How to use this site
This site is based on our popular book Learn Arduino with the Arno (you can still get a hard copy of our book, too). Like our book, this site provides all the information a beginner needs to start using Arduino. The site has four main sections:
- Electronics: You need to understand electronics to really use Arduino. Visit this section to learn the basic principles of electricity, the functions of common electronic components, and how the circuits on the Arno board work.
- Programming: A program (or sketch) is the set of instructions that are executed by the Arduino microcontroller. Visit this section to learn the basics of the Arduino programming language including how to store and use information, how to control circuits, and how to communicate between the Arno and a PC or other electronic devices.
- Projects: The Projects section pulls together our understanding of electronics and programming to make things happen! Each project is designed to highlight different aspects of electronics and programming to equip you with the knowledge you need to create your own projects. The Project pages have special functions that make it easier than ever to learn Arduino. Take a tour of the Project pages in the video below.
- References: Take a closer look under the hood of the Arno board by looking at the pin key and Arno schematic. This section also includes a project index to help you find projects that use different programming concepts.
The pages in the Projects section have special features to make it easier to learn Arduino with your Arno. Check out this video to learn more about these features.
