[chuck-users] serial communication and chuck

I have a similar situation with a class that we are teaching. But the students have already learned Processing basics and ChucK basics before they do Arduino. So getting them to connect the Arduino to ChucK using Processing and OSC is not a problem.

But I would be equally interested in a serial communication solution.

But really, I'd MUCH rather teach ChucK, as I find that it is such a good teaching language and has so many out-of-the-box features thanks to the native implementation of percolate...
