mmwa: the arduino programming
The “MMwA: The Arduino Programming” is where I teach everything about the Arduino programming! I’ll teach how to write your own code, how I have written my codes, and how you can understand other people’s codes.
This will take your maker skills to the next level. It will allow you to create anything that comes to your mind. I’ll teach you the Arduino programming language while I focus everything on making music!
