—–Making Embedded Software with Command Line Tools—–

Jim Prior will give a presentation on writing programs for
Arduino UNO R3 boards using command lines tools instead of an
Integrated Development Environment (IDE).

Arduino’s greatest achievement has been making it possible for
non-technical people to write embedded code. Their IDE is an
important part of that. The Arduino IDE makes things easier for
beginners but can get in the way of experienced embedded software
developers. Using command line tools gives one complete control
and flexibility over writing software for Arduino UNO R3 boards.
Jim Prior will show how a simple program would be done with the
Arduino IDE and with command lines tools.

CARPE is a group of people who love to play around with hardware. From automated chicken coops to robot safe cracking to thermal imaging, we love it all. Join us to tinker, learn, hang out and have a good time.

• What we’ll do – Play with hardware, learn about hardware, hang out with cool people who love hardware.

• What to bring – Anything you want related to hardware. Personal projects, questions, tools, etc.

• Important to know – This is NOT just a meetup for people who have years of experience working with hardware. This is a meeting for anyone and everyone who is interested. Do you have zero experience but are curious? Come and learn. Do you have a lifetime of experience? Come and share that with others. Young and old alike are welcome. Pizza and Beer and wine for everyone (if age appropriate, of course)!
