I'm new on the forums, I'm a (pre-)starter at this, and I'm interested in learning how to use an Arduino board... I have no specific projects in mind, but they all hover around home automation, receiving commands through the network and maybe using with an Android later
I don't understand the difference between the different Arduino models (I know some have more ports/more memory/faster processor, but I don't really understand how this translates in practice). From what I understand, an Arduino Uno is for novice projects, but an Arduino MEGA can also be used for beginner projects but it's more expensive?
I'm in Canada, probably going to use Solarbotics.com, unless someone has a better suggestion!
The price isn't too important for me, as long as it's expandable.
I heard the Oomlout ARDX kit is a very good starter/intermediate kit (I am looking forward to spending a lot of my free time learning how to use this, maybe I'm too ambitious)http://www.solarbotics.com/product/ardx_na/
And what would you guys suggest as an Arduino board?
If I understand correctly, the ADK Mega supports using the Android ADK programming kits (optionally?). Can you also use the normal programming language? Will I be able to follow the basic Arduino Uno guides?
Thank you very much, everyone. And sorry for the stupid questions!
