The Arduino platform is 15 years old. It has shaped a new generation of makers. It has reduced the gap between inaccessible embedded world and wide variety of designers, makers and artists.
The talk will describe a software developer’s point of view on designing Arduino compatible hardware. It will help you to understand what is behind the Arduino and why it is so popular.
We will disassemble it to basic blocks and create a new project – Programmable Infrared Remote Recorder (PIRR). The talk will present challenges, failures and final results from designing your own embedded device.
