    I'm an electronics rookie, but man these things look so cool. I'm ordering up an UNO beginners kit to get started and an Electronics For Dummies ebook to start figuring out what the different components do.

    Just wondering if anyone else ever has messed with these.

    Not yet. I've been considering it for some time. What programming language does it use?

    I think it is proprietary to the system, but based on C++?

    Cross-platform - The Arduino software runs on Windows, Macintosh OSX, and Linux operating systems. Most microcontroller systems are limited to Windows.

    Simple, clear programming environment - The Arduino programming environment is easy-to-use for beginners, yet flexible enough for advanced users to take advantage of as well. For teachers, it's conveniently based on the Processing programming environment, so students learning to program in that environment will be familiar with the look and feel of Arduino

    Open source and extensible software- The Arduino software and is published as open source tools, available for extension by experienced programmers. The language can be expanded through C++ libraries, and people wanting to understand the technical details can make the leap from Arduino to the AVR C programming language on which it's based. SImilarly, you can add AVR-C code directly into your Arduino programs if you want to.


    I've never written any programming before, but this seems like an ideal platform to learn a lot of different things at once. Electronics, programming, prototyping, etc.

    Bump!

    I got a bunch of Nanos about a month ago, and I'm not quite sure what I want to do with them. I figured I'd ask my cousin when he shows up for Christmas, but he's not going to make it, so fuck him.

    Anything awesome to do with them?

    I've been keeping up with the community, but it seems like most people already know what they're doing, and the beginner projects are all lame
