Just a friendly reminder of an upcoming class.
This post is to remind you about an upcoming class -"Processing the Danger Shield." This class takes place in a bit over a week - February 4th, 2012 from 9 AM to 5 PM right here at SparkFun Headquarters.
The Danger Shield is an Arduino shield with three slide potentiometers, a couple LEDs, some push buttons, a photocell, a temp sensor, an 8-bit shift register, a capacitive touch pad, and more. It's a really fun shield to play around with and has a lot of potential uses.
In this class, we'll explore how to use the Danger Shield as an interface for a computer program. You'll learn the basics necessary to create graphical interfaces, data logging visualizations, games and animations using Processing. Processing is based on Java, so when you're done you'll know some useful programming basics. Go to the class listing to sign up! Hope to see you there!
