Book excerpt: Master programming Arduino with this hands-on guide Arduino Sketches is a practical guide to programming theincreasingly popular microcontroller that brings gadgets to life.Accessible to tech-lovers at any level, this book provides expertinstruction on Arduino programming and hands-on practice to testyour skills. You'll find coverage of the various Arduino boards,detailed explanations of each standard library, and guidance oncreating libraries from scratch – plus practical examplesthat demonstrate the everyday use of the skills you're learning.Work on increasingly advanced programming projects, and gain morecontrol as you learn about hardware-specific libraries and how tobuild your own. Take full advantage of the Arduino API, and learnthe tips and tricks that will broaden your skillset. The Arduino development board comes with an embedded processorand sockets that allow you to quickly attach peripherals withouttools or solders. It's easy to build, easy to program, and requiresno specialized hardware. For the hobbyist, it's a dream come true– especially as the popularity of this open-source projectinspires even the major tech companies to develop compatibleproducts. Arduino Sketches is a practical, comprehensiveguide to getting the most out of your Arduino setup. You'll learnto: Communicate through Ethernet, WiFi, USB, Firmata, and Xbee Find, import, and update user libraries, and learn to createyour own Master the Arduino Due, Esplora, Yun, and Robot boards forenhanced communication, signal-sending, and peripherals Play audio files, send keystrokes to a computer, control LEDand cursor movement, and more This book presents the Arduino fundamentals in a way that helpsyou apply future additions to the Arduino language, providing agreat foundation in this rapidly-growing project. If you're lookingto explore Arduino programming, Arduino Sketches is thetoolbox you need to get started.
