Arduino Programming Notebook is a comprehensive guidebook for anyone who wants to learn how to program with Arduino, the open-source electronics platform that is used by millions of makers, hobbyists, and professionals around the world.
The book is authored by Brian Evans, an experienced software engineer and professor of electrical engineering and computer science at the University of Michigan. It is designed to be a practical, hands-on guide that covers all the basics of Arduino programming, including syntax, control structures, data types, functions, and libraries.
The book is organized into 10 chapters, each of which covers a different aspect of programming with Arduino. Chapter 1 provides an introduction to Arduino and explains how to set up your development environment. Chapter 2 covers the basics of programming in the Arduino language, including the structure of an Arduino program and the use of variables and constants.
Chapter 3 focuses on control structures, including if statements, while loops, and for loops, while Chapter 4 covers data types, including integers, floating-point numbers, and strings. Chapter 5 covers functions, including how to define and use functions in your Arduino programs.
Chapter 6 covers the use of libraries, which are collections of pre-written code that can be used to extend the functionality of your Arduino projects. Chapter 7 covers the use of serial communication, which allows your Arduino to communicate with other devices such as computers or sensors.
Chapter 8 covers the use of interrupts, which are a powerful feature of Arduino that allow you to respond to external events in real-time. Chapter 9 covers advanced topics such as timers, PWM (pulse-width modulation), and the use of the Arduino IDE (integrated development environment) to develop and debug your programs.
Finally, Chapter 10 provides several practical examples of Arduino projects that you can build, including a digital clock, a temperature sensor, and a robot arm.
Whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced programmer, Arduino Programming Notebook is an invaluable resource that will teach you everything you need to know to start building your own Arduino projects. With its clear explanations, practical examples, and hands-on exercises, this book is the perfect companion for anyone who wants to explore the world of Arduino programming.
