ForwardJS – Ottawa – April 7th, 2017
CAMP Festival – Calgary – September 26th, 2016
FITC – Toronto – April 16th, 2016
A typical workshop day is a mixture of short lectures, demonstrations and hands-on fun. I tend to keep the number of attendees to 16 or fewer so participants have a highly participatory and interactive experience. Bring your laptop and I will bring all the cool gagdets! For larger groups (up to 25), I can be accompanied by a very knowledgeable assistant.
Physical Computing for Web Developers
Web developers have most of the knowledge and skills necessary to get into physical computing. The only things missing are a bit of software knowledge (NW.js & Johnny-Five) and a bit of hardware knowledge (microcontrollers & sensors). This is what this workshop will provide. In essence, the goal is to show web developers a cheap and easy path for them to get into physical computing.
Bonus: attendees get to keep all the workshop hardware so they can continue to experiment on their own. This starter kit includes an Arduino-compatible microcontroller, distance sensor, stepper & servo motors, buttons, joystick, knob, breadboard, LEDs wires and more (60$ value).
