Announcing IVD Super Clinics

Super Clinic - Arduino 101

Our next planned Super Clinic will be on Arduinos on April 13th from 1pm to 4pm at the Peoria Library North Brand, the same location we have been having our IVD meets. We will start out with a basic Arduino 101 clinic to get everyone familiar with the Arduino. And then work our way into model railroad Arduino projects. I am hoping to make this a bi-monthly clinic and all will build knowledge as we go. There will be a couple of pre-requisites to attend these clinics and those are:

  1. A laptop computer
  2. Arduino IDE software. Which can be downloaded from the Arduino website.
  3. Arduino projects kit. We are going to buy these kits for you to purchase (if you don’t already have one)
