Programming Arduino Getting Started with Sketches by Simon Monk

Arduino is an electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino can be used to develop interactive objects, taking inputs from a variety of switches or sensors and controlling lights, motors, and other actuators; the Internet connects the physical world to computer-based systems in new ways and unleashes a wave of new applications and possibilities.

Getting Started with Sketches provides you with the information you need to get started programming Arduino easily, so that you can start creating your own interactive objects.

Programming Arduino Getting Started with Sketches by Simon Monk teaches you how to use this compact device, which can be used in projects related to physical computing, data logging, and much more.

You’ll discover what makes the Arduino board so special and get hands-on experience with it. Then you’ll learn how to write your own sketches using the Arduino IDE and connect it to other systems using shields or wirelessly over Bluetooth LE.

Arduino microcontrollers are ubiquitous these days, and you’ve probably heard of the Arduino platform before even if you don’t know exactly what it is.

The Arduino Getting Started with Sketches guide provides the perfect introduction to this incredibly versatile tool, teaching you everything from which circuit board to buy to programming it through the Arduino IDE software and creating your first few sketches (small programs).

Further Reading

If you’re looking for a great book to get started programming, I recommend Programming Arduino: Getting Started with Sketches (Volume 1) by Simon Monk. Written in an accessible and enjoyable tone, it’s filled with practical advice that will help make your first steps with an Arduino less intimidating.
