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 
your interests.

      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
    goodie bag
  * 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, 
Ethernet Shield and various small components. The cost of these 
components is close to £60 per kit; but thanks to generous sponsorship 
the attendees who sign up to this will only be charged £25 per person.
