Arduino For Beginners: Introduction and Related Articles

To Introduce Arduino in my language (if I am not wrong), it is a microcontroller with its own sophisticated and easy to use programming language and with open-source hardware and IDE. By using Arduino, you can build large and complex electronics projects (Like robots, toy helicopters, etc) with less pain.

Ubuntu (possibly Debian and other Ubuntu based Linux) users can conveniently install Arduino IDE from Repositories through Software center(recommended) or Package manager or by entering $ sudo apt-get install arduino in terminal. Others can download it from Arduino website.

Open-source hardware means that all the schematics of an Arduino board are available freely and you are free to make your own board by buying individual components and soldering yourself. Although, consider to buy the board from Arduino store so as to support the continuous development of the project.

Arduino is powered via USB port. It can be directly powered via system's USB port for on system applications. However, for portable applications Arduino can also be powered by a 9V battery by using 9V battery adapter.

Recently while I was trying to learn about Arduino, I have found a few interesting articles on the web which better explained the basics of Arduino for a complete beginner. Here they are:
