NEW PRODUCT – Programming Arduino By Simon Monk. 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
Make Great Stuff!

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
