How to "Multithread" an Arduino via Protothreading to execute more than one task at once without interruption
Arduino's great, but it is not easy to handle more than one task at the same time, and if you want to do two (or more) things at once at separate intervals? You'll need protothreading!
This Course teaches you something you may have wanted to do during your prototyping career, coaxing a single-core Arduino to do 3 things at once. In this case
Pulsing a signal without interruption
Incrementing a variable every second and writing it to the display without interruption
Displaying different messages every few seconds and writing them to the display without interruption
Welcome to this course.
In this course, you will learn Protothreading which is a way of performing what would normally be a multitasking operation (doing two or more things at once or at different intervals) on an Arduino. In other words, it's "multithreaded"! and since the Arduino is a single-core chip, multithreading itself is impossible. Then how on earth will we do that! the answer is Protothreading!!

Advantages of Protothreading
Reactive systems – constantly monitoring
More responsive to user input
The CPU can handle multiple inputs simultaneously
Can take advantage of parallel processing
Better memory Management
A thread can execute concurrently with other threads within a single process.
