I have looked a few different tutorials to do a simple get the LED to blink.
They all include resistors and I did it exactly like the picture.
I tried it WITHOUT the resistors (ground to the short end of the LED) and it worked perfectly.
I've read in other places that it can cause damage to the LED if you don't use a resistor.
I'm now trying to do a project where you push a button to get the LED to light up (using resistors) but that's not working.
Any advice would be appreciated
