Intro Arduino: Using Encoders
Encoders are useful for user input in a variety of projects. But it can be tricky to get them to work, and work well. Rather than avoid them, embrace them… with our help!
In this class attendees will be taught how to hook up and use a rotary encoder with a built-in switch. The concepts around how encoders work, how to properly use them, and common pitfalls will be covered.
Included in the class price, attendees will be given an Arduino Nano and an EC11 encoder breakout to take home and use in their own projects.
Knox Makers classroom laptops will be provided. Feel free to bring your own computer if it is already set up and working prior to class; we won’t have time to provide tech support.
There is no particular experience level expected of attendees, but this class is geared towards a beginner with none, or a modest amount of exposure to Arduino.
There will be a minimum of 4 participants and a maximum of 80 participants for this event. If the minimum number is not met prior to the event, refunds will be issued.
Directions- Knox Makers parking and entrance is located around the back of the SPARK building in the fenced in area.
