Tutorial 1: Getting Started

Getting started with the Arduino can be an intimidating undertaking for those who aren't already familiar with the device. I've created a series of tutorials that help you get started with Arduino. In this tutorial I show you how to download the Arduino IDE and upload your very first sketch to the Arduino Uno. This is your 'Hello World!' tutorial.

void loop() {
  Serial.println("Hello World!") ;
