I really wanted more with this book. The overall concept is sound, teach those interested in the basics of Arduino programming. Unfortunately, the book is so far removed from the actual breadboards, components, and wiring, that it could have easily been written for almost any microcontroller or microprocessor.

I actually much preferred the basic book that came with my Arduino kit, "Arduino Projects Book" since it was focused primarily on teaching you how to connect components with supporting prog

The book I read to research this post was Programming Arduino Getting Started With Sketches by Simon Monk which is a very good book which I bought from kindle. This book which is somewhat brief is a guide to programming the Arduino in C. It is normally programmed via a computer and there is an optional LCD screen you can buy for the Arduino. It is more suited to controlling stuff than the Raspberry Pi although is compatible with less programming languages but is more ruggedly constructed. The Ar ...more

Great starter book to learn C++ for the Arduino Uno board. I started with a few simple projects and then did one with an ultrasonic transducer in a rangefinder application. First sketch displayed the output on the PC via a serial link, but then I took a piece of program from another sketch and stitched it in to put out the data on a small LCD display.

Much of what's in here can be learned from reading tutorials and other information on the web, but this book does a good job of bringing it all together in one place. I came to Arduino with some understanding of electronics and a good background in C-based programming languages, so I skimmed over quite a bit of it. But for someone who has limited experience programming but wants to try out Arduino and understand the language, this book will be very helpful. But even with all I've read, I picked ...more

Real basic stuff. If you know any programming or electronics, I suggest that you skip right to Simon Monk's follow-up book, _Programming Arduino Next Steps_.

I am just getting into Arduino and this is one of the books I have read. I have been in electronics for over 34 years so that part is a no-brainer but I needed info on the programming side. This book fit the bill. Excellent for beginners!
