Normally, using an Arduino is as simple as plug and play into your USB. With the Mini, however, you need to use the FTDI Friend. The Friend itself is a simple device that converts […]

Lincoln’s new bachelor’s degrees for 2014

Senza categoria Commenti disabilitati


 


Why take a Lincoln degree?
New Zealand and the world are facing a number of serious land-based challenges, including food production, supply and security; environmental quality and sustainability; land-use change and its social impact; and issues of quality of life associated with all of these.
So the world needs people willing – and able – to provide some answers.  Lincoln University has the programmes to help you become one of those people. 
What degrees are on offer?
Our recent changes have seen an even greater focus on our strengths, and we now offer 14 specialist bachelor’s degrees:
Three core degrees with specialist land-based majors:
Bachelor of Commerce
  • Accounting and Finance
  • Food and Resource Economics
  • Information Technology
  • Marketing
  • Supply Chain Management and Global Business
  • GIS and Environmental Informatics
  • Land and Society
  • Maori and Indigenous Environmental Management
  • Water Management
  • Agritech
  • Biosecurity and Bio-protection
  • Conservation and Ecology
  • Food Science
  • Land, Water, Environment
Why land-based?
Lincoln University is New Zealand’s specialist land-based university.  That means all our programmes are designed to help contribute to three broad goals, to:
  • Feed the world
  • Protect the future, and
  • Live well.
We can do this because we have strong credentials in teaching and research with a land-based focus, in the domains of: agriculture and life sciences; environment, society and design; business and commerce. 
It is these broad domains that teach the skills needed for the 490,000 jobs in the land-based industries in New Zealand.  These jobs make up 20% of our workforce. Globally the proportions are similar.  
Whatever your skills and interests, there is a degree at Lincoln - and a career in the world – for you.  And by contributing to one of our three goals – you get to do it for good.
To find out more about New Zealand’s specialist land-based university and our bachelor’s degrees, get in touch. Email land@lincoln.ac.nz and we will send you out a Course Information Guide.

Maker Faire Rome

Starting thursday the 3rd of October, Maker Faire Rome is finally opening in the italian capital, gathering hundreds of makers from all over Europe. We’ve been working on it for some months together with Riccardo Luna and Asset Camera team: finally it’s time to enjoy the moment.

The conference

On thursday you can attend the conference “How to reMake the World” with Riccardo Luna and Massimo Banzi, curators of the Faire, along with international guests including David John Gauntlett, Raffaello D’Andrea, Dale Dougherty and many more. It’ll be a total immersion in the universe of 3D printing, open source electronics and the culture of making. Discover all the speakers at this link.

The booth

You can visit Arduino booth (Zone D2) during the weekend where  you’ll find a series of one-to-one stations for different level of knowledge, from beginners to pro. You’ll be able to explore together with Officine Arduino/FablabTorino crew:

  • the Arduino Starter Kit with its 10 projects and the book (Now also in ITALIAN!)
  • the Arduino Yún and some cool demos
  • the Arduino Mega ADK and its great features
  • the Arduino Robot running around the fair!
  • other experimental projects from the lab

Meet all the other makers at this link.

The store 

Many people have been asking and the answer is YES! There will be an Arduino Store selling most of the Arduino products at the Faire (Arduino Yún included!). You’ll find also some other interesting products like kits from Make, O’Reilly books, Little Bits, kits by Prusa, Ultimaker,  Plug&Wear and more.

The presentations

Starting at the conference, there will be Massimo Banzi, all the other Arduino’s founders (Tom Igoe, David Mellis, David Cuartielles, Gianluca Martino) and Officine Arduino/Fablab Torino crew participating to panels, talks and debates. Check Maker Faire program in the next days to learn about the details. Don’t miss this chance to have your board autographed! ;)

arduinonoise“Make some noise” was a short one-day workshop about Arduino where we explored the topic of sound and it was aimed at complete beginners with no experience. To simplify the structure of the workshop we started with hands-on experiments composed by a quick set of exercises to enable the participants to understand the basics and, later on, to start exploring pitch, frequency, tone ,and multiple effects—with quite curious results.

Vamos a ver como poder realizar mediciones de temperatura con nuestro Arduino y el sensor LM35. Dicho sensor es un sensor analógico de la casa Texas Instruments, que nos permite realizar medidas de temperatura de una forma bastante precisa a través de las entradas analógicas de nuestro Arduino (pines A0-A5) sin necesidad de emplear ninguna […]
ir_pulse_sensor_titleInfrared Pulse Sensor is the latest addition to our beginner-friendly series of Weekend Projects. Inspired by a photoresistor pulse sensor, MAKE's Technical Editor Sean Michael Ragan built this IR-based pulse sensor using emitter and detector diodes, combined with an LM384 op-amp IC and an Arduino.

Un compañero del blog, Roberto de www.excontrol.es, nos ha enseñado su proyecto de domótica con la placa Arduino Mega y la Ethernet Shield. Cabe decir que es un proyecto muy interesante y que pone a disposición de todo el mundo para su uso y disfrute. Las características principales del sistema son: 6 zonas de iluminación […]

arduino - new website

During World Maker Faire in NYC some days ago, Massimo Banzi unfolded for the first time the process of ‘reimagination’ of our website.

Starting this week you are going to experience a progressive change of our platform and in the next months we’ll release periodic updates aimed at improving and enhancing your overall user experience on arduino.cc (especially the blog, forum and shop).

Announcement!

Wednesday 2nd of October Arduino.cc will be offline for 12 hours

In this first session we are going to update the website with a new navigation and reading experience. Later on we’ll focus on redesigning the overall information architecture: expect much more in the upcoming weeks!

In the meanwhile we’ll be happy to hear from you on the dedicated Forum thread ‘Arduino Website 3.0‘, with your feedback we can continue to improve our process.

Improvements don’t just happen: for this redesign operation we’ve extended our long-term collaboration with TODO, the design studio which already developed the Arduino identity, the boards layout and the packaging for the whole series of Arduino products. Solid results are coming soon!

We’re committed to make vital investment in order to provide the Arduino community a better learning and sharing experience. We apologize for any inconvenience you may experience as a result of this programmed downtime and thank you for your patience.
