Welcome to Crash Course Arduino!
Have you heard of the Arduino? Its a small but powerful micro-controller that can be used to create many amazing things. An Arduino can be used to sense its own environment, connect and communicate with the Internet, manipulate devices around it, send messages, and much much more. Last year, over 700,000 hobbyists were using and contributing to the Arduino environment.
This course is designed to take you from 0 to 100 with Arduino in less than an hour. At the end of the course, you'll be fully familiarized with Arduino and ready to build your own applications and devices. Ideally, this course is for beginners who want to get their toes wet with the Arduino system but those already familiar with Arduino can still learn from the techniques used in this course.
If you're interested in Arduino, or micro-controllers in general, and don't know where to start - you've found the perfect course. Join the maker revolution!
What you'll learn in this course:
How to setup the Arduino software and start outputting code
How to understand and write code that your Arduino can understand
How to setup Serial communication
How to use a breadboard, and RGB sensor, and a LED Pin.
How to create a variety of functions that interact with your Arduino
How to create a device that detects your rooms temperature and changes colors accordingly.
ALL IN LESS THAN AN HOUR!
Hi, I'm Daniel. Thanks for checking out my course.
I've been working with Arduino for almost a decade now and have been a big part of the maker movement, helping spread knowledge of electronics, programming, and trying to help anyone create AWESOME projects. I'm originally from Brazil but have been living all over the world for the last 5 years. I started programming when I was 12 and have loved every minute of it since.
My projects have been featured on Instructables, Makezine, Scoop it, Hackaday, and digg back in the day (it even crashed my servers). I regularly teach Arduino workshops in Brazil that also get press mentions.
You can find more of my projects on the youtube such as an Arduino breathlyzer (fun), a binary clock, and an Arduino greenhouse.
I also have a blog where I share my hobbies and projects such as finding the perfect burger.
