We are working on SIGs and events. But even now the topics for main workshops are:
Arduino Mega and it's possibilities, including how to use color touch screen display.
ESP32 and it's use for social engineering and cyber attacks.
How to survive power outage: permanent storage available in Arduino, how to work with EPROM and SD cards.
Backup for mere mortals: how not to lose your data.
You're welcome to create your own SIG. If you have anything you would like to share, please contact us.
What would be part of the kit
This years kit will cost 800 CZK (about 30 €) and will contain a lot of interesting parts:
Board compatible with Arduino Mega. Mega is the most powerful classic Arduino board with the ATmega 2560 chip. It offers dozens of GPIO chips, lots of memoty and is powerfull enough for complex programs.
Color touchscreen with MicroSD card slot and we'll teach you how to use them.
Interesting board with the new ESP32 chip. It's younger brother of popular ESP8266 and in addition to Wi-Fi it offers Bluetooth as well. This board also contains charging circuit for Li-Ion batteries, three-way switch and MicroSD card slot. It's a good platform for making battery-powered smart devices.
Wireless communication modules.
Arduino Nano, because there's never enough of these.
And some other smaller parts.
Using full potential of an Arduino, more operations "at once"
We will look at core of an Arduino device, how Ticks, Elapsed Millis, Elapsed micros works. We will try working with intervals, interrupts and interrupts created by timers. We will explain how interrupts work and basic operations of ATMEGA. We will try to do two operations at once, for example reading data from sensor and at same time writing value to display and telling user so we are reading data. (TekuSP)
