BFRD By default, Python isn't the programming language of Arduino controllers. However, it *is* the default language on Raspberry Pi controllers. I have a Pi set up as an arcade emulator using RetroPie. You can still do hands-on programming with LEDs and other devices as well as play games. As I recall the pricing differences between the two is negligible.

Now I saw someone talk about arduino and a recommendation of LED. I think it would be something i could enjoy doing for my kids make something need with lights and i wasnt sure if thats something that i need to get a bunch of knowledge under my belt or is that a relatively easy beginner project.

As of right now i can look at a lot of the coding and understand its process but i am not at a point where i can say i want to make this and write out the code just yet.
With Arduino its easy to turn LEDs on and off. You could also buy a LED controller so you can control much more LEDs than the Arduino output pins supoort. Then you cam create a game of connect 4 with LEDs.
