Master programming Arduino with this hands-on guide

Arduino Sketches is a practical guide to programming the increasingly popular microcontroller that brings gadgets to life. Accessible to tech-lovers at any level, this book provides expert instruction on Arduino programming and hands-on practice to test your skills. You'll find coverage of the various Arduino boards, detailed explanations of each standard library, and guidance on creating libraries from scratch – plus practical examples that demonstrate the everyday use of the skills you're learning. Work on increasingly advanced programming projects, and gain more control as you learn about hardware-specific libraries and how to build your own. Take full advantage of the Arduino API, and learn the tips and tricks that will broaden your skillset.

The Arduino development board comes with an embedded processor and sockets that allow you to quickly attach peripherals without tools or solders. It's easy to build, easy to program, and requires no specialized hardware. For the hobbyist, it's a dream come true – especially as the popularity of this open-source project inspires even the major tech companies to develop compatible products. Arduino Sketches is a practical, comprehensive guide to getting the most out of your Arduino setup. You'll learn to:

  • Communicate through Ethernet, WiFi, USB, Firmata, and Xbee
  • Find, import, and update user libraries, and learn to create your own
  • Master the Arduino Due, Esplora, Yun, and Robot boards for enhanced communication, signal-sending, and peripherals
  • Play audio files, send keystrokes to a computer, control LED and cursor movement, and more

This book presents the Arduino fundamentals in a way that helps you apply future additions to the Arduino language, providing a great foundation in this rapidly-growing project. If you're looking to explore Arduino programming, Arduino Sketches is the toolbox you need to get started.

The quick, easy way to leap into the fascinating world of physical computing

This is no ordinary circuit board. Arduino allows anyone, whether you're an artist, designer, programmer or hobbyist, to learn about and play with electronics. Through this book you learn how to build a variety of circuits that can sense or control things in the real world. Maybe you'll prototype your own product or create a piece of interactive artwork? This book equips you with everything you'll need to build your own Arduino project, but what you make is up to you! If you're ready to bring your ideas into the real world or are curious about the possibilities, this book is for you. 

? Learn by doing ? start building circuits and programming your Arduino with a few easy to follow examples - right away!

? Easy does it ? work through Arduino sketches line by line in plain English, to learn of how a they work and how to write your own

? Solder on! ? Only ever used a breadboard in the kitchen? Don't know your soldering iron from a curling iron? No problem, you'll be prototyping in no time

? Kitted out ? discover new and interesting hardware to make your Arduino into anything from a mobile phone to a geiger counter!

? Become an Arduino savant ? learn all about functions, arrays, libraries, shields and other tools of the trade to take your Arduino project to the next level.

? Get social ? teach your Arduino to communicate with software running on a computer to link the physical world with the virtual world

It's hardware, it's software, it's fun! Start building the next cool gizmo with Arduino and Arduino For Dummies.
