Built my 50 buck robot. Now i need to program the darn thing
. Bought the AVR pocket programmer...http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=9825
I have no prior experience with programming. Can somebody please explain to me the general process of what im doing here.
I got WINAVR, AVRDude, AVR Studio4, and Pony Prong (Which i cant use cause i got a USB programmer)...
Im guessing that i'm taking the written source code (photovore_v1.zip), opening it in one of the mentioned programs, turning it into a language that the AVR pocket programmer understands using one of the mentioned programs? Then, finally flashing the AVR microcontroller?
Has anyone used the AVR pocket programmer while building the $50 robot?
Just wanna know what programs do what in which order?
