Tools and Techniques for Engineering Wizardry
By Jeremy Blum
Publisher: Wiley
Final Release Date: July 2013
Pages: 360

“Jeremy’s easy-to-understand style and depth of content about the Arduino … will not only allow digital beginners to get their footing but will also allow the old guard of hardware to dip a toe into the hobbyist-friendly end of the swimming pool and start connecting their devices.”
- Chris Gammell, Co-host of the Amp Hour Podcast

ARDUINO CAN TAKE YOU ANYWHERE. THIS BOOK IS THE ROADMAP.

Exploring Arduino shows how to use the world’s most popular microcontroller to create cool, practical, artistic, and educational projects. Through lessons in electrical engineering, programming, and human computer interaction, this book walks you through specific, increasingly complex projects, all the while providing best practices that can apply to your own projects once you’ve mastered these. You’ll acquire valuable skills – and have a whole lot of fun.
• Explore the features of several commonly used Arduino boards
• Use the Arduino to control very simple tasks or complex electronics
• Learn principles of system design, programming, and electrical engineering
• Discover code snippets, best practices, and system schematics you can apply to your  original projects
• Master skills you can use for engineering endeavors in other fields and with  different platforms

Find schematics, tutorial videos, code download, and more at the companion website: www.exploringarduino.com.

        Comments about oreilly Exploring Arduino:

        I learned a lot and even after many electrical engineering courses I couldn't understand what I had learned until I learned through application from this book. I am hoping to make some great projects using the knowledge obtained from this book. I really liked that Jeremy discussed how things work and how to build them but didn't just bombard us with sample code; he gave us 1 sample code per chapter and explained the functionality so we can use the tools to build new projects and build a greater understanding about the software + hardware. He didn't just spoon-feed the information but taught us methodologies for us to self-learn and expand using his ways on the rest of the data provided through internet. Using this book I can understand how to read different data sheets and how to use different hardware with software.
