New HackadayU lessons: Antenna Fundamentals, Raspberry Pi Pico, and Complicated Geometry Design

Get Them While They’re Still Hot: A new session of HackadayU has just opened with classes from three amazing teachers, and spaces are filling up quickly.

Introduction to Antenna Basics – Instructor Karen Rucker teaches antenna design basics like it’s your first year in the business. She will cover the common types of antenna designs and the basics of radio frequency engineering they contain. Starts Thursday May 6th.

Raspberry Pi Pico and RP2040 – The Deep Dive – Instructor Uri Shaked leads the class through the internals of the RP2040 microcontroller, covering the system architecture, hardware peripherals, and some examples of ARM assembly languages. Starts on Wednesday May 5th.

Designing with Complex Geometry – Instructor James McBennett will guide you through your 3D modeling game with a course on using complex geometries in Grasshopper3D (part of Rhino3D). Immerse yourself in the inconsistent Rational B-Spline (NURBS) and switch from simple shapes to incredibly complex objects with a little code. Starts Tuesday May 4th.

Each course includes five weekly courses starting in May. Attending the live class through Zoom provides interactivity with the instructor and other students. All tickets are pay-as-you-wish with a suggested donation of $ 20. All proceeds go to socially conscious charities.

For the benefit of all, each class will be edited and published on Hackaday’s YouTube channel upon completion of this session. Check out our playlists for past HackadayU courses or see them all in one giant playlist.
