The good thing with an Arduino, is that the learning cuve is not that steep.

If you have got basic knowledge in physics and just a basic understanding of how to code, you may get some results pretty quickly.
That is because we are working rather close to bare metal and control everything directly.

With more elaborated systems like a Raspberry Pi under Linux you must have digested so much conventions, and rules before you ever can begin to code, that you get stuck very fast to nothing more than printing stuff on the console.

That advantage turns also to be our problem, since many noobs get more stuff done here and gets appetite, but are still noobs.

I just read back across this thread - and realised...
For the 20,000 newbies on the forum, vs the 2000 old lags...

The lags have wrtitten far more than 10x the volume of advice than the newbies have considered and posted questions.  It should be the othe way around.

This suggests the newbies are not reading / can't read, don't understand or aren't interested in learning/understanding...  Wrong hobby for some of them.

My footer says a lot.
