You've got your BreadBro and you're ready to get started learning. Now what? Before you begin, you'll need to download a few things.
First you'll need to download FTDI Chip Drivers for your computer. These drivers allow your computer to communicate with BreadBro, and upload code to its microcontroller. Be sure to download the latest version available for your operating system - BreadBro only uses genuine FTDI chips. You can download the latest FTDI drivers by clicking here.
Next you'll need to download the Arduino software, also known as the Arduino IDE. The Arduino IDE is where you'll be writing your programs, uploading to BreadBro, and communicating with your projects. To download the Arduino IDE, click here:
