Bits & Pieces has been on a roll lately when it comes to technical books related to Atmel-powered Arduinos. Over the past few weeks, we’ve taken a closer look at a number of titles, including “Arduino Robot Bonanza,” “Arduino and Lego Projects,” “Arduino Workshop: A Hands-On Introduction with 65 Projects” and “Practical AVR Microcontrollers.”
Today we wanted to talk about “Exploring Arduino: Tools and Techniques for Engineering Wizardry,” which uses the popular board as a platform to teach readers about electrical engineering, programming and human-computer interaction.
Written by Jeremy Blum, the book is targeted at both hobbyists and engineers, both of whom will benefit from paced lessons walking readers through practical educational exercises which gradually become more advanced.
In addition to specific projects, the book offers up advice about programming and design that can be applied to numerous projects.
“Exploring Arduino: Tools and Techniques for Engineering Wizardry” also covers electrical engineering and programming concepts – interfacing with the world through analog and digital sensors, as well as communicating with various devices.
“Code snippets and schematics will [continue to] serve as a useful reference for future projects even after you’ve mastered all the topics in the book,” added Blum.
“Exploring Arduino: Tools and Techniques for Engineering Wizardry” can be pre-ordered on Amazon for $24.79 here.
