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.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
