Can you point me to a tutoiral in firefly that explains the code generation for this video using firefly

You would have to email the authors of that project. The code generator attempts to translate any Grasshopper definition into arduino code so that the arduino can run autonomously (or doesn't need to be connected to your computer via USB cable). In this video, they are clearly driving the louvers while Grasshopper is running, so I'm not sure they are even using the code generator. And if the angle of each louver is dependent on actual Rhino/Grasshopper geometry (say from an attractor point, etc.) then the code generator wont necessarily work (since an arduino doesn't know what a point, line, surface, mesh, etc. are). But perhaps if you email the authors (I don't have their contact information) then they can explain more about their process.
