Quick Start Guide



fdasWe've got Arduinos! Lots and lots of Arduinos... but also, breadboards, jumpers, servos, and other hardware you'd need to complete your Arduino project. Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs - light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message - and turn it into an output - activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online. You can tell your board what to do by sending a set of instructions to the microcontroller on the board. To do so you use the Arduino programming language (based on Wiring), and the Arduino Software (IDE), based on Processing.
