    @activate124 It’s actually a variation of Processing, but it has similarities with python

    @NinjaRiCe47 I don’t know much about Arduino, but from a glance it looks like a variation of Python.

    @xani666 yeah I …
    @xani666 yeah I know – When I’m ready to move something over from arduino to C though, I usually do so on a separate atmega chip, since the arduino is expensive compared to the atmega chip – no reason to waste it when you aren’t using it for its feature set ๐Ÿ™‚

    @sciguy14 firmware …
    @sciguy14 firmware on atmega chip is just a bootloader to upload compiled program to rest of the chip flash memory, you can put compiled C (or any other programming language) programs on arduinio board, using for example avrdude to program it (which is used internally by arduino anyway.

    So even if someone “outgrows” arduino programming language, the board can still be used with avr-gcc or any other programming language

    @xani666 right, …
    @xani666 right, thanks for the clarification. What I should have said was that you can run C-code on the atmega chip, but the atmega on arduinos already has the arduino firmware on it, which allows you to run the arduino programming language.

    @sciguy14 …
    @sciguy14 underlying programming language IS C, arduinio is based on C (it uses gcc-avr as it’s baceknd). But ypu can’t write “typical” AVR C code in it, because register names (like DDRA, PORTB etc.) are undefined.

    could you teach me to do that thing with your hands to show what you need and then they magically appear? it looks great and if you possibly could do it with a six foot flexible and busty blonde…
    no thank you ๐Ÿ˜‰

    @NinjaRiCe47 The progamming language is not too similar to C. It’s more comparable to processing. You do not need to be fluent in programming.

    Great video, I am fairly new to Arduino so looking forward to these videos when they arrive. I want to create some kind of weather station with mine.
