Arduino.  Fine, and you?

I have long avoided Arduino, because “that’s hardware stuff”, and I just didn’t get it.  Based on a request from a friend, I looked at it and I just knew I could write the code to get him started.

Turns out I could and I did!

Now I’ve got loads of ideas, partly practical, partly (ok mostly) experimental… I was able to test my code on simuino in a Linux VM, and when we plugged it in to actual hardware, it was great fun!

I have ordered a SainStudio kit for more experimentation.  I’m already looking at how to make my own custom board for an ATmega chip.
