This class was dealing with microcontrollers (primarily Arduino), sensors, activators and other interactive stuff. Individually and in small teams we were hacking electronic devices, writing codes, and building/soldering DYI projects. It was a lot of fun, especially because I was already pretty familiar with the Arduino and Arduino IDE programming environment. Also, I am fascinated with the Maker Faire and hope to attend this event as a ‘maker’ one day:)
