Arduino - image of logo

This website is all about the Arduino Uno and how to program and connect hardware to it. I set up the site initially as a private reference for my own use. However, as it seems to be growing quickly, I thought I would make it available on the Internet in case others might find it useful. It is intended for novice users like me, so takes a step-by-step approach and tries to explain in simple terms what's going on. The information applies specifically to the Arduino Uno R3 version but many topics may also apply to other versions too.

Following the falling out of Arduino and its manufacturers, the Arduino still exists with its old name in the USA but has a new name of Genuino in the rest of the world. Until I have time to make the changes, the Arduino name will continue to be used on this website. URLs that contain Arduino will remain unchanged so that existing bookmarks and links will still work.

I have no connection with Arduino and use its logo here as a link to their website.

I use a Windows PC to create the web pages and originally hosted this website on a Pi. However, it is now hosted by Claranet. Read more...

Each of the topics on the left has its own web page that explains the requirement or problem and how to implement or solve it.

The Links section is a list of other websites that I have found useful, either as a source of information or to buy accessories.

If the Arduino isn't your cup of tea, click on over to the Raspberry Pi site where you can find similar information but targeted specifically at the Raspberry Pi. There's a link at the bottom of the navigator on each page so you can come back at any time.


This site is designed to work with the current generation of browsers and I have tested it with IE9, Chrome and Firefox. They are all supposed to conform to web standards and they do to a greater or lesser degree - the thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from! Some older browsers might not be able to display every aspect of the design as it is intended to look, nor some of the special characters. I have deliberately avoided CSS3 features.
