Chapter 2. The Arduino Way
The Arduino philosophy is based on making designs rather than talking about them. It is a constant search for faster and more powerful ways to build better prototypes. We have explored many prototyping techniques and developed ways of thinking with our hands.
Classic engineering relies on a strict process for getting from A to B; the Arduino Way delights in the possibility of getting lost on the way and finding C instead.
This is the tinkering process that we are so fond of—playing with the medium in an open-ended way and finding the unexpected. In this search for ways to build better prototypes, we also selected a number of software packages that enable the process of constant manipulation of the software and hardware ...
