‘Bot Software

A fortnightly class looking at how to connect an assortment of “gadgets” and robotic components to little computers. Each day is a tutorial followed by workshop time.

We will use both Raspberry Pi and Arduino.

Aim: something working each fortnight. Instructions and guidance on

  • how that gadget really works
  • precisely how to connect to Raspberry Pi or to Arduino
  • a working “script” of software
  • some insight on how the software works, and how you could tinker with it yourself
