Arduino Workshop: The Man with the Soldering Gun

During our last Labs Friday, Andrew Sliwinski led an Arduino workshop at the CfA office.

From blinking lights (Arduino’s version of “Hello world”) to wireless air climate sensors, there was something to learn for beginners and experts alike. It was a great time of enjoyment and feeling like a kid again. After a little bit of hacking on my own part, I put together a quick James Bond-inspired music video to capture the event.
