Philip Lindsay (also known as follower from ) creates tools to encapsulate the knowledge he gains from exploring and understanding technology in order to help others do their jobs more effectively. He translates technology.

In addition to teaching introductory Arduino workshops Philip has contributed SD, USB and networking code to the Arduino eco-system.

When not exploring technology for the fun of it, Philip creates documentation, code libraries and example projects for SparkFun Electronics, the Arduino development team, Pebble Technology and other clients.

Tim O’Reilly once called Philip a “troublemaker” for his early Google Maps reverse engineering efforts.

Philip has a particular interest in the areas where design, art, craft and technology intersect.

Have you always wanted to create hardware devices to interact with the real world? When you attend this workshop you will: set up an Arduino board and software; learn how the Arduino fits into the field of physical computing; and make your Arduino respond to button presses and blink lights. Hardware is fun! Note: Cost of the kit (USD $57) is included in the registration price for this tutorial. Read more.
