i bought myself a uno today and i have to say. worlds a differance. i have a list of what the pins are (for the most part) and seems like all the examples work flawlessly with this one. now to learn how to code from scratch smiley-grin

when i sed i saw them for $100, that was when i first started seeing them years ago. yea the prices came down significantly. but the whole only $16 shocked me enough to buy it.

here is the link *turns out it was called the nano*

So iv been seeing these Arduino boards around and noticing some very handy projects come from them. so i decided to give them a try myself.
compared to other micro controllers these are considered super easy to learn. however.

i'm not the best of students.
i decided to go cheap and bought the cheapest Arduino i could find. seeing them on average for $100 and than seeing the Arduino Micro for only $16
i hopped on that deal!

however considering i don't know how to program one. i loaded up some examples. and noticed just about ALL of them used pins that the Micro didn't have.
i attempted to re-program a new pin that was on the micro but it almost never worked.

Should i buy a different Arduino to learn on? maybe the Uno? it seems to be the most popular.

also if anyone knows of a good video tutorial series i wouldn't mind watching!
