Brent Clements will demonstrate a few "real world" uses for inexpensive Arduino controllers. He will start with a crash course on what they are and how to work with them. Next he will demonstrate how to control simple lights and other devices with simple programs, as well as discuss a couple of ways he has used Arduinos in the past.
Tim Laurence will tell us about text formats. A few common human readable file formats connect many of systems in our lives together. Tim will introduce us to some of the more common and useful ones you may encounter and show examples of them in use.
