New to Arduino? It’s never too late to start! The Open Source Hardware Group offers a handy 14 part beginner course in Arduino. Check it out here!

There is tons of information on the internet about Arduino including forums, tutorials, and project websites – it is overwhelming (and time consuming)! Especially when you are looking for a simple and concise introduction to the basics – many times, people assume too much electronics or programming background (or both), making it difficult to get anywhere.

The Arduino Short Course for Absolute Beginners is a tutorial style collection of lessons designed to be simple and easy to follow which uses only the most relevant circuits and programs and assumes nothing about your prior electronics or programming experience.

What you will Learn:

  • The basics of programming your Arduino
  • Just enough electronics to be dangerous
  • How to make your Arduino respond to sensors
  • How to build teleporters, levitating fortresses and nuclear reactors (maybe a stretch…)

The course will cover the most useful, enlightening and simplest examples to get you started on the road to hacking just about anything.
