Hi,

Yea....getting a bit long in the tooth, so experience tell us that slower can be quicker in the end. I'm not in too much of a rush (at the moment!)

Uno or Mega for beginner?

Cheers

Uno generally - it's cheaper to replace if you make some electrical error and damage or destroy it. If your planned project is large, needs a large number of pins, or multiple UARTs a mega may be the answer eventually. You may not have the means to tell at this stage though and having an uno around isn't a bad thing.

If you call it incremental development instead, it's a generally accepted practice whether you're a beginner or not  ;)

Very interesting guys about aquarium project seems familiar to me. We have something similar build by students for final project. I am a beginner of programming language C, so I received some suggestions to use this

I would definitely recommend the UNO for a beginner....One, its cheaper and the parts are easy to replace if damaged. The Mega is made for codes with many bytes; it has much storage place, and for a starter, this isn't recommended. Good luck with your future projects, and I hope that this helps!!!!!!!  :D
