Getting Started with Arduino Book Giveaway


In celebration of our new Make: Arduino page, we’re giving away five copies of Massimo Banzi’s popular book Getting Started with Arduino. This rockin’ little book serves as the perfect introduction to Arduino and even to high-tech making/tinkering in general. To be eligible for the drawing, click here and enter your comments on the theme of: Everything I always wanted to know about Arduino but was afraid to ask. Ask your vexiest questions. And if you want to help out and offer answers, that would be great too (and make you eligible for the drawing). The deadline for entries is Thursday 11:59pm PST. Winners announced on Friday.

[BTW: Comments left here will not be eligible. Please leave them in the topic on the Make: Arduino page linked below.]
