Beginners: Start Here

Welcome to Breakout Bros. We strive to be the best source for hobby electronics. In order for you to learn the most from us we need to figure out how much you already know and what you want to learn. If you want to know more about our philosophy check out our About us page.

If you don’t know what a micro-controller is, or what it does please check out our article on [The Arduino Revolution]

If you do know what an Arduino is but you don’t have one yet, we recommend getting a starter kit.  We want beginners to have things to do with their new microcontrollers right away. The point of I/O is the ability to interact with things and programming without this feedback is dull. One of the great things about Arduino is that it is an open source platform so there are a lot of generic (or knock off) versions out there.  These are at a much lower cost than the original but quality can very wildly so we will only recommend kit’s we’ve used ourselves. Please check out our reviews of Arduino Starter Kits.

If you already have an Arduino and want to learn how to use it, check out our Tutorials section. Here you will find step by step instructions on how to build and program for different sensors and output devices.

If you want ideas for things you can build follow along with us in our Projects section where we are always building something new. Make sure you Subscribe so you are eligible to win the projects when we are done with them.

Lastly stick around for our Reviews. We look at sensors, screens, shields, and accessories for many platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, PSoC, NTC’s CHIP, and more.

Like always, feel free to ask us anything in the comments!
