Attached to this blog post is the handout which was used in the element14 booth at Maker Faire Detroit 2013:

Sponsored by Element14

 

Presented by Jason Kridner with Drew Fustini, David Hamblin, Justin Triplett (i3 Detroit volunteer) and Mark Miles

BeagleBone BlackBeagleBone Black is a $45, 1GHz computer that ships with a Linux distribution on its on-board 2GB flash and has extensive I/O capabilities. We’ll be focusing on how you can wire up sensors and actuators using an included JavaScript library and IDE.

It has four lessons which utilize Bonescript on the BeagleBone Black:

 

  1. Blink an LED
  2. Use button to set LED
  3. Use potentiometer to control LED brightness
  4. Read temperature using a TMP36 temperature sensor
