It's been quiet here. To start adding content to this Arduino community I've installed the latest stable Arduino IDE on my five year old computer.
For anybody with a microcontroller board who wants to follow along; the process of installing the IDE from the official site is similar to installing most software from the internet.
If I tried writing a tutorial I'd probably skip something important so here is the best YouTube tutorial video I could fine.
So, now I am ready to start creating some Arduino project posts soon.
