The Open Source Library – Arduino & Other Open Source Hardware

Date(s) - 10/08/2014
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm



We are living in a maker revolution; where people are building solutions to their own problems. Open Source options allow for makers to prototype and build their new technology ideas; all using an open source framework and platform; with an entire community backing and supporting open source projects. Arduino is a very common open source microcontroller; think of it as a miniature computer. You can build everything from robots to interactive displays; all through affordable and inexpensive hardware solutions. This session will discuss the history of open source hardware, arduinos, and how they play in libraries; as a way to provide solutions to problems. We will also explore great programming ideas for patrons.
