This year the Code PaLOUsa conference — designed to cover all aspects of software development, regardless of technology stack — will be featuring Involution Studios' UX Designer Scott Sullivan and his expertise with the open source Arduino prototyping platform. The 2013 conference will have a total of 63 sessions, presented by well-known professionals in the regional and national software development community.

Intro to Physical Computing with Arduino
Ever want to make your code talk with the real world? With the Arduino and the Processing language (C++ with training wheels), doing this is actually pretty simple. In this session, we'll walk step-by-step through a real-life client project involving hardware prototyping and development with Arduino, making these devices talk wirelessly, and displaying physical data in a custom graphical interface.

This presentation will cover the basic principles of using the Arduino and sensors to get data from the physical world (with live demonstrations), and then how to make sense of that data with simple visualizations using Processing. With this knowledge you can build an army of super robots that can take over the world.

Topics: Design, arduino, Events, prototyping
