This week I got the Arduino to talk to the Raspberry Pi. The project is pretty basic. The Arduino counts from 0 to 255 in a loop
Then is sends data to the Raspberry Pi via the serial port. The data is displayed in a python shell

Super simple instructions. Worked exactly like it said it was going to.

Yes the project was simple but I needed to know how to use command line in terminal in order to make sure I had the python serial library.
I also had to be familiar with both the Arduino IDE and the Python3 IDLE to complete the project.
