Fun with Node.js and Arduino

Get yourself an Arduino or Espruino. Do it. Then get started with the nodebot workshop. And then find a Nodebots meetup near you.

Install nodebot workshop globally:

npm i -g nodebot-workshop

Then start doing some tuts with Johnny Five, Nodeschool and node-ardx.

I bought a few kits from Amazon for not much at all which include LEDs, sensors, resistors et al.
