Arduino 101 - Getting Blinky

Overview

 

Prerequisites

		
Install the Arduino IDE on your PC 
    https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software
    Allow the installer to setup the driver for the Arduino
    The IDE installer a bit hefty in terms of file size and run time, so please download and run it before the class.


Install third party libraries and examples
    In the IDE, File -> Preferences -> Additional Boards Manager URLs:
        https://adafruit.github.io/arduino-board-index/package_adafruit_index.json
        'Okay'
        add 'Adafruit NeoPixel' library 

            Sketch -> Include Library -> Manage Libraries -> type 'NeoPixel' into the search filter

            Click the 'Install' button for the latest 'Adafruit NeoPixel by Adafruit' entry.

            tyr to keep the board to one type 

    Arduino LED 'Hello World'
        In the IDE, select
            Examples -> 02 Digital -> Blink without delay
            Select 'Tools' -> Board -> Arduino/Genuino Uno
            Then  'Tools' -> Port -> whatever port the Arduino shows up as on the PC (COM9 or similar).  See the DeviceManager if you are not sure.

    RGB LED Strip

        TODO: - get a neopixel pinout image

        Connect the Strip to the Arduino

        In the IDE select
            Sketch -> Include Library -> Adafruit NeoPixel
            File -> Examples -> Adafruit NeoPixel -> starndtest
