Getting Started with Teensy (Arduino Alternative)


In this project I’m going to show you how to get started with Teensy.

Thanks to Paul from PJRC.com for sending me the Teensy 3.0. This is by far the best Arduino alternative out there.

I’ve made a video where I go into some of the specifications of this board and I also show how to create a blink LED project with Teensy in less than 4 minutes.
