Researcher / Politechinc University Of Bari
Under the motto “fly only those who dare to do it" Piero is a passionate student and a curious geek. It begins like many, dismantling pc, he then get passionate about electronics and programming. Today he’s a designer and maker with many models to strive for. Diverse work experience: from IT consulting up to web contents editing passing by the implementation of Open Source projects, training, education and more. After working in the neuroscience field as electronic designer now he does research for Bari Polytechnic.
Almost electronics engineer / BariMakers
He brings his passion for OpenSource also in his work for the triennial degree thesis in Electronic Measurements, designing ashield for Arduino that allows the remote use of a lab reflectometer. Associated with BariMakers, in recent years he participated in events such as the Innovation Festival and the Makers Meeting, organizing and taking Arduino and electronic prototyping worshops.
The course aims to provide the basics of programming on prototyping microcontroller boards. Starting from the most popular Arduino, the concepts learned will be easily reused with lots of commercially available solutions. It will then pass to the practical realization of a prototype chosen by participants, who’ll be working in groups of 2 (SOS will provide an Arduino kit for each group, for the duration of the lab).
The group's work result will be the creation of a prototype designed by the group itself at the beginning of the workshop.
During the course, there several stages and topics will alternate:
☛ Electronics and its foundations;
☛ Arduino and microcontrollers;
☛ Various sensors and sampling variables;
☛ Introduction to programming, IDE, programming techniques, sample sketch;
☛ Kit components identification and explanation;
☛ Prototype configuration and installation;
