A Small Introduction to Arduino
In 2003 a Colombian student named Hernando Barragán started work on a programming language and IDE which he released in 2004, he called it ‘Wiring’. He crafted it as part of a program at the Interaction Design Institute of Ivrea, in northern Italy, under the supervision of software architect Massimo Banzi. The software was based on ‘Processing’, a language specifically built for visual arts initiated by Casey Reas and Benjamin Fry at the MIT Media Lab. As the project got more ambitious, more members joined the team which now included Massimo Banzi (Italy), David Cuartielles (Spain), Tom Igoe (US), Gianluca Martino (Italy) and David Mellis (US).
