Arduino IDE: Nightly Builds are now Hourly Builds

Thursday, April 23rd, 2015

Hourly_Builds_post

The Arduino IDE is a collection of modules written in different programming languages and available for three operating systems: Windows, Mac OSX and GNU/Linux.

Every time you download the Arduino IDE, you are actually downloading the result of a careful packaging process, intended to make the download as small as possible and to give you the easiest possible out-of-the-box user experience.

The process is fully automated and it’s repeated every time we publish a new feature, or we fix a bug you helped us find, or we merge code you contributed.

The resulting IDEs are called Nightly Builds: they contain the latest and greatest (and, possibly, buggiest) from the Arduino IDE. (more…)

Wire Your Arduino Sensors to the Cloud with Temboo Streaming

Our friends at Temboo just introduced a new way to log data from an Arduino Yún to the cloud. Called Streaming, it lets you visually select the sensors attached to your Arduino that you have gathering data, and then stream that data to the cloud IoT platform of your choice. (more…)

Call for Makers is open! Join Maker Faire Rome 2015

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015

600x400_call4maker

Last year Maker Faire Rome welcomed 600 projects, 200 performances, 90.000 visitors coming from all over the world.  Maker Faire Rome – The European Edition recently announced its third edition scheduled from the 16th to the 18th of October 2015 and will take place at  “La Sapienza” University in Rome, exceptionally “closed” for three days to host this international event.

The Curators of the Faire, Massimo Banzi, co-founder of Arduino and Riccardo Luna, italian Digital Champion, are inviting makers of all kinds and ages to showcase their amazing work and embrace the do-it-yourself (or do-it-together) spirit with a great and appreciative audience.

Are you a Maker, an Innovator, a digital Craftsman? The MakerFaireRome’s Call4Makers is out! (more…)

Want to help Arduino.CC? Take a pic of your Arduino packages!

ArduinoManufactured

We are posting below an interesting blogpost published on the Adafruit’s website on Sunday April 19th, and then mentioned by Hackaday.

Give it a read and use the #TeamArduinoCC tag when posting a pic of your packaging: that’s how you can show your support to Arduino.cc!

————————
Please post old Arduino packaging that says “Manufactured under license from Arduino” #TeamArduinoCC
Hey folks, as a lot of you know there’s a huge Arduino vs Arduino dispute (Hackaday / MAKE coverage / Arduino.cc). We’re currently making an official Arduino with Arduino.cc so we’re not commenting at this time for all sorts of good reasons, however, we, as in the Arduino.cc community, could use your help. If you could dig up any old Arduino packaging that has “Manufactured under license from Arduino by SMART PROJECTS” and post the photos – that could be pretty helpful for “team Arduino.cc”. (more…)

Arduino web architecture, back to the future

Thursday, April 16th, 2015

post

The last couple of months have been the most exciting of my entire career. Here at Arduino we are doing a big shift in terms of technology, user experience, and web improvements.

A new Arduino web ecosystem is arising, and the first hint of this new approach is visible in the Arduino Day website. This single-page website was the perfect fit to start experimenting with some new technologies we wanted to put in production. The Arduino Day website was a testbed for some new features of the new architecture we want to achieve.

Goals

  1. Website online and running 99.98% of the time
  2. Fast on every device
  3. Easy way to push updates online
  4. New theme with a single page app
  5. Clear division between presentation and functionalities (client/server architecture)
  6. Https whenever is possible
  7. Microservices

Intel_core_post

We are very pleased to announce the availability of Intel® Galileo and Edison boards support with the Arduino IDE Boards Manager.

If you’ve already installed the Arduino IDE 1.6.3 (or newer), you are already set!

Just click on menu Tools > Board > Boards Manager to find both Galileo and Edison listed and available for download. Click on one of the list, then click Install. Wait a couple of minutes for the IDE to download and unpack all the needed tools and voilà: Board menu will list the Intel board of your choice.

Creative Technologies in the Classroom goes to Ecuador

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

EcuadorCTC

We are happy to announce that Creative Technologies in the Classroom has been successfully implemented in Ecuador since the fall of 2014 in 40 different places along the country, to more than 600 participants and thanks to the Telefonica Foundation Ecuador.

Creative Technologies in the Classroom (CTC) is a collection of experiments aimed at transforming the way technology is taught in schools around the world for participants going from 10 to 18 years old. These experiments introduce basic concepts in programming, electronics, and mechanics and consists of four phases:

  • Teacher Training (1 week)
  • Themed Modules (4 modules)
  • Student Projects (9 weeks)
  • Technology Fair

CTC Ecuador has also been implemented within the Pro Niño Project that helps employed children to attend to educational activities and learn about technology. This aims to open an opportunity for them to study at the technical universities in the area (many of them also support the project). The teachers for CTC/Pro Niño are social workers instead of regular school teachers. Here are some pictures of the program in El Oro and the South of Quito.

Some CTC Ecuador projects were also presented at an exhibition in Cuenca about society, art and technology hosted by Telefonica Movistar Ecuador.

Making Space Accessible to Students with U of M Satellite

Friday, April 3rd, 2015

satellite

The U of M Satellite project started in 2010 as a student group at the University of Manitoba with the goal of building a nano satellite (10 x 10 x 34 cm) and make space accessible to the public. We got in touch with Ahmad Byagowi, team lead of the project, who teaches robotics in the same university. Ahmad told us that U of M Satellite became soon very popular, in fact  more than 300 students joined the group. In the first iteration the satellite’s goal was studying a micro animal (about 1 mm) called tardigrades and see its behaviour in space. The second iteration started in 2012, the same year of the launch of the Arduino Due and that’s why they designed everything based on it.

We had a nice talk with Ahmad and asked a bit more about the project. (more…)
