Boron code language? Noob questions

This is such a noobie question, but I have my first Boron / hardware, and I’m beginningto look at what language Boron uses. I found in some obscure documentation page that it uses “Wiring” language, but that’s based on C++? Basically, I’m looking for 2 things:

  1. Confirmation on what language(s) Boron/Particle uses in its programs.
  2. A good resource to begin learning the language. This is not my industry and I’m not sure of the best resources to go to learn these particular languages :slight_smile: .

Any advice from more knowledgeable people would be helpful! Thank you.

Yup, Wiring is a language based on C++. But you won’t find much under that name because it’s more widely known as the language popularized (invented by?) Arduino.

Check out basic Arduino tutorials here:

If you go to, you can find some specific Arduino examples for the Particle hardware.

Almost 100% of Arduino-based code will work on Particle. Enjoy!

Thank you! I’m sure I’ll have much more questions. I tried doing a “blink LED” example but it turned out I didn’t have the resistors hooked up to the boron / breadboard, so I’m guessing that’s why it didn’t work :face_with_head_bandage: .
