Ever wished you could duplicate that successful Arduino project without shelling out for another Arduino? Well you can, and it’s not too difficult. VHS regular Simon is running a workshop next Thursday that will show you how to take your Arduino code and install it on a standalone ATmega328 microcontroller (the same type that is in the Arduino 2009 and Uno). Chips and full step-by-step instructions will be provided. All you need to bring is your Arduino 2009 or Uno, a USB cable and a computer running the latest Arduino IDE software. Note: please update your software and make sure that your computer is still talking to your Arduino before the event.
