Hello there fellow internet users.
a friend and I thought it would be neat to set up an automatic aquarium using a micro controller, and gravitated toward the Ardunino Uno, which we bought. As we started to really look into it, we realized we have no idea what we are doing. At all. My friend is very familiar with electronics and aquariums, and I'm a moderate python programmer (nothing to fancy). But when we start getting into shields and sensors and all that good stuff, we're lost. I have the board, the cord, and the drivers installed, I understood the java that got the light to blink, and started messing around with it, but I have no idea where to progress from there. Help? please?
