I have been tossing around the idea of learning Arduino for a number of months now and have finally started to dive in. I will update this blog as I make more cool Arduino projects.
There are two sides to Arduino, hardware and software. I have some experience working with electronic component assembly so it gives me a bit of a head start on the hardware side. Now, learning to code will take some time since it is foreign to me.
I’m a very visual learner so I have a hard time reading copy heavy books. Luckily there are many YouTube videos out there for beginners. I have been watching Programming Electronics Academy’s Arduino tutorial series and I will have to say the narrator, Michael James, does a great job breaking it down so even absolute beginners can follow easily. I highly recommend that series as a starting point.
Learning the basics of Arduino coding is great but I am eager to start applying it to useful everyday things!
