Arduino is a development tool made of two parts – hardware and software. Arduino reads an input from a variety of sources – a press of a button, a change of temperature measured by a thermistor, an interaction on a webpage – and then performs a desired output.

The hardware is the physical electronics of an Arduino board such as the microcontroller and the input and outputs. A microcontroller is a miniature computer contained in a single computer chip. Software tells the microcontroller what to do and is written using the Arduino programming language. The Integrated Development Environment (IDE) is a software tool that allows you to write code and export it to your Arduino board – the IDE is both free and easy to use.
