Some of the people who were involved with Ptarmigan are now operating Temporary.
The idea of this workshop is to introduce electronics, the Arduino open source micro-controller platform and it’s possibilities to partipiciants. Arduino is a little computer that everybody can program to work with different sensor and actuators. You can create robots, synthesizers, alarms or something rather peculiar.
The workshop is primarily intended for those who are not familiar with electronics and Arduino.
