Intro to sensor journalism with arduinos

  • Event: 2016 CAR Conference
  • Speaker: Linda Sandvik of OpenNews
  • Date/Time: Thursday, Mar. 10 at 2:15pm
  • Location: Matchless
  • Audio file: No audio file available.

Learn how to make simple, interactive projects using Arduino hardware. We'll walk through a couple of easy projects to give you a feel for what's possible and show a few examples of what other news organisations have used it for. We'll have a few Arduinos on hand to share but you can bring your own. We won't be soldering and no previous coding experience required. Laptops are provided.

Open to anyone who likes to play and make things blink.
