If you are interested in learning more about programmable boards, such as Arduino, and are looking for a crash course, you can pick up much on the topic by not just reading about the topic but also doing some hands-on learning. You can do just that, along with paying very little to do so when you buy the Humble Book Bundle: Programmable Boards by Make Community. You’ll pay as little as $1 for books that explain getting started with IoT, Arduino projects, mBot, and more. You’ll get instruction and hands-on training in several areas. Buy the bundle and receive only the books you really need to learn more about programmable boards.
When you purchase the instructional books you’re most interested in, the price you pay will include some of the money going toward charity. You can donate to Humble’s featured charity, Maker Ed, or choose a different charity as well. Humble has raised $150,000,000 to date for its various charities.
Pay Just $1 or More
For as little as $1, you can get seven book titles to get you on your way to learning more about programmable boards. Among these is Getting Started with the Internet of Things by Make Community LLC. If you have basic programming skills, you can use IoT devices to create a variety of useful systems. This hands-on guide educates you on how to start building your own IoT projects with just a Netduino Plus, a USB cable, sensors, an Ethernet connection, and your imagination.
Pay at Least $8
You’ll find complete instructions in Make a Mind-Controlled Arduino Robot by Make Community LLC, for building a simple robot chassis with servos, wheels, sensors, LEDs, and a speaker. The book is included in this additional group of six books that you can get by paying just $8 or more. If you’re familiar with Arduino and have basic mechanical building skills, this book will show you how to construct a robot that plays sounds, blinks lights, and reacts to signals from an affordable EEG headband.
Pay at Least $15
If you pay $15 or more, you can unlock a group of six more books to further your education into programmable boards even more. One of these additional titles is Learn Electronics with Arduino by Make Community LLC. Let this be your introduction to physical computing with the Arduino microcontroller platform. You need no prior experience, not even with electronics, to follow along with the color illustrations, easy-to-follow explanations, and step-by-step instructions to go from beginner to setting up the Arduino IDE and downloading and writing sketches to run.
