Keywords: Arduino, C programming language


Coding for fashion-tech entails the integration of fashion and technology by giving a function to a design, for example through adding programmable lights or sensors to a garment. This allows to amplify and extend the natural ability and performance of the human body or add new ways of communication or interaction with the body, or anything surrounding the user. By achieving the fundamental understanding of coding, the students will be able to understand the language of coding and the possible relationship between fashion and technology that will enable them to work in interdisciplinary teams.
