Note: This example assumes you are using the latest version of the Arduino IDE on your desktop. If this is your first time using Arduino, please review our tutorial on installing the Arduino IDE. If you have not previously installed an Arduino library, please check out our installation guide.

Now that the hardware is all set, lets look at some software examples. Before we get started though, make sure you have both the Arduino SAMD and the Sparkfun SAMD board definitions installed. If you need some help with this, check out the SAMD21 Mini/Dev Breakout Hookup Guide.
