A while ago I attended the opening party of Timelab in Ghent. This organisation offers a platform to artists, technologists and society and does research on how these communies can benefits from each other.
My interest was triggered because I’m building a RepRap and they have one finished and building a new one. People can use the Timelab infrastructure to print their own 3D models or use the other gear they have. Not only can you use it, they can teach you how to build those things yourself.
To do that, they organise a range of workshops from open labdays to an introductory course to Arduino programming. That is exactly what I was looking for. If you are interested in taking this course on April 20, check out the details here! It is free but places are limited so hurry.
I really wish the guys at Timelab the best of luck, this is a great project!
You can find all the info you need on http://www.timelab.org.
Update: I just received a mail from Timelab to let me know they are organizing a second Arduino workshop on April 27 due to the success. – More details on http://www.timelab.org/Arduino
