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.
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.
