Hi Everyone,

My name is John, I live in north Queensland, Australia.

I am a retired electrician and felt I needed something to keep my brain active during retirement so purchased an Arduino Uno.

In a nutshell, I have no idea about programing or microprocessors, but after doing a couple of simple projects, ( flashing an LED on and off), I am quite keen on learning more.

So far I have been copying the sketches line for line so I can build up an idea of the programing language and syntax.

Still a long way to go, but looking forward to the journey.

If by 'copying' you mean keying in the code, it's just a matter of time before you begin to learn that most valuable skill called troubleshooting. Most new folks use copy and paste.

 

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, PL/I and PL1, Pascal, Basic, C plus numerous job control and scripting languages.
My personal scorecard is now 1 PC hardware fix (circa 1982), 1 open source fix (at age 82), and 2 zero day bugs in a major OS.
