Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform and apt for developers, students, enthusiasts and anyone interested creating projects or innovations out of it. Arduino boards are very popular among Do it yourself (DIY) enthusiasts too and its ability to get connected with sensors and other components of various makes his miniaturized computer the most preferred for Internet of things based projects.
Arduino programming language is used to code the micro-controller on the board. Its user friendly and robust development tool kit or the IDE helps you create sketches and upload them to the board in order to get the best use of it. All the required coding constructs and support is available on the open platform forums and one can easily start working on projects and no previous experience is required
Ingredients to get started with Arduino:
- Arduino AdaFruit P/N 50 or sparkfun P/N DEV- 11021
