I don't understand. The point of the tutorial is to teach you what you need to understand. Have you tried working through it, but have some specific problem?

OK, when I started the very first thing that I did was followed and actually completed in real life (as opposed to just reading) Newbie's Guide to AVR Timers tutorial (very useful). After that, I carried on with Newbie's Guide to the AVR ADC tutorial. After them two tutorials, I had quite a good clue of how microcontroller programming works.

Other useful resources:
