Keith hard at work

In preparation for the Microchip MASTERs Conference in Phoenix next week, Keith Vogel and Gene Apperson of Digilent are preparing two classes. Gene will teach the Introduction to chipKIT class and Keith will teach the more advanced class, which features an overview of wireless networking protocols and includes hands-on lab exercises with the chipKIT uC32, WiFi Shield, and Basic I/O Shield.

Digilent provides an open source networking stack as well as a robust http server sketch. Attendees will learn how to use this free software to add wireless networking to their designs quickly and easily. Hope to see you there!
