you'll need to bring

A laptop, macbook, netbook with administrator password.

Workshop Leader

Stefan Hermann

Stefan  tutors in physical computing at the the Interaction Design Lab at the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam, Germany. He is also the author of a German language Arduino tutorial.

About Fritzing

Fritzing is an open-source initiative to support designers and artists to take the step from physical prototyping to actual product. We are aiming to create software in the spirit of Processing and Arduino, that allows the designer/artist/researcher/hobbyist to document their Arduino-based prototype and create a PCB layout for manufacturing. The complimenting website helps to share and discuss drafts and experiences as well as to reduce manufacturing costs.
