This channel has great info on electronics basics. The PWM video is a good place to start because that term gets thrown around a lot at our meets

Software -

JavaScript for Cats: http://jsforcats.com/ 

For those contemplating attacking the Ariel interface code, nodeJS, the language the robot is primarily programmed in, is built on JavaScript. This is its own programming language and not be confused with the similar sounding but different Java language. Here is a link to a website that offers an introductory tutorial for JS.

This video gives a nice general rundown of what Arduinos are and simple coding for it. The channel also offers good tutorials on broader range of electronic and computer technoloy
