London, England

This is the 19th workshop organised by Tinker.it in London on physical computing, Arduino and interaction design.

If you’re a web developer or a hardware hacker, you might be interested in hooking up Arduino to the internets!

We’re very happy to announce an Arduino + Web workshop lead by superstar programmer Matt Biddulph, CTO of Dopplr and assisted by Nick Weldin to take place on July 19-20th in a yet to be disclosed location (ping me if you’d like to host this!)

We encourage participants to have advanced knowledge of either web development or hardware (at least 6 months of experience with Arduino, attending a beginners workshop is probably not enough) to attend.

Over the weekend you might build projects like:
- A device that reads a feed from the internet such as weather forecast, stock price quote or twitter feed, and displays the information in some explicit or ambient way (eg Ambient Orb, LCD news feed display)
- A device that responds to input or sensor data and publishes it to the internet using a web API (eg pot plant that twitters when it needs watering)
- A device that acts as a web server and allows control of some other device (eg motor, lighting display) using a web interface (eg robot controlled over the internet)

Tickets are £160 for professionals and £105 for students.

Hope Matt's going to do another workshop later in the year.
