Meet the Arduino
Physical computing, open hardware and all that buzz.
1. What is the Arduino
By now, you probably have asked yourself what Arduino is, or seen a cool project online. After all, it is on the course title!
Arduino today is not just a single piece of technology, but an open platform that helps creative minds, makers, hobbyists, students and teachers, absolute beginners and professional researchers build interactive electronics projects. It is a paradigm that brought programming and physical computing, fields normally associated with electrical engineering and computer science, closer to everyone.
