Description

Class Experience

This class will take the basic skills of programming and add in the concepts of electronic components as inpuots and outputs, making the microcontroller interface with the real world. Each class is designed to add one or two concepts to the knowledge base, and use hands projects to cement the understanding. 
I have been in the tech industry as an engineer and entrepreneur all my life, and building robots since the early 70s. I am experienced in both hardware and software, giving unique ability to convey the concepts of robotics (marriage of hardware + software) in easy to understand ways. The goal is understanding the concepts to build a foundation upon with to go further. 
It may be required to complete some project between classes.
We have partnered with Perfect Package to provide the necessary materials. 

Here is the link where you can easily find all the necessary materials:
