Think you can’t learn how to code with a simple board? Think again. This guidebook is going to show us all of the steps that we need to take in order to learn how to do all of the programming projects that we want. And it is just the size of your wallet!

Don’t think this is possible? Then, read on.

Some of the great things that you can learn about for programming with the Arduino board that is found in this guidebook will include the following:

  • The basics that you need to know about Arduino, how the board will work, and even how to set up our board so we can start working with it
  • Some of the basics of coding with Arduino and how to begin writing our own programs
  • How to take the Arduino board and turn it into your own personal machine to use however you want
  • A look at the C language and how it can be used on your Arduino board
  • How to work with the logic statements, the operators, and how to do computer interfacing with your board
  • The different API functions of this board and how they will affect the projects that you can use
  • A look at the stream class and how this can help us to work with the strings in our code
  • A finale with how to create our own user-defined functions to really add some power to our codes and programs

Programming and creating your own projects is no longer reserved for those who have a lot of money or who have been able to work with technology for years.

Arduino is designed for beginners and can ensure that we can actually create some of the projects that you want. This guidebook will show you exactly how easy it can be to make some of your own codes and programs, and all you really need is a simple Arduino board.

Leads you through the basics of Arduino.

Julian James leads you through the basics of Arduino using great simple projects to build your knowledge and expand your understanding of the workings of this wonderfully capable little device. He explores the differences between the various iterations of the Arduino family and highlights some of the their more useful features in the process. My confidence in developing useful applications with the Arduino increased dramatically from his book.

Broadens my knowledge about Arduino Programming.

I’m still making my way through this book, but so far it’s the best one I’ve found on the subject. There are examples and code that build up from basics to very interesting, more sophisticated functionality very quickly. Really broadens my knowledge and have helped me a lot with Arduino programming. I feel like I am really understanding both how micro programmers work and basic electronics.

I love the way it is presented. Thanks a lot!

I found it very useful and helpful for getting an introduction to things like communication between a Windows app and the Arduino board. The code is accurate as is the wiring diagrams. That makes things a little easier when you are new to it all. I think the author does a good job of breaking down the code so you understand why you are doing things. I am just getting started using Arduino and hey I love the way it is presented.

Breaks down the code and explains everything

It is really good to get your feet wet, especially if you are not great at programming because for every project it breaks down the code and explains everything step-by-step. This book clearly explains the commands and rules of Arduino programming while giving nice examples that help one learn. Easy to understand and will answer so many of your newbie questions in a way you could understand. I highly recommend this book

This is absolutely the BEST one for beginners.

A very easy book to help in understanding the Arduino Programming platform. In case you’ve never heard of an Arduino before, it is an open-source electronic interface that has two parts: the first is the programmable circuit board, and the other is a coding program of your choice to run to your computer. The book provides all the essential information in step by step approach and in simple way. Indeed, this book helped me a lot to learn it effectively. I'm still learning and in this book you will get a clear idea about this programming, this makes your learning painless. Overall, I am really enjoying this book and I am learning a great deal, especially about the Strategies, Techniques Tricks and Practices. For me, this is a must have book for newcomers to Arduino and the foundation of my new and growing library for my new Arduino hobby.
