Dorkbot Workshop -- Arduino Cult Induction

417 SE 11th Ave
Portland, OR 97214, US (map)



During this quarter's induction we are going to try something different.

We are going to build a complete arduino compatible board made entirely of through hole components. Called the TAD (for Through hole Arduino compatible Design) The board uses the same footprint as the arduino but does not require any surface mount components. This workshop will be lite on lecture and heavy on putting the thing together so be prepared to solder.

What: This is a an opportunity for 13 people to build their own TAD , A complete microprocessor based development environment which is very popular with artists and other creative people. Suspect Devices has put together a kit which takes the surface mount out of the arduino. This seminar is to walk you through putting yours together and programming it

Where: ADX -- SE 11th between Oak and Stark
