Programming Arduino: Getting Started with Sketches
What you'll learn
- How to write Arduino C for their Arduino
- How to use the Serial Monitor
- How to write code to access digital and analog inputs and outputs
- How to write their own functions
- How to use arrays and strings
- An Arduino Uno and USB cable
- Optionally a multimeter and wire
This course is intended for the Arduino beginner who wants to learn how to write code for their Arduino. The course concentrates on how to program your Arduino rather than electronics and is based on my best selling book Programming Arduino: Getting Started with Sketches.
The course explains in simple terms what is meant by a program and then leads the participant in a step-by-step manner through the process of writing their first sketch (Arduino program). The course lectures are supplemented with exercises to reinforce the participants understanding.
After completing this course you will be able to write simple programs for your Arduino and will have learnt a fair bit about the C programming language that Arduino uses.
Who this course is for:
- Beginner Arduino users new to programming
- Electronics hobbyists wanting to learn how to program a microcontroiller
- Students and educators interested in embedded software
