Neopixel Holiday Workshop

//

Saturday, 11 November 2017, 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM

This workshop will teach you the basics of working with programmable LED strips just in time for the holidays. We are not going to be teaching coding; however, we will show you how to manipulate the code so the lights twinkle, theater chase, and make a beautiful rainbow display or anything else imaginable.

Bringing your own laptop would be useful but not mandatory

The workshop will provide the following items

  • 1- capacitor
  • 1-meter neopixel led strip
  • 1 power supply
  • 1 Arduino

There will be a couple of CNC/laser cut holiday ornaments to wrap the lights on.

You do not need to be a member, but everyone must register and purchase a ticket.
Price $30.00
To purchase a ticket for this workshop go to Eventbrite.
