Programming (where can I learn the basics)
« on: April 25, 2010, 04:13:04 AM »
Hey guys, I'm making a robot for a school project, its gonna have 4 wheels, be controlled from my computer via bluetooth, and maybe have an arm or 2. I might simplify it if it proves too complex. I'm new to programming, so, my question is, can someone give me a site where I can learn the basics of programming? I'm probably gonna use an AVR microcontroller, if that helps.

This maybe?

The links from the thing might help too.
Sorry if this doesn't help. I don't know much about bluetooth or programming either.

One of the most commonly used languages to program AVRs is C.  Here's the first site that popped up on google.

C programming isn't that hard, it's all formatting.  Try to look at the tutorials on that site, then ask questions here. 

Here's that site's C tutorial..

I read through a little of it, it seems pretty good.

EDIT:  You need to learn how to program in C before you even think about programming an AVRs.  I would simply trying to run programs on the computer before you try to make a robot do anything.

Since you're a student, you can go to this website...

to download visual studio.  This will let you make C programs and run them on your computer.
