I just bought my first Arduino which is an UNO and I haven't done anything with it other than...


If you didn't already have the Arduino, I'd say have a look at one of the kits below.  They give you a bit of an introduction to electronics and programming, and step you through a variety of beginning projects.  Even so, go to the links below and check out the manuals that come with the kits.  Go through the setup part then try the first project for starters, which is just blinking an LED, but to get there you will learn the basics you need for other projects.  OTOH, you could go for a kit anyway.  Having two Arduinos is not a bad deal, these things are sort of like potato chips.

Have fun, good luck, let us know when you have that LED blinking!
