Arduino Programming: Advanced Methods and Strategies to Learn Arduino Programming by Stuart Nicholas

The Arduino microcontroller platform has been around since 2005, and it’s extremely popular among hobbyists and professionals alike. While learning to program the Arduino can be a challenge without the right guidebook, there are plenty of excellent books on the market to help you master this subject quickly and painlessly.

This book, Arduino Programming: Advanced Methods and Strategies to Learn Arduino Programming by Stuart Nicholas, will give you everything you need to start writing code for your Arduino, from basic principles all the way through advanced techniques that allow you to build complex projects from scratch.

If you’re interested in learning Arduino programming, there are plenty of options available to you. However, Stuart Nicholas’ book, Arduino Programming: Advanced Methods and Strategies to Learn Arduino Programming , is perhaps the best resource currently available on the subject. It will take you from your initial setup right through to creating advanced programs that can be applied to almost any project type.


Introduction

Are you an experienced C programmer but new to Arduino or a beginner who wants to learn programming for Arduino? If so, then you are in for a treat. This guide is designed specifically for Arduino developers of all levels. You will learn about new features of Arduino in addition to existing ones like PWM, I2C , Analog Read/Write etc.

You will also be shown different coding strategies that can help you boost your productivity while using Arduino. The best part is that everything explained in detail here is easy enough for anyone with a basic understanding of c language and microcontrollers.


Some preliminary information

Since its introduction in 2005, Arduino has become a staple of DIY electronics projects. Its simple design, power efficiency, and flexibility have made it one of the most popular open-source platforms on which people can learn about microcontrollers. Indeed, there are dozens of websites dedicated to helping new users get started with their first Arduino project.

And yet some feel that despite these resources, Arduino programming still seems daunting for beginners. In an effort to streamline this process, we’ll be going over 3 advanced techniques that will allow even beginners to start controlling more complex hardware projects through their Arduinos. Let’s begin!


What this book covers

This book covers everything you need to get started with programming in Arduino. It will guide you from installation through configuration, giving a high-level overview of programming concepts along the way. You’ll gain a solid understanding of C++ as it applies to firmware development, as well as an in-depth look at some other languages such as Python that are commonly used with Arduino.

By exploring options for communicating with hardware devices such as sensors, displays, motors, and servos, you’ll get practical experience making projects come alive. The last section is all about online resources—tips on how best to interact online with like-minded communities and useful resources for finding more information after you finish reading.


Who this book is for

This book is written for hobbyists or professionals who want to learn more about programming a computer using an Arduino microcontroller. If you are new to programming but have some basic background knowledge, then you’ll be able to use it as a complete guide from start-to-finish.

However, if you have used Arduinos before and are looking for some tips or secrets, then these advanced methods will show you that there’s always something new waiting for you in programming.

By learning some advanced techniques, such as hardware interrupts, serial communication techniques with LCD displays, servo motors programming techniques, many other little things that can help bring your idea from concept into fruition.


Assumptions about you, the reader

You’ve got a solid grasp of Arduino programming basics. You have basic knowledge of Arduino hardware (i.e., know what an LED is). You may have a working copy of CodeBlocks or Eclipse installed. You’re comfortable creating code from scratch.


How to use this book

It is recommended you read each chapter in order. The book is designed so that it builds upon itself. If you have previous experience of programming in C or C++ then I recommend reading chapter one for an overview on using a compiler before moving onto chapter two for your first introduction to writing Arduino programs.

It is not necessary, but if you are new to C/C++ programming you may find the material harder without little prior knowledge. This will make it easier for readers who have never programmed before, as we go from novices to experts gradually.

Chapter three looks at how we can program more than one LED on an output port, which we would otherwise be unable to do using only 2 pins like we did in Chapter 2, LEDs & Outputs.


Conclusion

First of all, thanks so much for putting your book on sale! I bought a copy and finished it in less than two days. The book was well-written, educational, and entertaining.

I also noticed that you included quite a few interactive exercises (or challenges) throughout each chapter. This helped me stay focused on actually learning from my reading material instead of just skimming over it or passively reading it in chunks. In all honesty, those challenges are what really drew me into buying your book. Thanks again for writing such an excellent book!
