H3: Processing + Arduino

Welcome! Here are some details about H3: Processing + Arduino, the forth of a series of hardware hacking workshops in London (check out the others on our blog ) , organised by Tinker.it and hosted by Moving Brands!


We have the pleasure of having awesome hardware and software hackers Karsten Schmidt and Spencer Roberts leading this 2 day workshop during which participants will explore Processing and it’s uses with Arduino for interactive installation design, games, etc.

You should have a level of Arduino knowledge that’s intermediate to expert. We’ll bring a few Arduinos with us but please bring your own, so you can bring your project back with you! Also bring your own laptop!
