Hello all !
Good to see an Indian community here
I am from Hyderabad. I googled for a few guides on starting up, but none easy enough for me ! Recently I passed my engineering with Computer-Science background, with an unknown fear of electornics
Got to come across Arduino, while working on http://mqtt.org/
; and find the applications exciting. I am good with the programming part, but can't guess :
1. What hardware to buy ? What is the minimal kit I should start with ? If possible, please suggest where to buy too... reading all about the types of boards is deviating my efforts.
2. I tried 2 simulators for checking the basic "LED blinking" examples - but none got working. Should I spend more time on simulator, or I should move to hardware ?
3. Is there a chance that I blow up the Arduinos while learning ? (I need to prepare myself financially for this)
In summary, I want to have a quick start with Arduino, with results to keep me motivated.
