Arduino workshop at Local Motors

A couple of weeks ago I attended a workshop on Arduino at Local Motors (LM). There were about 20 people, some with experience; others with none. Some brought their own Arduino kits and LM provided kits for us who did not have. First, there was a presentation on Arduino so that we could understand the basics. Then we started the workshop; our first exercise was to blink a LED. In Arduino terms, you enable one pin as output, then you loop to set the value to 0 and 1. Here's the code:

int led = 13;
