Rapid Prototyping with .net Gadgeteer – St Andrews

Date(s) - 24/07/2013
All Day

The Royal College of Surgeons, Quincentenary Hall, Edinburgh

You are invited to join a one day hardware workshop: “Rapid Prototyping with .Net Gadgeteer” where you will be introduced to the .NET Gadgeteer Platform [1] and hack together some prototypes. Over the first part of the course you will build a digital camera (similar to [2]), followed by group projects where participants will be asked to come up with ideas that are relevant to their fields of research/studies.

This workshop will be delivered by two researchers from the University of Stuttgart who are interested in the design space as well as limitations of building smart artifacts using .NET Gadgeteer. The workshop is kindly supported by Microsoft Research in Cambridge. .NET Gadgeteer was developed for Open Source usage in Cambridge [3].

*Please note a two day version of this workshop will be held in Glasgow on the 25th-26th July which you can register for via: http://sicsagadgeteer2.eventbrite.com
