I hope so.
The point of the the Maple bacon is to try to make the arm accessible in a way that leverages an existing community. Leaflab's has taken a lot of the pain out of working with the arm while still giving you full access to it and working with another existing framework, Wiring(/Arduino) to make it easy to learn. The past year Wiring and Maple have been working together to create a unified platform with the advantages of both.
I have arrived at this platform through my own frustrations with the gap between scratch building, and having it all done for you.
In the class I will try to cover c(++) programming as recommended by the maple team and work on some of the stumbling blocks that I have come upon applying my experiences in an embedded environment. I come at this as someone who is not an EE but rather an experienced (though busy and not particularly brilliant) programmer who has learned most of his lessons the hard way in an artistic and professional capacity.
I hope that this class serves both those looking for a little more depth in embedded programming while still being accessible to artists and musicians.
As always with new things there will be stepwise refinement.
Hope to see you there.
