Arduino Uno Unleashed - How to Get Started With Arduino Uno Programming

Arduino Unleashed.

This is a new series I decided to introduce as part of my tutorials.

In each post we'll deal with one Arduino/Arduino Compatible board with simple steps that can get you started even if you are a complete beginner.

Warning:
This instructable is NOT for experts.

If you want to learn Arduino then you need to get your hands busy. So Let's get started.

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: ​Start by Programming the Arduino Uno Board.

Programming

What you need:

Arduino Uno Board

Amazon , eBay , Banggood , Aliexpress

USB Cable

Arduino IDE (download and setup on your computer)

Step 2: ​Your First Example LED Blink (Hello Embedded World)

I know this is so primitive but if you are a beginner this is really rewarding.

If you manage to blink an LED in one system then you can do anything else.

Open Arduino IDE. From the menu choose ….

Tools -- Board -- Arduino Uno

Then

File – Examples – Basics – Blink.

Then you can see the code that blinks the built in LED in your Arduino board.

Choose menu

File – Upload

Now you can see the LED in Arduino board blinking at a constant rate.

Congratulations.

You have completed the very first Arduino lesson.

Stay tuned to many other lessons.
