Teaching an Embedded Web Server Class

BTW, if you're up here in New York and want to learn about making embedded devices that act like web servers, I'm teaching a two hour class on the subject on March 28th at NYC Resistor. After the class, I'll be putting my materials online, but I'm still working on everything right now.

You can get details on the class at http://www.eventbrite.com/event/302042417.

The class is about making nano-web servers that you can use to read sensors or control outputs. I've been working on the code for that off-and-on for a couple of weeks. I've also got some ideas for code patches for the Arduino support library, and I'd like to make a RGB LED shield for the Arduinos where three TI TLC9540 chips are used to drive a 4x4 matrix. I've also got the idea of using the RGB LEDs along with a video input circuit to make a homemade backlight that matches the wall color with the dominant color on a TV screen.

I wish I was in New York, because it's a really interesting topic for me. Arduinos are the coolest freaking invention.

Yeah, having hands on classes and people to bounce ideas off is really great. However, I know there's some interest in Austin. There seemed to be some effort to setup an Austin hackerspace (http://austinhackerspace.org/), and the Austin Robot Group (http://wiki.therobotgroup.org/wiki/Main_Page) has probably done some things with them.
