I run a variety of public and private classes. If you would like to contact me about running a workshop for your organization, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Based on my book, Learning React Native, this three-hour workshop covers an introduction to React Native. Mobile components, styling, and native APIs are discussed, and participants will build a simple dictionary app for iOS and Android. The workshop assumes prior familiarity with React.
My most common class is an introductory Arduino workshop. It can be adjusted to fill a single hour or several, and I’ve taught it to groups as small as four people or as large as eighty.
The workshop combines a general introductory lecture to the Arduino platform with a hands-on building session. Participants are introduced to the basics of circuitry and breadboarding, and learn how to program an Arduino board. In a typical workshop, students will use an Arduino with LEDs, a light sensor, and a musical buzzer.
This workshop teaches students everything they need to know to get started with through-hole soldering. We focus on how to solder safely and effectively, as well as how to identify and fix mistakes. Students assemble Game of Life LED kits and get hands-on practice and feedback on both soldering and desoldering. No prior experience is assumed.
