    Arduino 101: Making a LED Blink With a ButtonArduino400
    In my last tutorial, I explained why it is easy to work on electronic projects with Arduino. In this tutorial I will be using an Arduino board to make a simple circuit, one that can turn on a LED light. Using some more basic code I will make the same LED light blink. Finally, I will add a push-button and use it to speed up the blinking. Some of the diagrams in this article were developed using the Fritzing program.Read More…

Dan's example largely relied on the jQuery framework to request data and construct the user interface elements. I decided to write his tutorial all over again with the two exceptions of using GWT instead of jQuery, and a different method of choosing font size variations. Read More…
