Parduinobook Med
Practical Arduino (Jon Oxer & Hugh Blemings) – 1st print
This book is best used for people who’ve gone through our tutorials and want more! Please note that the book does not come with any electronic parts or hardware. You’ll probably want an Arduino starter pack or similar so that you have the Arduino, USB cable, power adapter, wires, and a protoshield. Read more

Makeelectronics Lrg
Make: Electronics (Charles Platt) – 1st print
We checked out this book before putting it in the shop, its geared towards ultimate-beginners and teaches electronics starting from basic core of analog to some digital to microcontrollers. You’ll learn tools, prototyping soldering techniques, transistors, 555’s, etc. while completing useful projects. A nice and tidy intro! This book is a good accompaniment to learning microcontrollers/Arduino in that it fills the necessary electronics theory and background. Read more

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. These are great additions to the store. I’m sure you’re well aware of others in case you’re thinking about expanding the offerings, but here’s a list of some favorites sitting on my bookshelf:

    Getting Started With Arduino, Banzi
    Tinkering With Arduino, Weldin (e-book)
    Electrical Engineering 101, Ashby
    Practical Electronics for Inventors, Scherz
    Physical Computing, O’Sullivan & Igoe
    Programming Interactivity, Noble
    Making Things Talk, Igoe
    Fashioning Technology, Pakhchyan


  2. It would be great if Adafruit offered kits containing supplies and components for the experiments.
