Shrimping It at the SPA

based on the Shrimp
I'm running a workshop at BCS SPA 2014 called 'Make your own Arduino clone'.

The clone you get to build is based on the Shrimp - a low-cost and very successful breadboard or stripboard based version of the popular Arduino microcontroller board.

The BCS SPA conference is an annual event that's been running for 18 years, bringing together experts and practitioners to share the latest thinking in software development.

SPA conferences are unique; the sessions are interactive and hands-on, so no-one suffers death by Po***Point.

This year SPA is running from 29 June to 2 July at the BCS offices in central London.

One part of the SAP tradition is that the formal programme is supplemented by diversions; the workshop is the diversion for Monday 30th June.

It will run from 18:00 to 19:00 (at which point I'm off to the pub).

Even if you're new to electronics and the world of Physical Computing, this hands-on workshop will send you home with a simplified Arduino-compatible computer-on-a-breadboard that you have built yourself.

You will need a laptop with a spare USB port and version 1.0.x of the Arduino IDE installed.

Book soon: the conference sells out every year.
