Playing around with an Arduino today, programmed it to count down. Very simple, I know, but it is just introduction to the usage.
This article is not meant to be a tutorial. It is to remind myself of what I did.
The arduino programming IDE basically just C++ with a different namespace. And a little deviation. You don't need things like #include , and don't need a int main(int argc, char** argv) program.
A flashy video here:
After a while I just gave up and did it by hand. This drawing thing is really annoying, too many wires!!!
This stuff is quite fun, I will update this post later when I figure out more things to do with it.
