Mike Magnuson N7ETA1, will introduce us to the world of Arduino! He will cover the basics of the microprocessor and the accessories and parts that are available. He will introduce us to the IDE, the Integrated Development Environment, and he will share a project or two of interest to hams. Be there to learn about this flexible, useful technology! Working with Arduino is an excellent way to learn about microcontrollers.
What is an Arduino?
Arduino is an open-source platform used for building electronics projects. Arduino consists of both a physical programmable circuit board (often referred to as a microcontroller) and a piece of software, or IDE (Integrated Development Environment) that runs on your computer, used to write and upload computer code to the physical board.
