Want your letterbox to email you whenever the postman has been? Needa clock to show you where your loved ones are? Or a glowing multi-coloured ambient orb to show your energy usage? This course will get you started on the road to realising your own Internet-connected projects.
What you need to be familiar with
You’ll need to know how to use your computer, edit files, and save them.
A familiarity with Arduino is also essential – we won’t be covering the Arduino basics. If you haven’t worked with Arduino before then you should take the Beginners guide to Arduino and Physical Computing course first.
Software and costs
All software is freely available and copies will be distributed with the course materials on the day.
We will be using the Arduino IDE, version 0021, which can be downloaded from http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software for all platforms.
