'''1.5 or 3 hour workshops - feel free to sign up'''
* '''Jason Griffey, Hacking on Hardware (3 hours): '''  Come and join me for an afternoon filled with circuits and silicon! We'll be learning the basics of breadboards and simple circuits, and building will deconstruct and then rebuild our own input/output systems with Arduino. Learn the basics of programming to the Arduino...hardware will be provided, although you will need your own laptop (or are comfortable team learning with someone else). The goal of the workshop will be to give you enough knowledge that you can build a simple sensor to measure something in your environment (noise, temperature, light, moisture) and to make you more comfortable with working with hardware. This session is designed for beginners who do not have experience with circuits, breadboards, Arduino, or other aspects of hardware hacking. If you are planning to attend this hardware hacking afternoon, you will need to have install a couple of things before you arrive to save time. Please download and install both the Arduino IDE 1.0.5 installedand the FTDI Drivers (serial drives for the Sparkfun Redboard), linked below. The These will allow your laptop to communicate with the board. '''Arduino IDE can be downloaded from '''*[ 1.0.5]'''FTDI Drivers'''*[ Windows]*[ Mac]*[ Linux]
