• Second day with Arduino

    I got some LED's and hooked up the potentiometer sketch from yesterday to a 5mm white LED and a 1k resistor to make it dimmable. The code was uploaded from the Arduino Examples, 03.Analog>AnalogInOutSerial and I followed along this video by Afrotechmods.

    So after many years of procrastination, I have finally taken the time to sit down and start learning Arduino. I bought an Arduino Uno starter kit (Geekcreit) almost 5 years ago and it has been sitting around gathering dust. Hackaday.io seems like a great platform to document my journey, so here we go!

    This video by eTech Tom was a great introduction to understanding the basics of bread-boarding using an Arduino. I then watched this video and ran my first Arduino sketch using the 01.Basics>AnalogReadSerail example sketch in the Arduino IDE with a B10K potentiometer.
