Course Curriculum


In this introductory lecture, I'll talk a little bit about the Arduino, what it is, how it came to be, and why it is important.

I am also going to show you the gadget that you will build as you go through the course. This gadget, which I call JING (not an acronym!) will take readings for temperature, humidity, barometric pressure and light intensity from the room in which you happen to put it, and record the data on a free web service on the Internet, from where you will be able to look at them as graphs.

What parts will you need to complete this course? Here's a shopping list

All sketches used in this course are available for download from my Github account.

And, here is a very handy pin-out diagram for the Arduino Uno.
