    Well, I guess one could think it’s “cheating” in that people that start with the Arduino don’t really know about registers, interrupts, or anything else that someone that started from the electronics/computer side would know. They’re using it as an interface instead of knowing how it works. You can see that in projects that clearly don’t need a microcontroller. There’s nothing wrong with learning programming first and using the Arduino to interface with hardware (I encouraged some friends to sign up for Free Day so I can teach them some electronics), but it’s an incomplete view of microcontrollers and hardware hacking. Is your hobby more CS or ECE? But a good CS student (or hobbyist) should still have the basics of the hardware and the ECE student/hobbyist should know what will be easy to code for and wouldn’t be.

    I’m sure SOMEONE will go negative tomorrow. :)

No public wish lists :(
