Here is the video I made at the conclusion of the Holiday of Internet Lights RoadTest!   Hope you enjoy it!   It was a great learning experience that certainly got me hooked on the world of Arduino and I'm looking forward to learning a lot more!     ...
This post is one my last on the Internet of Holiday Lights RoadTest. It has been quite the journey for me! When I started I barely knew what Arduino was and now I hope I have someone improved on that understanding. First off, thank you so much to the patience and generosity of peteroakes for helping to guide me through many concepts that were completely alien to me.   Please check out my RoadTest Review as well!   My progress through the IOT RoadTest was an interesting one. As a new ...
Slowly working away on my Arduino learning and project for the Internet of Holiday Things RoadTest. Running into some issues on the most basic learning steps such as making an LCD screen work. Maybe you have some suggestions?   I got this LM041 datasheet & application note - Datasheet Archive from peteroakes . It's sturdy built 16x4 display that seems to have weathered the ages quite well.   I went and bought a 10k ohm potentiometer and hooked everything up per the Arduino LCD Tut ...
I've only had a few more days to play with my Arduino and I am loving it! This is my very first time with Arduino so it's definitely been baby steps for me. My next step after running a sketch to control the LED on Pin 13 was connecting up a set RGB LED lights that are individually addressable. Thanks to the help from peteroakes  I was able understand what power requirements I had, and finally got to power something more flashy! I used the Adafruit Neopixel Library and had the lights workin ...
I recently signed up for an electronics "road test" and was grateful to be selected along with 19 other participants to create a holiday lighting project, with help of the following hardware, thanks to Element14, Infineon, and MCM Electronics:   Arduino Uno R3 Arduino Yún Infineon Lighting RGB LED Shield   Today I finally got my hands on the following hardware (it had been waiting in an UPS store since Friday) and was able to unbox it.   First impressionsArduino Uno R3 I ...
