Code Post - Interfacing Arduino and Python

This is something I've done by hand at least ten times and always seem to lose it so I've decided to post it here. It is an easy way to debug and test stuff will developing software for the Arduino (or any Microcontroller really). There is a python code that sends string messages to the arduino over serial based on which arrow key on your keyboard is pressed. There is also an Arduino code that listens for these messages, then repeats the message back to the PC to make sure it went through.

I've been setting up my profile for selling on the marketplace and am wondering if there are any seller settings or tables to use for adding shipping classes.

Thanks!
