Hello everyone, Welcome to my Blog. In this blog, I will share all the basics information Arduino IDE. In my previous Blog#1, I discussed the basics parts of Arduino UNO.

The Arduino Integrated Development Environment is the primary text editing software used to program Arduino. The Integrated Development Environment effectively converts your logic and compiles them into code that Arduino can understand.  If your Arduino code has been compiled it is then added to the memory of the board.

Requirement for Arduino IDE

  • Arduino Uno
  • USB B Cable
  • Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, Mac, or Linux OS
  • Arduino Integrated Development Environment
  • About 20 minutes

You have to first download the arduino IDE And then install smoothly.

Now start developing something and become freindly to this new environment

Programming in Arduino

  • Press ctrl+N for a new page
  • Staring writing code in the Void setup (). For know how to write code in this { }click here LED blinking program for Arduino UNO
  • After writing code in the setup function then comes to the Loop section().
  • After putting your all the logics in the Ide then you would have to save the program for saving the program press ctrl+S
  • For checking the logic and syntax of your program you have to compile the program. For compiling comes to the sketch section which is placed in the menu bar the comes to the compile and verify section.
  • After successful compilation now its time to upload the program


For several reasons, the Arduino is a strong prototyping instrument, including its lack of a dedicated programmer, its large variety of libraries available, and the simplicity of its Integrated Development Environment.

In this project, though we only have a light to blink, you can expect much more in the future.

Try to interface with screens, take measurements, chat on the internet, and maybe even work with AI!
