Before I worked for the Maker Shed, I decided I wanted to get into Arduino. I began researching kits to determine which one was the best fit for me. The kit had to get me started, be a good value for the money, and allow me to grow into other projects as my skills progressed. I narrowed my choices to three different kits, and after carefully weighing my options, I chose to purchase the Ultimate Arduino Microcontroller Pack. This decision was mainly because it got me through the most tutorials and gave me plenty of components to “mess around” with as I learned. Additionally, I didn’t just want to get started, I wanted to keep going and make some really cool stuff!
