Both above software are free to download and install.
We will be using Arduino Uno kit in the workshop. The kit will be provided, so you do not have to bring an Arduino.
To write software for the Arduino, you will need a laptop in the workshop. Please bring a laptop. Download and install Arduino IDE prior to coming to the workshop.
To install the Arduino IDE:
Go to Download the Arduino Software page. http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software
Go to the section on the page Arduino IDE .
Download and install Arduino IDE for the Operating System on your computer. In the workshop, I will use computer running Windows 7. I will not be able to assist in installing the software in the workshop. It is critical the Arduino IDE is installed prior to the workshop.
Windows (XP, 7, 8) users please note:
Device driver gets installed on connecting to the Arduino board. Since you may not have the board, this step will take place in the workshop. Please familiarize yourself with the steps to verify the device driver is installed and is working correctly. For Windows 7/XP, the instructions are at Getting Started with Arduino on Windows http://arduino.cc/en/guide/windows.
Windows 8 users please note:
If you are using a Windows 8 computer, configure your computer to allow installation of unsigned drivers. There is an article on the web on how to do it. http://mytechblog.com/tutorials/arduino/install-arduino-drivers-on-windows-8/

Download and Install: No software needed for wearable tech workshops with Tenaya, but you can use ArduinoIDE to control Lilypad products just like breadboard components. If you like what we start with in the workshop, Tenaya can give you guidance for the intermediate level.
Graphical Web Game
Please prepare your laptop before coming, and complete the form whose link is below when you are done. The class will not wait for someone who is unprepared.
• Install a recent version of Chrome
• Install the Chrome NetBeans Connector
• Install NetBeans 8, either the “Full” bundle or the “HTML 5” bundle. If you have an older Mac OS and NetBeans 8 won’t install, use NetBeans 7.3.1 instead.
• If you’re planning to draw your own game art, install a drawing/painting program such as the free GIMP or Inkscape. If you are using a commercial program such as Photoshop, ensure you have a legitimate license to run it on the laptop.
• If you want to play around with sound effects, you might want to install Audacity.
Final Confirmation Form
Please complete this short form when you are done so I know you have set up the laptop and to provide some more information.
