Introduction to Arduino: A Piece of Cake (Alan G. Smith)

This book differs from many others on Arduino in that it assumes no prior experience in programming or electronics. It doesn't go into great detail about those subjects; rather, it gives you just enough information to make things.

This book contains:

  • Use lights to quickly learn basic programming concepts
  • Make noise and music on a speaker
  • Make a digital thermometer
  • Add graphics to your thermometer to show a graph of recorded temperature
  • Play with sensors to detect light, magnets, and knocking
  • Make a rubber band gun that uses a joystick for panning, tilting, and firing
  • Be encouraged to go create your own projects! There are exercises after each chapter (with sample solutions) to help you make sure you understand the concepts
