Since I’ve never built a circuit IN MY LIFE! I decided to start the assignment by a simple application without using an Arduino.
I thought I was done with the project and everything was rainbows and butterflies until I received my own Arduino on Wednesday!!! Ever since then, I've been trying to figure out what it actually does and how it works. After many many many youtube videos I finally decided to remove everything from the breadboard and try the Arduino out.
I'm constantly getting an error message saying “Not in Sync Resp=0x00” which is driving me insane! Especially that my assignment is due in 9 hours.
After screaming into my pillow for a couple of minutes, I decided to go on THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE, which is very useful and turns out I have to download something in the ‘Board Manager’ so I can find this specific Arduino in order to code and actually use it.
Unfortunately, I have a problem with the ports on my MacBook, which is a common problem when connecting the Arduino.
