By going through these exercises, I was able to learn the basics of creating a program and connecting it to the Particle dashboard so it can receive instructions from the internet.

First Sketch:

Exercise 1

Modify the program to Blink on and off every 3 seconds.

Exercise 2

Change the program to blink on and off 5 times then stop for 3 seconds. Each blink should be 0.5s (a half second)

Exercise 3

Go back to the original program. Now add a second LED to the circuit.

Program the LED’s to alternate blinks i.e. when LED 1 turns on, LED 2 turns off, then when LED 2 turns on, LED 1 turns off.
