Arduino Uno Unleashed - How to get started with Arduino Uno

Arduino Unleashed.

This is a new series I decided to introduce as part of my tutorials.

In each post we'll deal with one Arduino/Arduino Compatible board with simple steps that can get you started even if you are a complete beginner.




Warning:
This instructable is NOT for experts.

If you want to learn Arduino then you need to get your hands busy. So Let's get started.






Programming

What you need:



USB Cable

Arduino IDE (download and setup on your computer)




I know this is so primitive but if you are a beginner this is really rewarding.

If you manage to blink an LED in one system then you can do anything else.

Open Arduino IDE. From the menu choose ….

Tools -- Board -- Arduino Uno


Then

File – Examples – Basics – Blink.






Then you can see the code that blinks the built in LED in your Arduino board.




Choose menu

File – Upload




Now you can see the LED in Arduino board blinking at a constant rate.




Congratulations.

You have completed the very first Arduino lesson.

Stay tuned to many other lessons.
