If you were dying to learn about Arduinos last September, the place to be would have been Maker Faire, at the Electronics Stage, where my colleague Andrew Terranova taught four crowds of visitors what those handy microcontrollers were all about. If you missed it, good news! We’ve added the video of one of the sessions to the MAKE YouTube channel so you can watch it for yourself.

Andrew covers the concept of microcontrollers, IO pins, pulse-width modulation, and digital vs. analog, then goes through the Arduino UNO board component by component.
(By the way, this is the fourth of four identical sessions, so don’t go looking for the other three…)
