Hey everyone,

I just stumble upon this site, while trying to learn more! I am a tech at a low voltage company. I work with access controls panels, cameras and Alarm panels. I also code as a hobby. I love working working with electronic, but there is a world i need to learn. My goal at some point is to get into robotics and micro controllers, but i have a long road a head of me. I have 2 beautiful little girls so school is not an option at the moment, i have to teach my self. If any one knows of any resources or step by step programs that would get a passionate newbie like me there, feel free to share : )
Cheers everyone!

I would start out with an ARDUINO module. A micro controller mounted on a board with voltage regulator and a standard set of input output pins (headers). The headers accept a wide range of "shields" that can plug into those headers - shields are available for many types of sensors, motor drivers, and almost any other possible thing you'll need (want) to get started.

Program with a simple usb cable and free software on a laptop. Many standard libraries of code are available to interface with display shields, motor driver shields, sensor shields, ...

Also there are very helpful forums full of people who know all there is to know about them.
