Chapter 9 of the Tutorial Kit Manual promise to deliver an introduction to the basics of programming in Arduino C. Where the previous chapter clocked in at a modest seven pages, this one covers 90! So I'll not be tackling it in one go, I guess.
So, having established that the board works, it's time to embark on learning how to program it.
"Open the box/Open the box/Open the goddam box!"
"Hello, good evening, and welcome/To nothing much/A no holds barred Half Nelson /And the loving touch/The comfort and the joy/Of feeling lost."
