Participants in this workshop will be handed a shifty looking baggie full of inexpensive parts which they will use to create their very own Arduino - compatible microcontroller board.

While constructing the board, we will discuss and tinker with each component (clock source, power regulation, etc.) to see how they work. Then we'll boot 'em up and (provided the blue smoke hasn't escaped by this point) start writing some code and talking to some devices.
