Arduino

Our first workshop of Arduino started with installation from the repo. In Ubuntu:

apt-get install arduino

This is a solution in case you install it from the arduino Website and you find the ‘Serial Port’ option disabled.  Today we were using Arduino Uno for the experience.

Our first little example was based in led intermittent game, this is how it was look like:

void setup( ) 
{
   pinMode(13, OUTPUT)
}

void loop( ) {
   digitalWriter(13,HIGH);
   delay(1000);
   digitalWriter(13,LOW);
   delay(500);
}

The example showed above is working with the button component which is doing his labor as a switch in order to turn on/off the led.  You need to have a knowledge about the GND and what kind of resistance you required, in this case we used 330 because of the 5v, and other of 1000 ohmios for the button.

In the picture above, Michael and Giohanny are using Arduino and Linux: Ubuntu/GNOME.

@cramonn also part of our gruop, is using a MAC computer and Ruby as a language:

arduino and ruby

Now, we are in a round 24×2 and we are planning to develop an App Web and module that can interact NodeJS with Python/Django, Javascript using Arduino. I hope to finish another post with good news and successful results in a couple of hours.

    Hey guys, you should also check out http://codebender.cc an online, install-free alternative to the sometimes weird Arduino IDE.
