This guide will get you started with some introductory programming activities exploring each of the LilyPad pieces on the LilyPad ProtoSnap Plus. If you’ve never used Arduino to program before, this guide will walk you through the basics with example code to upload and explore.

You can follow along with this guide with both the LilyPad ProtoSnap Plus standalone board or the LilyPad ProtoSnap Plus Kit. This guide will not cover construction of a project with conductive thread, so either product will work for you.
