Book Description

Nov. 8 2011 0071784225 978-0071784221 1

Program Arduino with ease!

Using clear, easy-to-follow examples, Programming Arduino: Getting Started with Sketches reveals the software side of Arduino and explains how to write well-crafted sketches using the modified C language of Arduino. No prior programming experience is required! The downloadable sample programs featured in the book can be used as-is or modified to suit your purposes.

  • Understand Arduino hardware fundamentals
  • Install the software, power it up, and upload your first sketch
  • Learn C language basics
  • Write functions in Arduino sketches
  • Structure data using arrays and strings
  • Use Arduino's digital and analog inputs and outputs in your programs
  • Work with the Standard Arduino Library
  • Write sketches that can store data
  • Program LCD displays
  • Use an Ethernet shield to enable Arduino to function as a web server
  • Write your own Arduino libraries

In December 2011, Arduino 1.0 was released. This changed a few things that have caused two of the sketches in this book to break. The change that has caused trouble is that the classes 'Server' and 'Client' have been renamed to 'EthernetServer' and 'EthernetClient' respectively. To fix this:

  • Edit sketches 10-01 and 10-02 to replace all occurrences of the word 'Server' with 'EthernetServer' and all occurrences of 'Client' with 'EthernetClient'.
  • Alternatively, you can download the modified sketches for 10-01 and 10-02 from here:

5.0 out of 5 stars Sketches Jan. 30 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I don't know if it's fair for me to comment on the book, as I am still using the Dummies book to get up and running. I've scanned it and I believe it will be very useful once I get a little more advanced. So, when perusing all the books available to start out, I felt that this Programming Arduino, and Arduino for Dummies, was as good a place as any to start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compact, well written, essential information. Oct. 23 2013
By Bruno L
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'd say this book is essential for someone who takes his/her first steps with Arduino. Includes essential information about the hardware, but also enough to get going with 'C'. Quite a lot of info in a little book!

3.0 out of 5 stars decent starter book Sept. 26 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
hey. good starter book - definitely not thorough on the subject. I think if this book was $5-$10 more with smaller print and twice as long it could be better. Examples can be shrunk and fit onto a single or two opposing pages. together with other arduino books, the information is more useful. GENERAL CONCEPTS ARE WELL INTRODUCED. buy an advanced book at the same time as this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good beginner's guide Aug. 3 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A very good beginner's guide for programming the Arduino. Would be a 5 if there was a larger section on the Arduino itself that explained its "arms and legs". All-in-all, a really good place to start; should be able to perform most functions you need using this guide.
