In the heady enthusiasm of all the fun things we are doing at this
year's London Perl Workshop I may have missed telling you all when the
workshop will be....
London Perl Workshop: Saturday 7th November 09:00-18:30 - University of
Westminster, Cavendish Campus.
Also a few more details, once more, about the Arduino Workshop:
Sponsored Arduino Workshop <http://act.yapc.eu/lpw2014/news/1247>
This year we will be presenting a Sponsored Arduino Workshop with
part-sponsored equipment. Adrian McEwan and Hakim Cassimally will
present a 4 hour workshop (split into two parts) focussing on the
Arduino and Internet of Things.
The workshop will divide into a structured introduction, and a free
period, where you can play with more electronics or code depending on
First half: Basics of Arduino and Electronics
* connecting Arduino, basics of IDE, basics of C++ for Arduino
* breadboard basics
* wiring up a simple output (LED)
* wiring up a simple input (button, potentiometer)
* more complicated outputs - RGB LED
* connecting to a simple internet app (basic PSGI) to change colour of LED
Second half: Playtime!
Collaborate with other attendees or work by yourself on, for example:
* more electronics, wiring up a more complicated input/output from our
* more client code: play with C++ on the Arduino side
* more server code: extend the basic PSGI you connected to earlier
into a full featured Cat/Ox/Mojolicious app
* more Perl interfacing: play with Device::Firmata,
Device::Arduino::LCD, or Device::WebIO
As part of this workshop all attendees will leave with an Arduino Uno,
