Programming Arduino: Getting Started with Sketches

by: Dr. Simon Monk


Abstract: Program Arduino with ease! Using clear, easy-to-follow examples, Programming ArduinoTM: Getting Started with Sketches reveals the software side of Arduino and explains how to write well-crafted sketches using the modified C language of Arduino. No prior programming experience is required! The downloadable sample programs featured in the book can be used as-is or modified to suit your purposes. • Understand Arduino hardware fundamentals • Install the software, power it up, and upload your first sketch • Learn C language basics • Write functions in Arduino sketches • Structure data using arrays and strings • Use Arduino's digital and analog inputs and outputs in your programs • Work with the Standard Arduino Library • Write sketches that can store data • Program LCD displays • Use an Ethernet shield to enable Arduino to function as a web server • Write your own Arduino libraries
