 Here is link to the slides from  Introduction to Microcontrollers

Microcontroller Crash Course_730

This class will be an introduction to microcontrollers using the Arduino. The class assumes no prior experience with microcontrollers or programming. This hands on class will provide you with the skills necessary to create your own projects with the Arduino. The class will cover the basics of what microcontrollers are and how they can be used, writing simple programs, using peripherals such as LEDs and timers and ways to structure your code to solve common problems.

Required Equipment:

The course will require you to bring an Arduino microcontroller module. I will be using the Arduino Uno as the example. This board can be purchased online or at Radioshack. You may also use a different Arduino board provided it has  a built in programmer. If you choose to buy a kit, please assemble it prior to the class. Please also bring a laptop.

Classes will take place at the CCCC Hyannis Center. Please RSVP in advance, as space is limited
