Programming Help

Hi.

Does anyone have any example programs that I could use to get the hang of Arduino?

There are examples that are installed with the Arduino IDE. If you go trough these and grasp each topic you will get a great footing with this platform. .

What is your background? .

The Arduino IDE software comes with a whole bunch of examples. File -> Examples -> 01.Basics, 02.Digital, etc...

If you only have the board, and no other hardware components to play with, you should look at what's in the starter kit and get at least some of it: breadboard, push buttons, LEDs, resistors, wires.. so you can build some simple circuits and hook up your Arduino to it.

Did you try here? https://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/HomePage

It's the first hit if you google "Arduino Examples"

LarryD: What is your background? .

I have none.

A basic tutorial in C++ would probably be a good thing too. Google can find lots of them.

Thank you for the tips!

I found this very helpful, it explains a number of concepts and breaks the code down into manageable bites (or should that be bytes?)
