Open Source Software and Hardware (Arduino)
Monday, 31st March 2014
This event is fully booked or has passed.
CPUs that cost thousands a decade ago now cost just a few dollars. The Arduino platform has lowered barriers to entry so that people with minimal technical knowledge can create special purpose computers capable of changing the world.
Open Source Hardware is in autonomous drones, 3D printers, DNA replicators, satellites, city-wide sensor networks, smart houses and wearable computers. In this talk Justin McLean will cover:
- The basics of the open source Arduino software and hardware platform.
- How the platform has progressed over the last few years
- The advantages of open source hardware.
- How to write program/sketches in it?s IDE.
- Why it can be used to simply and quickly create working prototypes.
There will be some live demos and time for questions and answers.
