Hi Simon,

You're quite busy promoting Arduino (and Android and Raspberry and ...), I like that. However ....there always is a however ;)

Think you should have learned people using Serial prints first, 
then millis() to simulate a "clock"   
and then you can learn them blink without delay ...

Still, a good initiative!
Rob

Thanks Rob.

The eternal debate - teach good habits from the outset vs. get started with the 'simplest' way and learn the 'best' way later.

I think that delay() is a lazy crutch. Learning to do some things simply/quickly and some things right is possible.

If you are going to discuss delay() in lesson n, then millis() and the right way need to be lesson n+1.
