Arduino for Beginners (Que Video)

5+ Hours of Video Instruction

Arduino for Beginners instructs you on how to build five easy projects to get you started!

These quick and simple video tutorials are the perfect way to break into the Arduino space. John Baichtal leads you through the fundamentals in an easy to follow learning path. In no time at all you will become familiar with the Arduino hardware. You’ll learn how to program the Arduino and connect sensors.

John Baichtal got his start writing blog posts for Wired's legendary GeekDad blog as well as the DIYer's bible MAKE Magazine. From there he branched out into authoring books about toys, tools, robots, and hobby electronics. He is the co-author of The Cult of Lego (No Starch) and author of Hack This: 24 Incredible Hackerspace Projects from the DIY Movement as well as Basic Robot Building With Lego Mindstorms NXT 2.0 (both from Que). Most recently he wrote Make: Lego and Arduino Projects for MAKE, collaborating with Adam Wolf and Matthew Beckler. He lives in Minneapolis, MN, with his wife and three children.
