Introductions – each student to answer
- Who are you?
- Where are you (technologically)?
- Where do you want to go?
We can use the input to help determine what projects to do for future lessons based on interests
What is an Arduino?
“Arduino is a very popular and easy to use programmable board for creating your own projects”
It’s anything you want it to be –
- Input (Sensors)
Installation and Introduction of IDE
The Blink Sketch
Introduction to Arduino program structure (setup and loop functions) and some basic c coding

Concept – Monitors the Temperature, Humidity, and Barometric Pressure out on our deck.
Parts – Uses a DHT11 for the temperature and humidity readings and a BMP280 for the barometric pressure. The MCU is an Adafruit Hazzah ESP8266.

Installed and testing
Custom Build by my brother Todd L. McCagg as my 2018 Brithday/Christmas present
My first guitar was a 1962 Fender Duo Sonic, my brother went to great lengths to not just reproduce that guitar that build it with the best modern hardware available.
- Fender donor body
- Warmoth Neck
- Schaller Bridge
- HipShot Tuners
- Kent Armstrong Custom Wound Pickups
- Switchcraft Switch and Jack
- Bournes MIL Spec pots
Truly the sweetest guitar I have!
