Adventures with Arduino Part 1

I recently bought a compatible Arduino Uno R3 from Banggood (1),  this is essentially the same as the original R3).  Just a lot cheaper, thanks to the Open hardware nature of Arduino.(2)

So armed with the book “Arduino Projects Handbook (3) I have created the first of the projects which is to light up and flash an LED.
