Author of 'Beginning Arduino'
Mike McRoberts is the author of the best selling Arduino book 'Beginning Arduino' now in its 2nd edition. He is the 2018 winner of the Raspberry Pi robotics competition held at Cambridge University in England each year and he also runs Medway makers, which is a small maker group in the Medway area of the UK.
Known as TheArduinoGuy on Twitter and elsewhere, Mike has been programming Arduinos for well over 10 years now. Mike discovered the Arduino when he was looking to build a cloud sensor to help with his hobby of astrophotography. In researching the various techniques possible to detect levels of cloud coverage he came across thermopile sensors and needed a way to take readings from one and send it to a laptop. This is when Mike discovered the Arduino and has never looked back since.
Mike has ran hundreds of Arduino and Raspberry Pi workshops at various places around the UK and has built countless devices using Arduino, ESP8266, ESp32 and Raspberry Pis, as well as other microcontrollers. He has well over 10 years experience in building projects using Arduino's both for personal use, collaboration with other people's projects and also for commerical products.
Over the years Mike has developed a teaching style that is especially suited to making complex subjects appear to be clear and simple. He is bringing well over 10 years of experience in the use and teaching of Arduino based projects to you. Mike takes a lot of time and effort to ensure every lecture is clear and easily understandable to even the most inexperienced student.
