Verifying and Uploading

Taking this concept of sketching to heart by tossing together some lines of code that we are still not fully up to speed on, we’ve got a sketch entered into the Arduino development environment and we think we have all the syntax and statements correct, but now what? In the last chapter, we blindy uploaded our first sketch full of confidence, but how do we know if the code we entered will work or not before uploading it to the Arduino board? To answer these questions, let’s revisit uploading our sketch to the Arduino board, looking a little closer at the verifying and uploading process, including how to save your sketches and some of the common errors we might run into.


As mentioned earlier, it is always a good ...
