Topic: From noob to noob How To Make A Binary (or digital) Clock with Arduino (Read 3986 times) previous topic - next topic


 This clock is my first program on Arduino not copied from the internet.  Libraries required me to learn the commands  on top of learning C so I made this from scratch in order to figure out how to do things.  It's not efficient but nothing I've seen over the internet will work on my arduino with my system.  They always have something not compatible with something I'm using and it gives me a headache.
 So this is a weeks worth of learning with full comments (not normal but it should be) explaining what everything does so you can use some of this in your own programs and learn "what does what" as well as "how to do this".  I've even included comments on additions to be made for anyone wanting to take it further.
 We noobs gotta stick together cause we can't learn from someone speaking a language we haven't learned yet right? ...


I'm a super noob too. I really have no idea how to start learning, so I've been reading as much as I can. My main goal is to read an input, convert it to binary, then send 4 binary bits out out on separate pins. I've got a long road ahead of me!  :smiley-roll-sweat:


Please someone guide us to the right path. Any free manual or link to a video will be appreciated. Yes I'm quite in reading a manual so a video might help me.


You don't need a video - go thru the Learning section and try a few things as a starting point.

From nOOb to NooB, if you want learn something just try to do that! Simply you'll never learn anything reading tons of posts or watching video!
