We’re continuing with our “Arduino for Absolute Beginners” series, which has so far covered the installation and testing of a Nano board (HERE), as well as the major components of the Arduino IDE and an introduction to using the Serial Monitor for debugging (HERE). This entry covers important syntax, introduces functions and re-usability of code, and we start working with breadboards. ALSO! I asked my buddy Cola from eMakeFun if we could have a coupon for a component pack which included a breadboard and he delivered! We’ll un-box the eMakeFun Electronic Components Start Kit.
I wanted to share something I’ve had on the back burner for a little while – Sonoff smart switches – both the basic switch and the fan controllers. A few weeks back, I got the itch to start monkeying with them.
