Learn to program Arduino using the ATtiny85, a $2 chip that's perfect for simple projects. You'll receive your own Tiny Programmer ($20) which uploads your code to the chip, and your first ATtiny85.
We'll cover basic Arduino syntax, controlling LEDs, and using a photocell as a sensor. You'll also learn about the best online resources for teaching yourself more Arduino.
***The ATtiny85 is the same chip that powers boards like the Trinket and the Gemma. To learn more about making your own wearable Arduino with the ATtiny85, check out my instructable (pictured above).***
