Hi all, my name is Giovanni Giorgi, I am a 37 years old software architect (mostly a Java guru).I have discovered Arduino a month ago. I have never used breadbords, leds and so on. It was simply too difficult to do stuff, coded them and then test.Arduino is very easy to use, and I was able to do a small proximity sensor after only two hours of study, trial and errors.Aduino rocks because it is well balanced: coding and assempling the device is a two-phase activity, and it is split very well. It is easy to understand how to assembly a circuit, and then how to control it.C++ is not my preferred languages, but I have found plenty of libraries on the Playground.The Arduino ecosystem is the very added-value: Arduino is easier to code then other stuff I have seen (also in pure IT field).Also the hardware is very pluggable: you can buy sensors, servo and assembly them in a very fast way.You can go from an idea to a prototype in minutes, and this rocks!
So tell us something we don't already know. Just kidding, welcome aboard the forum.
Glad you ask! I have started to write some basic tutorials. They are in italian, but I plan to do some others in english:http://gioorgi.com/tag/arduino/Bye
@daitango, I was able to read some of that, with Google Chrome's help... Interesting stuff about library development.Next year I'll be moving to Genoa, so I will need to practice more my Italian-Geek-Arduino phrases May I link to your tutorials? My site is http:/yourduino.com and I hope to link to tutorials in a few languages.. Chinese will be one.
