The Arduino is a cheap and readily-available hardware development platform based around an open source, programmable circuit board. It’s being used in workshops, classrooms and homes around the world for fun, for art, for science and even for profit. Just published, Arduino For Dummies does not assume any prior knowledge or skill on the part of the reader, and provides all the information needed to get up and running.
In his book, John Nussey guides the readers on key areas such as: where to buy Arduino; installing Arduino; creating basic projects that produce light, sound and motion; getting data in and out of the Arduino; connecting the Arduino to servos and sensors; and extending the capabilities using shields and specialist hardware.
Primarily aimed at designers, hobbyists, engineers, developers and scientists, Arduino For Dummies will take the user gently through the basics, then show them the awesome possibilities of this tiny blue board.
Arduino For Dummies is available now, priced £16.99.
