Do you want to learn maker skills but are overwhelmed and unsure where to dive in? Have no fear! This book is your introduction to physical computing with the Arduino microcontroller platform!
Start with building simple circuits on a breadboard to setting up the Arduino IDE and downloading and writing sketches to run on the Arduino. Readers will be introduced to basic electronics theory and programming concepts. Throughout the book, debugging practices are highlighted, so novices will know what to do if their circuits or their code don’t work for the current project. After completing the projects in this book, readers will have a solid foundation for building their own Arduino projects.
We like this book for its slow and steady pace, with a lot of images and diagrams that helps those of us who zone out when facing pages of small text.
