What is a microcontroller?
Microcontrollers are tiny computers that you can use to build hundreds of hardware projects.
Some of examples of things you could (eventually) make:
- A MIDI instrument
- An internet connected sensor
- An LED decoration
- A remote control car
Come learn about different types of microcontroller including Arudino, Raspberry Pi Pico, ESP32, ATTiny85. Learn how to get started writing your first program for a microcontroller and how to avoid some of the common problems.
What will I learn?
Last time we tried making programs for the raspberry pi pico. This event focuses on programming the Attiny85, a very small 8-bit microcontroller. After the talk you can try building something with it or work on your own electronics projects.
Who is this for?
Everyone is welcome. No experience of microcontrollers or hardware is necessary! We will begin from the very basics. Some experience with basic programming will definitely help, but microcontroller programs can be very simple.
What should I bring?
A computer or tablet will be helpful for researching, taking notes and following along. Feel free to bring along your own microcontrollers and hardware to work on!
The event's main language is English, but questions and support can be in English or Japanese.
- 19:00 How to Program the Attiny85, hands on demonstration
- 19:30 Hacking time - work on your own projects and get help from others
- 21:00 End
