Expanded Library

Arduino Playbook for Developers

by Jon Flanders

This course will teach you how to get started using the Arduino platform and ecosystem.

What you'll learn

Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform that is easy to control with simple software. In this course, Arduino for Developers, you'll learn how to put together novel hardware solutions using the Arduino platform. First, you'll start by learning about what Arduino is, and what its capabilities are, as well as the different models available. Next, you’ll get introduced to the tools of the Arduino Ecosystem, including its programming language and IDE. Then, you'll learn how to use those tools to create, deploy, debug, and monitor an Arduino program. After that, you'll learn about how to use those same tools to write a program that can interact with simple hardware. Finally, you'll explore the hardware components that are known as Shields in the Arduino Ecosystem and how they can be used and combined to create more complex solutions. When you're finished with this course, you'll be able to create your next hardware adventure using Arduino as its central component.
