Have  you seen the new topic created that discuses Arduino on line simulators? It might be an idea that a video be made showing the Wokwi Arduino simulator and it uses in trying out new projects. I would like to hear your views on the subject,

I've looked at a few of these, including Wokwi.  I was considering doing an episode reviewing them, although so far, I haven't found one that really thrilled me.

Still, it's a great suggestion (and it was when it was first suggested about half a year ago), and I will accept it!

I will look forward to a review on Wokwi, and could you  possibly answer this question. Why is it that you can put a LED directly across the supply and ground, effectively passing infinite current without destroying the LED. Is it a shortcoming of the software. When you do this with the Tinkercad simulator the LED  is shown to be destroyed. There mat be a few other discrepancies between on line simulators and real world circuit builders that can be unsettling. I have been examining  many of the  example Wokwi files and found users have discovered features that are not in the original description.

@dronebot-workshop According to @etech_student Wokwi has NO transistors.

First computer 1959. Retired from my own computer company 2004.
Hardware - Expert in 1401, and 360, fairly knowledge in PC plus numerous MPU's and MCU's
Major Languages - Machine language, 360 Macro Assembler, Intel Assembler, PLI/1, Pascal, C plus numerous job control and scripting languages.
Sure you can learn to be a programmer, it will take the same amount of time for me to learn to be a Doctor.

@zander When I last looked at it, it was missing a LOT of things and seemed like "pre-alpha" software. But that was a while ago; I'll have to check it out.
