Warning: this page is a nearly-completely incomplete skeleton. For the class (and supporting materials) that actually came to be, see AVR Microcontroller Class. This section needs a lot of development, so if you're in the mood please feel free.

There's a lot of good information out there about programming micro-controllers, but I couldn't find a good, stepwise, lesson-based tutorial. Since a bunch of the HacDC folks are just learning their way around, I thought it'd be fun to put together a mini-course based on the Atmel AVR platform and GNU-GCC. The idea is to have each lesson doable in an hour or so

What follows is a mix of how-to and code snippets and peoples' experience walking through it all. If you're following along and want to contribute, feel free.
