Class 0: Introduction and Setup

Covers: What the AVRs are, what all the pins do, what they can do for you. A brief tour of the toolchain, and getting your firmware up and running on the chip. Reading the datasheets. How to make chips speak digital to the outside world, pin-by-pin. Just enough C programming fundamentals to make it work.

Lab: Building the kit and running a test LED flasher.
