Ah yes, it is finally time to make your Arduino do something! We’re going to start with the classic hello world! of electronics, a blinking light. OK it doesn’t sound too exciting, heck you can just flip your desk lamp on and off without needing a microcontroller.. but I promise you, you’ll learn a lot!
This lesson will basically get you up and running using the Arduino software and uploading a sketch to the Arduino board. Once you’ve completed this step we can continue to the really exciting stuff, which is when we start writing our own sketches!
