Globalcode’s Casual Class: Robotics

Yesterday held the seventh edition of the Globalcode‘s Casual Class, this time featuring Robotics. Like before, this is a meeting that includes technology, pizza and beer! Can’t get much better than that =)

This time, the event was mainly presented by Vinicius Senger, Paulo (not me =p), and Alberto “Spock”. They talked a lot about robotics (of course) and electronics. Although I don’t think I will be using any of this information soon, it was very fun!

One of the biggest topics was Arduino, and “Open Source” Hardware. This is basically a controller board that you can build yourself at home, with very cheap components.

They also did some nice demonstrations, and explained how Arduino works, going a little bit in depth. I can’t say I understood too much here, but it certainly got me curious to find out more. I hope to find some time to at least play a little bit with some ideas. If it happens, I’ll post my discoveries here for sure!

For example, they showed the Egg-Painting robot running, which they had mentioned in the previous edition of the Casual Class.
