Advice for a noob

I just got my Arduino Mega last week.

I'm a complete noob at any of this.

I have been going through the lessons here: http://www.ladyada.net/learn/arduino/index.html

Any other links / advice on learning how to program it?

There are a ton of tutorial books out there and a bunch of free tutorials online. Go to Amazon, type in "C for Arduino" and look at your options and read the reviews. I'm horribly biased, but Beginning C for Arduino is my book and it has fairly good reviews. Simon Monk's book (Getting Started with Sketches) is also very good. Still, read the reviews and make up your own mind, or just stick with the freebies on line.

Hope you enjoy the trip!

Thanks for the advice. I picked up “Beginning C for Arduino”.
