Arduino Step by Step Getting Started

A comprehensive course designed for new Arduino Makers

This course is for the new Arduino Maker.

Do you have a passion for learning?

Are you excited about becoming a Maker with the Arduino?

If you answered "yes!" to both, then you are ready to get started!

In making this course, I emphasized the importance of getting the basics right and learning to mastery. As an educator for over 15 years, I know first-hand that hitting a roadblock because you lack the fundamental knowledge to progress can be demotivating.

In ASbS: Getting Started, I make sure that in the more than 15 hours of video content, mini projects and quizzes, we cover all the basics so that you can enjoy learning about the Arduino.

By the end of the course, you will have a good understanding of the capabilities of the Arduino Uno, the best Arduino for people getting started, and you will be familiar with the capabilities of several of its cousins.

You will be comfortable with the basic prototyping tools and their usage, the basics of the Arduino programming environment, language and programming.

You will be able to use a variety of components. From simple buttons and LEDs, to visible color and ultraviolet light, and other environment sensors.

Apart from knowing how to use the components that I demonstrate in this course, you will also learn how to read datasheets, how to use libraries on your own, and how to learn the skills you need to create the gadgets you want, on your own. With knowledge comes freedom, and I will help you get there.

I invite you to review the free lectures in the first section of the course to find out more details about it.

If you are excited about becoming a Maker with the Arduino, join many other Makers and me in Arduino Step by Step 2017: Getting Started!

I look forward to learning with you!

What are the differences and similarities between Arduino Step by Step 2017 Getting Started and Arduino Step by Step Your Complete Guide?

Arduino Step by Step 2017 Getting Started does not replace Arduino Step by Step Your Complete Guide! I fully support, and I am committed to both.

Arduino Step by Step 2017 Getting Started is designed for complete beginners, while Arduino Step by Step Your Complete Guide is more suitable for intermediate Makers.

Please consult the following comparison table to see exactly what are the similarities and differences between the two courses.
