> 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.
