This book is a great way to "break in" to JavaScript Robotics with Johnny-Five. Each chapter walks you through the basics and then illustrates how to build something with with what you've learned—which is a great strategy!

The animation chapter alone makes this a great book. Great introduction to nodebots and generally working with electronics + javascript. Presented in an approachable manner with clear explanations.

HASH(0xa6a9703c) out of 5 stars Fantastic Resource to Get Into JavaScript Robotics with Arduino Uno & Johnny Five Dec 17 2015
By Andrew Connell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I'm a seasoned JavaScript developer and aspiring hardware guy for my own personal projects. Having heard Kassandra on a podcast episode or two, I wanted to pick this book up. I found it very easy to grok and pickup the concepts. I am more of a Raspberry Pi guy and all the projects used the Arduino Uno - my only "complaint" that it should have been more visible in the marketing / cover - however I walked away placing an order for the Uno, something I've wanted to learn! All the projects were super simple to understand and implement... as a tech author I know how much work goes into this, but hoping for something that goes even deeper for her next work!

HASH(0xa6a9769c) out of 5 stars Errors in Code Jan. 23 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I purchased this book hoping to work through the various exercises. However, I found that a lot of the code contained errors and regularly returned "module.js:339 throw errors". I can fix simple errors where the code is missing a semi colon etc but I'm not an experienced coder and wasn't able to find most of the errors. The book suggests readers download the code from www.packetpub.com. However, they only offer code for chapters 1, 2, 7 and 8. There are nine chapters in the book and five are missing!

I'm really disappointed with this book given I was only able to successfully run a handful of the exercises.
HASH(0xa6a9784c) out of 5 stars Wonderful Introduction to Robotics for JavaScript Developers Feb. 11 2016
By Kamuela - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book assumes quite a bit less of your robotics experience than it does of your experience with JavaScript. It focuses a great deal on the excellent Johnny Five library for Raspberry Pi and Arduino. It helps you to learn the basics of motor control as well as sensor information through GPIO. If you already have JavaScript experience, this is definitely the best foray into extending your ability into the world of robotics.
