We'll be getting hands on and making blinky stuff, just in time for the holidays!

The arduino IDE was a great tool to get started with, but once your project gets bigger and you're dealing with multiple files and boards.

Prosper Van has created a cool project to teach you how to use the Platform.io IDE add-on here: https://www.hackster.io/64018/intro-to-platformio-with-neopixel-23d4f4

PlatformIO is an IDE plugin for Atom or VScode, both of which are very flexible text editors.

The project demonstrates adding libraries and different boards, as well as how to then compile and upload sketches to the boards.

This meetup has homework. Before coming:

*Install either VSCode or Atom.

*Install Platform.io.

Note: we'll also be demonstrating our Walabot projects from last month!
