Digital bartender. Arduino project for adult beginners in electronics. Part 1

I have a lot of friends. Young men, middle-aged men and of course ladies of all ages. Probably all. It is difficult to determine the age of the modern woman. Yes, and not very desirable.

So. The children of my friends and acquaintances to the best of their ability, I take electronics. Build little robots, beetles, fireflies of all sorts, and even lightsabers. Children almost always work and of course, they run to brag about animated electronics parents. And so over and over again. But one day one of my friends, looking for another surge of pride in his daughter says – I want to delve into this electronics and programming, and maybe even something to solder. No question. Let me show you how to build a robot on a wheeled platform. Will travel along the strip on the floor. Or game will do, Python for example, or just pomogaem LEDs, or … went Through many examples. It turns out if for beginners, all some baby, if not for children, it is absolutely not for beginners. Something is wrong! Need lessons for BEGINNERS, ADULTS electronics. Let it be – digital bartender or a machine for mixing cocktails.

Is he… in the stomach.


If we consider this fact and should give due consideration to this information, it can literally change our lives. Did you ever think of such expressions as “gut feel,” or “a strange feeling in the stomach”, the Americans have, for example, the expression “feel butterflies in my belly (stomach)” which passed in our language. We say “butterflies in the stomach”, meaning a kind of excitement, sometimes the feeling of love. No, in the end, says – “the elbow I feel” or “butterflies in the gallbladder”.
