From the Forums: Cappy Presents Arduino testing! #Arduino
Thanks so much to sumanta for sharing this great video on to the Adafruit forums!
There are tons of videos on Arduino out there. Our goal in this video is to test an Arduino board and have fun. There are no multi-meters, oscilloscopes or any other equipment involved. Just your Mac/PC, USB cable and Arduino board. This is one of the simplest ways to test the board.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
