Previous Installations

Before we start...

Here are some instructions you will need to follow, in order to install the needed software for the second week of the workshop.


The open-source Arduino Software (IDE) makes it easy to write code and upload it to the board. This software can be used with any Arduino board, or others.

In the next link you will fin the instruction to download different versions of the Arduino IDE, depending of your computer operating system.

There is also a web-version of the IDE, but the software one that runs on your computer is more stable.
