Thought i'd tell you about my new book, "Beginning Arduino" that is now available:-
The book is desined to take absolute beginners in both electronics and programming through a total of 50 projetcs, learning as you go, until by Project 50 you are proficient at using the Arduino.
You will learn such things as:-
* Controling motors and servos
* LCD Displays
* Ethernet shield usage
* sending data to Pachube
* Scrolling text on LED displays
* Touch screens
* Reading and writing to SD cards
* Making a line following robot
...and so on. The style of the book is easy going, with the reader diving right into projects from the start and not learning theory first. The best way to learn, in my opinion, is to get stuck in and learn as you go along.
The book is full of colour diagrams showing breadboard circuit diagrams using Fritzing and full code for each project is included. The chapter then explains in easy to follow, step by step procedures, how both the electronics and the code works so you get a full understanding of how to use the Arduino, how to program it and how to use components with it. Each project builds on the knowledge of previous projects.
This is the book I wish I had when I first started in Arduino development. It's available now from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and all good bookshops.
