ProCodeCG Family Coding Crash Course Day #1 – 21 Nov 2016


Today we started the first day of Family Coding Crash Course on Arduino πŸ™‚ These are Sadid and Razin, they are brothers and they are so interested in coding πŸ™‚


On the left, Pak Bullit Sesariza (the uncle, who are an expert in programming) and on the right is Pak Budi Rahardjo, one of the mentor of today πŸ™‚


The course will be from Mon – Fri. We only had these two for Monday and Tuesday but their mom and aunt will join us on Wednesday and Thursday.

The first thing to do was to download and install the latest version of Arduino Software πŸ™‚


Then we do the Blink test to on board Arduino LED.

WeΒ learned about breadboard, resistor (and how to calculate the value) and Β LED, and then we connected Arduino to a breadboard with LED an resistor and made it blink πŸ™‚


Then we add more LEDs and resistors πŸ™‚

It was supposed to be 8 LED but the breadboard was too small, only 4 LEDs fit πŸ™‚


After Sadid and Razin got the LEDs blinking (in one way and many ways), we use a LED module

ProCodeCG LED, which is a hassle-free way to play with LED (without having to deal with those jumpers and resistors LOL)


The previous code uploaded to Arduino worked right away (notice that only 4 LEDs activated :))


We had a great time


3 hours flew very fast πŸ˜€ It wasn’t enough πŸ™‚

We will learn how to use button and RGB LED tomorrow πŸ™‚
