Beginner projects


(Jeff Wimer ) #1

I was supposed to receive my machine today. I am both excited and apprehensive. I just want to say thank-you in advance for any help you, the forum community, will provide to me.

How hard would it be for the community to put together some beginner projects that a novice could run in order to learn about their machine. Simple projects like a tic-tac-toe game, a maze, a map, etc. a dozen or so of these projects would be great to share on this board for someone just getting started.

Hopefully the admin could create a space for some projects.
