Now free! Get the Arduino Create app for Chrome classrooms

via Arduino Blog

In the latest Arduino Education update, we’ve made the Arduino Create app free for Chrome. From today, as many educators, students, and parents around the world as possible can now access the Arduino Create Agent.

Arduino Chrome app is now free

What is Arduino Create (soon to become Arduino Cloud)?

Arduino Create is an online platform that lets students write code, access tutorials, configure boards, and share projects. 

Designed to provide users with a continuous workflow, Arduino Create connects the dots from inspiration to creation. This means students can manage every aspect of their projects right from a single dashboard.

Get the app for Chrome and Chromebooks

The app lets you use the Arduino Create on Chromebooks. You can then code online and save your sketches in the Cloud. Then you can upload them to any Arduino board connected to your computer, and do it all without having to install anything locally.

Developed with the classroom in mind, the Arduino Create app runs on Chrome OS. It enables you to teach and play with Arduino electronics and programming in a shared environment. Because it’s a Cloud-based environment, you can also be sure it’s always up-to-date. All the contributed libraries are automatically included, and any new Arduino boards are supported out-of-the-box.

Arduino’s CEO, Fabio Violante, says, “The aim of Arduino Education is to put technology into the hands of every student around the world. Making Arduino Create free, and therefore more accessible, is a step towards doing this. We’re proud to provide open-source software, and want to inspire students and educators in STEAM learning.”

Download the Arduino Create app here, and join us on the forums to tell us about your experiences.

Arduino Create Agent 1.2.0 is finally here

via Arduino Blog

It’s been a while since the last release of the Arduino Create Agent.

We tried to give some love to this awesome tool, in order to enhance the experience with the Create ecosystem.

Finally, we have a brand new CI/CD pipeline based on GitHub Actions.

Highlights of this release include:

  • New status bar icon
  • We used gomodules to better handle dependencies
  • Refactor system tray menu
  • UX improvements
  • Now we ship both 32 and 64-bit Windows binaries
  • Added crash report generation
  • Added Virustotal scan to help users with false positives antivirus detections
  • We decided to uniform the naming to “Arduino Create Agent” and remove the mentions to “Plugin” or “Bridge”

If you are interested in the complete changelog, you can find that here.

For the upcoming releases, we will tackle the stability/crash problems. So please help us discover and find bugs by enabling crash report and including it in the GitHub issue.

Work remotely with Arduino Create — get a free upgrade now

via Arduino Blog

To help individuals work remotely and share their designs with team members, we’re providing a free three-month upgrade to the Arduino Create Maker plan to all 1.4 million users of Create as well as new subscribers to the service. With Arduino Create everything is ready to go; there is no need to install libraries and you can quickly share your sketch with teammates via just a URL. 

To gain your free three-month upgrade* all you need to do is go to Arduino Create choose the “Maker” plan with the default monthly option and enter the voucher code “CREATE4FREE” during the purchase process.

Arduino Create enables users to write code, access content, configure boards and share projects. Features such as an always up-to-date online IDE and the ability to share builds and receive feedback from other facilities means you can work from home efficiently and effectively. If you don’t want to start a project from scratch there’s always the option to tap into the power of the community on the Arduino Project Hub by browsing projects and making them your own. 

The ‘Maker’ plan comes with the added benefits of up to 250 sketches allowed in your sketchbook along with 200MB space to store those sketches and libraries. You can manage more connected objects (five ‘things’) with up to 20 properties per ‘thing,’ enabling the development of complete IoT solutions. Automating processes remotely is further enabled by the Maker plan including access to set up and remotely control 5 of each cloud enabled Arduino board, three cloud-enabled Linux devices, and one cloud-enabled generic third-party board.

Find out more details about Arduino Create and all the features included in the Maker plan here.

*The ‘free 3-month upgrade to Create Maker is applicable to the monthly plan and is limited to new subscribers only. Voucher code “CREATE4FREE” expires June 30th, 2020.
