USITT Arduino SuperSession

Trinculo’s Attic is proud to sponsor the 2013 USITT Arduino SuperSession. This 3-hour session on Saturday afternoon will give you an opportunity to program the Arduino to control real world devices and get your hands dirty with all things microcontroller.

Session Details:
Saturday March 23rd
2PM to 4:45PM
USITT Conference in Milwaukee (Exact location TBD)

This is an introductory hands-on Arduino super-session. We will have experts and assistants on hand to help you work through problems as you build circuits that light up, react, and move. The workshop uses the SparkFun Inventor’s Kit as its base, teaching you up to 14 circuits and the programming behind them. The first hour will be dedicated to software and hardware setup using the Arduino Integrated Development Editor, with the remainder of the session focusing on input with sensors and controlling output devices (5VDC, 12VDC, 120VAC). Participants will be sorted by experience level, so if you’ve already played a little with Arduino, you won’t get stuck re-learning how to make an LED blink.

This session is limited to 32 slots and is completely free (with full conference admission, that is). A limited number of laptops will be available, but we recommend you bring your own. A working USB port is required, and the Arduino software and Processing should be downloaded prior to arrival.

To sign up (slots are limited!), please e-mail: with your name, phone number, e-mail address, and whether you can bring a laptop.

We’ll try to keep this post up to date, but as of 9AM EST Mar 9th, there are 10 of 32 slots available. A confirmation response from is required to be considered registered.

If you have any questions, please e-mail

Spectators are welcome in this session.
