Tinkering the spark
Lets kickstart programming and hardware interaction with the Arduino programming language. I will be using the Spark Inventor’s toolkit to create something fun.
Arduino is one of the most popular physical computing platforms available today. It is an amazing tool for both experienced and budding electronic enthusiasts. The best part: the entire Arduino project – both hardware and software – is open-source. I will be experimenting with the SparkFun Inventor’s Kit that has the Arduino Uno RedBoard. The main microprocessor on the board is ATmega328. You can go from blinking a led to building home automation systems.
