Blind Arduino Workshop to Honor Arduino Day 2016

In honor of
Arduino Day 2016,
on April 2, 2016, the Blind Arduino Project will hold the first of a series of in-person workshops to demonstrate and teach critical methods for blind Arduino developers. This workshop will include hands-on experience with eyes-free wiring, coding, and debugging of Arduino projects. We will assist blind makers with the process of configuring their own systems for accessible development, and will support attendees at all levels from design advice on advanced projects to one-on-one guided tours of open-source examples, all in a relaxed and supportive environment.

Participants in this first Blind Arduino Workshop will gain first-hand experience building auditory and tactile displays for Arduino devices using a variety of servos, steppers, buzzers, and specialized shields. They will also form the core group of future teachers and mentors for our up-coming Blind Arduino Workshops -- yet to be announced.

The first Blind Arduino Workshop will take place from 10:00-5:00 on April 2, 2016, at the Ed Roberts Campus in Berkeley, California. If you would like to attend this event, please
sign up.
No previous experience is required, but knowledge of Windows and your access technology is suggested. Space is limited, so we may not be able to accommodate all applicants in the first round (hence the plan for more workshops in the future).

We hope to see you there!

  1. Programming is very interesting and creative thing if you do it with love. Your blog code helps a lot to beginners to learn programming from basic to advance level. I really love this blog because I learn a lot from here and this process is still continuing.
