    Hi,

    I've been checking out the Arduino stuff and I'm really excited. I figured I'd start this thread of helpful links for complete noobs like me.

    Can we try make this a links only thread. By avoiding discussions about actual programming I think people will be less intimidated. Going onto a build thread with guys talking about sketches and lines of code etc. when you don't have a clue can make one feel out of your depth.

    I read through the users agreements etc of the forum and I don't think there's any violation of it by posting retailers web addresses. If there is an issue with this, my apologies and we can get rid of them. I have had no dealings with any of the companies.

    Arduino home:

    Arduino - HomePage

    I got these on the i-store (I'm sure any OS has them available)

    Arduino Campanion - Free
    GettingStartedWithArduino - By Massimo Banzi - think it was 4$ - Really recommend this. Good sense of humour and is proud that engineers think it's too simple. Great for confidence that you won't blow yourself up.


    Local distributers (taken from the official Arduino site):

    Netram Technologies - Distributors of Arduino, Netduino and specialised prototyping hardware!
    Yebo Electronics
    Robotics Store - South Africa (Arduino Distributor)

    Local sites (googled- not a thorough list by any means):

    Temperatur and Humidity Acquisition - Toptronic (PTY) Ltd T/A AP ELECTRONICS
    South Trader - Electronics for Everyone
    Hobbytronics. Arduino (Official)

    Hardware links:
