void setup() {
  pinMode(2, INPUT);// define pin 2 as input
  Serial.begin(9600);// initialize the serial monitor
                     // with 9600 baud
  Serial.println("Push button Test");
  pinMode(8, OUTPUT);


void loop() {
		//Robojax Step By Step Arduino Course
 int pushButtonValue = digitalRead(2);
 if(pushButtonValue == LOW)
  Serial.println("Button pushed");
  digitalWrite(8,HIGH);// turn ON the LED
  //Serial.println("Button NOT pushed");
  digitalWrite(8, LOW);// turn OFF the LED
