This time, it was for 2 days and in 3 parts.
Part 1 (day 1) was an introduction to the microcontrollers for everyone that was just starting – short 30 minutes presentation and then discussions about various problems that one may experience while working with input/output. It was interesting to see some observation by people that have no much experienced about buttons and the noise that they may produce, then … how do we do debouncing.
One of my friends shot a timelapse at one of the tables.
Part 3 (day 2) was the fun part.
We wrote the blinking LED program – that was easy.
Then we started experimenting.
We also managed to play polyphonic tunes using ELM – Wavetable Melody Generator.
But the most unusual thing we did was to make an old floppy disk drive play a melody.
Oh, by the way, incase you’ve not heard it yet 🙂 …
