This presentation is meant to introduce people to the most basic aspects of Arduino as a platform and concept. Arduino is a programmable integrated circuit with lots of community support and low or no cost development tools that allow you to create anything from a twitter account that shares when your dog eats from her food bowl to an always-on GPS reporter that tells a spreadsheet where it is every 30 seconds.
