A tag is a keyword or label that categorizes your question with other, similar questions. Using the right tags makes it easier for others to find and answer your question.
A programming language and an IDE based on Java, but with simplified syntax and graphics programming model.
An Integrated Development Platform for programming and debugging various Atmel microcontrollers including AVRs (which are used in many Arduino boards).
This should be used when referring to the transmission protocol TCP/IP.
for questions relating to computer software used for interaction with the Arduino. For example, you could use this tag for questions about programming environments, or you could use it f…
The program code stored/running on an embedded device. The term is sometimes used interchangeably with "software".
a simple protocol for serial communication between electronic devices.
a programming language used primarily for numerical computations. Use this tag for questions regarding communicating or using MATLAB with Arduino. Also consider using other tags such as [pro…
