Former Googler shared experience on Arduino-Based Microcontroller Programming

April 8, 2016

ArduinoSince 2015 when CoreValue supported GDG Devfest as a diamond partner, the mutual cooperation has been effectively growing. GDG Devfest 2015 was a huge event with over 40 awesome speakers from the top technical companies including Google, Intel, Yandex and others.

April 5-6th, 2016 – CoreValue and GDG Lviv hosted a common event at the CoreValue’s office in Lviv. The education session on Arduino-based microcontroller programming was delivered by Mikhail Iakhiaev, a former Googler with over 5 years of experience in the US, Mountain View and an overall developing experience equaling over 12 years.

Mikhail worked on all aspects of Google Scholar including web front-end, crawling/indexing  pipelines, production setup, user query analysis etc. Additionally, Mikhail has a very interesting hobby – robotic projects. He worked on the servo-based robotic arm AL5D, combined with the Arduino Nano controller and augmented with sensors, such as accelerometer, gyro and touch sensors. 

With a passion for microcontrollers, Mikhail spoke about the programming specifics of microcontrollers based on Arduino. As a bonus, he shared the experience of cooperation with Google.

The education session was interactive and very interesting. In order to satisfy the growing curiosity of the audience, Mikhail with GDG Lviv and CoreValue decided to extend the session with an Arduino Lab – a workshop designed for people with no or little experience in electronics and microcontrollers. Everyone who has a technical background in coding had a possibility to plug different devices into the Arduino microcontrollers and observe the interaction of simple code and microcontrollers.
