Last Month's Blog Stats

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who stopped by my blog last month. It showed me that people are actually interested in my video tutorials. Most of you who visited came via the sparkfun website. They kindly posted a link to my blog on their news page.

As a result, I have decided that it is worth the time it takes to put together one of these tutorials. So as I learn more stuff I will do my best to present my findings in the form of a short, easy to understand video tutorial.

I've got a few on the way already. Feel free to post feedback on here about them. I don't want to be posting crap. This would be a waste of everyone's time. That said, this is my personal blog so the statement at the top of the page still applies :)

Anyways. Thanks for all your interest so far.

I liked your tutorial on the easy driver and demonstrating the servo driver. I am using the Arduino to teach my self "C" after dabbling with basic and assembler for a number of years.
The low cost IDE and target hardware make this very attractive.

Hi Dan, This is a great blog and your work helps a lot of people to understand the EasyDriver. I am looking for a way to control a stepper forward and backward using two buttons connected to Analog0 and Analog1 of the Arduino. I could not find any code or any info on how to come up with one that would allow me to do that.My EasyDriver is the 4.4.I am hoping to modify a simple code if i learn the magic words. Thanks (

Hi odraude,

This should be fairly simple thing to do(once you know how of coarse :) If you look at the easy driver tutorials on this blog and also the tutorial. You should be able to come up with something on your own.

If you would like to post some of your code in the comments section of the easydriver tutorial, then you may find that people can point you in the right direction. Also try the sparkfun and arduino forums.

Good luck!
