VID2012 - Interfacing Code with the Physical World
Interfacing Code with the Physical World: A Crash Course in Processing and Arduino

INTERFACING CODE WITH THE PHYSICAL WORLD: A CRASH COURSE IN PROCESSING AND ARDUINO

Garnet Hertz, August 20th 2012

This is an introduction to Processing and Arduino, with the goal of providing you with new skills to help you quickly prototype and develop your own physical computing projects. Processing is an open source programming language and environment for people who want to create images, animations, and interactions. Arduino is an open-source hardware prototyping platform intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments. In this workshop, you will learn how the Arduino can sense information from the real world and how Processing can visualize it on a computer.

ABOUT VID2012

The Values in Design Doctoral Workshop is a week-long, intensive event sponsored by the Values in Design Program through the Department of Informatics in the Donald Bren School of Information & Computer Sciences at University of California, Irvine.

We bring together a group of 30-40 exceptional PhD candidates from a wide range of backgrounds to study and address issues of how human and social values are embedded, built into, influence, and otherwise instantiate themselves in information systems and technologies. By working across the intersections of computer science and engineering, social studies of science and technology, anthropology, policy and law, business, social entrepreneurship, art, design, and information science, the group both delves into the theories contributing to (and arising out of) sociotechnical design, as well as spends the week designing and building original information systems and technologies that materialize a set of social values.
