TI-RTOS Basic Game Development

Date: Wednesday, October 18.

Time: 6:00pm-8:00pm

Place: HPA1-207

Come out to a TI Workshop sponsored by IEEE

Receive a hands-on deep dive into the TI LaunchPad development kit and the SimpleLink™ product portfolio.  Learn how this family of microcontrollers introduces students to ARM® Cortex®-M, skills students will need in the industry, the different options for wireless communications and the multiple paths available to begin developing IoT products.  Gain insight into TI’s Real-Time Operating System through simple commands and learn how it can be used to manage complex applications such as a handheld game.
Participants will need to bring a laptop loaded with the Code Composer Studio software and TI-RTOS for MSP432  (or use CCS Cloud).

Date: Wednesday, September 27

Time: 11:00am – 3:00pm

Place: TI Lab (Eng2 Atrium)

This workshop is great if you want to learn how to solder (an important skill that engineers will need for their classes and careers). Stop by anytime between 11am and 3pm at the TI Lab in Engineering 2 atrium to learn this skill. Hope to see everyone there!

Texas Instrument’s BeagleBone Workshop

BeagleBone Black Getting Started with Embedded Linux
* Join us for a 2 hour workshop 5:30-7:30PM, Tuesday 08/29/2017 in Engineering II building: Room TI Innovation Lab first floor *

= Dinner provided =

You may know Linux, but it is a different world when it comes to embedded devices. Check out the open source BeagleBone Black single board computer www.beagleboard.org/black and see how it is well suited for creating applications that rely on a variety of peripherals. In this workshop, students and instructors will have fun programming in Python to get some data from the real world and create a game based on real feedback from inputs and outputs.
Participants will need to bring a laptop to interact with the BeagleBone Black hardware.
