Tested In-Depth: Getting Started with Arduino


Our friends from Tested have released Know Your Arduino: A Practical Guide to The Most Common Boards. The guide is accompanied by a 30-minute video, below, with Will and Norm, where they show boards ranging from the Mini to the Mega, and then demo specific applications like gaming on the Esplora or driving the recently released Arduino Robot. In the video they also demo a 4-digit 7-segment display countdown timer to inform podcast announcers when their time is up, and give a momentary glance at the Galago, among other goodies. If you’ve already built a pulse sensor pendant, knock knock calculator, or robot percussion band, you’re probably already familiar with most of what’s talked about in the guide. Familiar or not, as I did this morning it’s the perfect video to stream while making an omelette!

And the nice thing about [Arduino] is…you learn how to do one thing, and then that’s in your wheelhouse forever. Then you add things and add things, and soon you have a pretty good skill set, and a much better understanding of how all of this stuff works.
