Yesterday I wrote about a great new book that I picked up at Maker Faire. Actually, I picked up 2 new books at Maker Faire, the other one was Getting Started with Arduino by Massimo Banzi, co-founder of Arduino. Massimo did a great job explaining all about this amazing little micro-controller and basic electronics. Here are some of the topics covered in the book:

  • Interaction design and physical computing
  • The Arduino hardware and software development environment
  • Basics of electricity and electronics
  • Prototyping on a solderless breadboard
  • Drawing a schematic diagram

Getting Started with Arduino is a great place to start your journey into the amazing, and sometimes crazy, world of micro-controllers and physical computing.
