D+TM #40 Chris Osborn
What: D+T Masterclass
What: Introducing Digital Electronics
When: Monday 7th of December, 3:20-6pm
Where: Parsons Paris room 500
Who: Chris Osborn
The maker movement has put a rich and accessible ecosystem of digital electronics in the hands of designers. Sometimes it’s too accessible: Arduino can offer the newcomer quick gratification with blinking LEDs only to present an impossible learning curve later. In this session we will take a big step up that learning curve, introducing the fundamentals of electronics, digital information, and circuit design. The goal is to help hardware hackers from non-engineering backgrounds understand what their creations are really doing under the hood, increasing their confidence as they go beyond simple shields and sketches.
Chris Osborn studied electrical engineering and computer science at MIT. He now designs software for a living and home beer brewing systems for fun.
